left side pain

Dear Heather,

I had a laparascopic RSO... he did have to make a slightly bigger incision lower down... maybe 1inch. It was not that much different than a regular lap which I had had before.

Best wishes for a successful outcome. keep us posted.

My understanding from my doctor is that if they had taken the ovaries out, it would have been laparoscopically through a small incision on either side, if at all possible. If your ovaries are encased in scar tissue or just plain hard to get to, then they may have to do the laparotomy (larger abdominal incision).

Give your dr's office a call, if that would ease your mind. This is a very good question. You should know (at least the range of) what to expect.

Hope it goes well for you. I am back almost at full speed a week and a day after my lap to remove scar tissue.
