Hello everyone. I found this site while googling about the surgery I had done yesterday. I had a removal of a dermoid cyst that had grown up to 13 cms in a year and the doctor told me it was the biggest one she had every seen. It completely destroyed my left ovary and ovarian tube and was even wrapped around my colon causing severe, excruciating pain. I found it by a trip to the ER on Thursday and had the surgery done on Monday, it is now Wednesday and i am worrying about everything. I am only 22, with a history of chronic illnesses. I've looked through this site and it seems that most of you who have had surgery had much smaller cysts. Did anyone else have to have c section like surgery ? The did the laparoscopy but also had to cut open the muscles and stuff to really get it out. I've been up and walking today and actually just went to the bathroom by myself for the first time but I am a worrier by nature. Any one have any advice? Or smilie stories ? All would be appreciated. Thank you
Also is it normal for it to be numb around my stomach? What kind of soap should I use while showering? How long before I need to worry about going to the bathroom (#2) I've been taking tons of mirilax and stool softeners but I'm constipated by nature and have been taking pain killers. I have so many questions and can't be calling my doctor every 5 seconds. I posted on here lash night and haven't had any responses.
