Hi! I had an abdominal hysterectomy w/ removal of right tube and ovary in 9/02. Due to unexplained right side pain I had a CT scan which found a large complex cyst/mass on my remaining left ovary. We have tried hormones, waiting etc and now I am scheduled for surgery for 2/6. My doctor is going to try and go in as laproscopic surgery but can not be sure she won;t have to do another abdominal one due to scar tissue. Just wondered if anyone else that has had an abdominal surgery was able to then have laproscopic? I have also had two prior laproscopic surgerys before the hysterectomy.

Hi Sleepfree

There are lots of posts on here about ladies having procedures done laparoscopically after their hysts. As you mention, I think it depends a lot on the state of the ovary, and how much scar tissue, etc. they run into - not something they can really tell until they get in there.
Hopefully some ladies who have had successful post hyst laps will be along soon to help ease your mind.
Good luck.
