Can surgery after a ovarian cyst removal be too tight?

Surgery: I am unsure as to what you mean by too tight. If you are feeling pains in your skin, they are most likely rude to true stitches below your skin. If you are feeling pain on the inside, then that is from scar tissue.

Is ovarian cyst removal surgery an inpatient or outpatient procedure now?

Ovarian cysts: Most ovarian cysts can be removed laparoscopically which is an outpatient procedure. It is nowadays unusual to have to be inpatient for this. This obviously depends on the expertise of your surgeon. Advanced gynecological laparoscopists rarely have to perform a laparotomy (open surgery) for ovarian cyst removal. Davinci robot-assistance may facilitate a minimally invasive approach.

Ovarian cyst removal im 20 years old and after my surgery it was hard for me to breath the next day why?

Ovarian cyst removal im 20 years old and after my surgery it was hard for me to breath the next day why?

Possibilities...: Smoking and surgery are a bad mix and can certainly cause breathing problems. Atelectasis is a term used to describe the temporary collapse of small areas in the lungs seen after general anesthesia & abdominal surgery; this will clear up on its own. If your surgery was laparoscopic, the distention of the abdomen w/co2 can put pressure on the diaphragm & cause shortness of breath.

Two weeks after an ovarian cyst removal surgery, is it normal to feel the urge to pee more frequently?

No: Likely during surgery a catheter was used to drain your bladder. In 10-20% of cases a low grade bladder infection could cause such frequency symptoms. The incision and surgical wound could also give similar symptoms? Might need some antibiotics. A urine culture could sort this out.

Is it possible an ovarian cyst can cause a false negative on a hpt ten years ago I had horrible cysts 2 ruptured and I had emergency surgery to stop internal bleeding. I am now 7 days late

Is it possible an ovarian cyst can cause a false negative on a hpt ten years ago I had horrible cysts 2 ruptured and I had emergency surgery to stop internal bleeding. I am now 7 days late

An: An ovarian cyst should not cause a false negative on a hpt, however there are other causes. These includs: testing too early error when performing the test not reading the result when directed, i.e. Waiting too long to read the result my advice would be to repeat the test if your period does not start in another week or so, or you can have one done in your doctor's office sooner. Good luck.

How long do I have to take pill after endo and ovarian cyst removal? My doc said until pregnant, but no plan to have kids. When is best time to stop?

4-6 months: It is a treatment that you may want to continue to both suppress future ovarian cysts and endometriosis, not only birth control. Usually 4-6 months continuously low estrogen and progesterone. If you have high blood pressure or develop it or smoke, you will need closer monitoring. Always best to stop smoking if you do. No assumptions made, though.

Where can you get a free ovarian cyst removal?

Where can you get a free ovarian cyst removal?

May not need removal: The vast majority of ovarian cysts during reproductive life come and go on their own. There are various types of physiologic cysts like this. If it is a dermoid cyst or a benign tumor, it may need to be removed surgically. Rarely a malignant cystic tumor can be the problem, requiring surgery. Its extremely important to determine what it is, as best as possible, before deciding about removal.

Has anyone ever had trouble with pain months after an ovarian cyst removal?

Yes: During reproductive age cysts are very common. Most women would have something considered a cyst at least once per year but would never know unless an x-ray test was performed due to pain. Often though the pain is completely separate from the cyst. The follicle (a cyst) that is the growing egg each month grows to 2-3 cm and ruptures each month. Cyst rupture is normal! Cysts unusually cause pain.

How quickly after ovarian cyst removal can I expect to get pregnant?

How quickly after ovarian cyst removal can I expect to get pregnant?

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.

Before undergoing my ovarian cyst removal operation doctors are asking to take contrast scan. Please can you tell me why & how that scan be taken?

CT scan: If a cyst is not a simple cyst, sometimes docs will do a ct scan of the pelvis to try to determine ahead of time the nature of the problem. Ovarian cancer is highly unusual in a girl your age, but borderline tumors can occur and having a gyn oncologist available can be important.
