Ovarian Cysts

I had laporscopy surgery 2 weeks ago, I had a cyst on my right side, which was removed, a cyst on my left which was removed along with my ovary and Fallopian tube. For the last 2 weeks I've been having pains in my lower abdomin which will happen just out of nowhere. It seems to rip thru like a knife. Doesn't last long. Maybe 5 seconds. Also sitting isn't the easiest cause it feels like everything is getting pushed up into me. Is this part of the healing process because of all the trauma my body has gone thru? Things just figuring out where they now belong ?

Welcome to the community. I am sorry you had to undergo this surgery. You are still early post-op so if the pain is not constant and/or severe, I would chalk it up to being within the realm of normal.  Since your surgery was done laparoscopically, some (or all) of the pain could be from the gas they use to inflate the abdominal cavity to improve the surgeon's visual field. Your pain should be gradually subsiding in the days ahead. If it does not or gets worse, you should call your surgeon. Don't hesitate to follow your surgeon's orders on pain medications for relief...no need to suffer needlessly.

Thanks for answering me. I'm thinking it's possibly gas pains. Today has been one of the easiest days. Definitely taking it easy. I have been walking some and that seems to be helping
