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

Would see a specialist right away ti get tested ...Read more

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.

If you are not feeling emotionally ok after removing the ovaries, there may be a hormonal issue that can be corrected. You are not going crazy! ...Read more

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..

Are you trying to get pregnant? Don't see the need for it unless you have problems conceiving. ...Read more

Very complicated: Every insurance plan makes up its own rules. You may be able to wait 6 months and then be covered. You may have to change plans. New health laws may make pre-existing condition exclusions illegal. If that passes in the country, in your state, or with your plan, then you may be in luck. This is a constantly frustrating issue, but you may have to play the game in order to have your procedure done. ...Read more
