Surgery again,Question about recovery time

HI all,
Well I am scheduled for surgery on August 5th to have both of my ovaries removed due to cysts, and also my tubes removed. I had the rest removed almost 3 years ago. They are planning on going by lap, unless they find cancer which runs in my family.
How long recovery time am I looking at if anyone can tell me. Thank you.

Surgery again,Question about recovery time

Your recovery time will probably depend on how much work the doctor has to do once he gets in there. Many years before my hyst I had the right ovary removed via laproscope and I ended up spending the night in the hospital and took a few days off of work. Most of my coworkers were surprised that I returned to work so soon. I got the feeling that I should've taken more time off, but my doctor really never said and I never thought to ask.

Flash forward a few years and I had the left ovary and fallopian tube removed. This was a day surgery and again I took a few days off. In hindsight, had I known than what I know now I would have taken more time off.

After the hyst I had an incision revision and neuroma removal and I had strict orders from my doc not to drive for at least a week and I wasn't to return to work until he had a chance to see me. This was done via a day surgery.

Please check with your and find out what he/she wants you to do. Best wishes on the surgery.
