surgery is set

I'm having surgery tomorrow morning. It's another lap, and the doctor will remove the cyst. He'll also examine the ovary. I will make it clear prior to surgery that I prefer for the ovary to be removed, but I have no idea if that's in his mind or not. I haven't spoken to him.

This is all happening so fast.

Less than 20 hours and counting.

Good luck! Will you be able to have keyhole or is there a chance you'll need traditional surgery?

I really hope you're ok. Having surgery is not at all pleasant - you're in my thoughts.

I just started following your blog and that cyst looks all too familiar. I had a laparoscopy surgery (#2) about 10 days ago to remove a cyst. It looked exactly the same on the ultrasound and it happened to be on my left tube, not my ovary like it looked.

Last time (Oct 2010) my RE drained it, but it came back like 2 months later. This time he completely removed the tissue. When he got inside the cyst he found there was a tumor that had grown from my ovary. It was benign, but I ended up losing my left tube. I can't wait to have another ultrasound and not see that HUGE dark mass. Every one I've ever had has shown it. It got to 8 cm at one point, but I was completely asymptomatic. It sounds like you have had a lot of pain which really stinks.

Best of luck for your surgery. I am already feeling so much better and it hasn't been much time. I hope you recover quickly!
