Fine: You'll be fine. You probably won't be on any pain meds at all, assuming no complications with your surgery. Most important, because you're 42, is just to make sure that you prevent any blood clot by moving around frequently. Get up, if you can, every hour or so on your plane ride for circulation. Check out exercises you can do with your legs while sitting on plane to prevent blood clot. Read more

When you remove a cyst in someone who may want children in the future, you must fully separate the cyst from the normal tissue around it or it can send someone into menopause or harm their ovaries. Would see a specialist right away ti get tested Read more

Is it normal to be still bleeding 6 weeks after laparoscopic removal of ovarian cysts and both ovaries?

HORMONAL SHIFTS: When the ovaries are removed, there are tremendous hormonal changes in the body. The woman's response depends on whether post operative medications are given or not.

Does tubal test hurt? I am a virgin. I have an ovarian cyst so I will be undergoing laparoscopic procedure. They will also do the tubal test..

Tubal Test?: I believe you are referring a test to see if your fallopian tubes are patent (chromopertubation). If done during the laparoscopy you will be under anesthesia and you won't feel it. Obviously you will have some pain from the surgery.
Are you trying to get pregnant? Don't see the need for it unless you have problems conceiving. Read more
