The best you can do is be aware of the symptoms and present immediately for care if they occur so you can get the ultrasound +/- CT scan if needed.

If your surgery was laparoscopic, the distention of the abdomen w/co2 can put pressure on the diaphragm & cause shortness of breath. ...Read more

I have a cyst in my fallopian tube 5.5 CM I am 21 do I need surgery?

I have a cyst in my fallopian tube 5.5 CM I am 21 do I need surgery?

Probably: This is not a definte yes or no case. You can make an argument to simply follow this with watchful waiting without surgery if it gets no bigger and has no symptoms. However, I would guess that 95% of the time if this is truly a tubal cyst, you will end up with surgery due to pain. If this is an ovarian cyst, you have a little better chance of avoiding surgery because ovarian cysts can come and go. ...Read more

This hydrosalpinx (swollen tube), while not necessarily dangerous, will not likely resolve on its own but will need removal which will tell us if it is truly nothing to worry about. Tubal cancers are very rare however we can never be certain until the tube is out. You have a LOT of structures in your pelvis and to make sure this is indeed a tube, your gyno's help is required! ...Read more
