I need surgery. It will be at some point this month - possibly as early as this week. I have a 5 cm cyst on my left ovary, which is enlarged (ovaries typically have a volume of 5-15 ml and my left ovary has a volume of 130 ml).
Here's a nice snapshot of my left ovary, with Boris the Cyst:
I have no idea yet what the surgery will entail. If it will be another lap or if they will take out the ovary. We are going to try desperately to convince them to remove it all together. If not, I will certainly ask for testing of the tissue and the cyst.
That's all I know for now.
