Surgical Approach: An ovarian cyst removal is a surgical procedure where a cyst is removed from the ovary while not removing the ovary.
With ovulation: With laparoscopic ovarian cyst removal (cystectomy), you usually recover within a week or two and ovulation may be as early as 2-3 weeks. If your tubes are normal & fertility wasn't an issue prior, you can achieve pregnancy as soon as you're comfortable. If you had a laparotomy, give it 2 months minimum to allow proper healing & comfort. Take Folic Acid if planning a pregnancy & good luck to you.
Depends: How extensive was your surgery? You should wait 6 wks......Talk it out with your surgeon.
Ovarian cyst: The removal of an ovarian cyst will cause downtime of approximately 3 - 5 days.

Depends: This depends on many factors including your body habitus, the size and consistency of the mass, skill of the surgeon etc. Typically if it is straightforward then it may be as short as 15 minutes. Add anesthesia time and setup and maybe it becomes 30 minutes from the time you go in, to the time you go out, of the or. Complications are not very common if it is routine.

Ovarian cyst: Depending on the size of the ovarian cyst, if removed laparoscopically then an outpatient procedure should be planned.
Yes: Spotting is normal and common after surgery to remove an ovarian cyst. During the surgery usually an instrument is placed on the cervix so the uterus can be moved to get to the cyst, and that can cause a few days of light bleeding. Occasionally the stress of surgery can cause irregular bleeding.
It involves...: Making several tiny incisions on your abdomen to introduce a small scope/camera and small surgical instruments inside. The cyst is then separated from the ovary and taken out through one of the small incisions. Most people go home the same day, and the procedure generally takes about 60-90mins, depending on the size of the cyst. Hope this helps.
Usually laparoscopic: Most ovarian cystectomys or oophorectomies for benign cysts can and should be performed with minimally invasive surgery. Prior to the surgery, your evaluation should include an ultrasound and blood tests. An open surgery would only be needed if there is a high chance of an ovarian cancer.See 1 more doctor answer
