I'm so discouraged!

Well I am just shy of my 1 year anniversary and I went back to my Dr for abdominal pain. First off let me say that I had to have my gall bladder taken out 6 months after my hyst and since then things have not been the same. Anyways, I was told that since I was keeping my ovaries that I COULD possible get endo and adhesions back which is what he thinks is going on now. The only way to tell obviously is to scope and look in there which is something the surgeon that did my gall bladder surgery could have done but wouldn't . Now my options are to wait and take pain as long as I can......or do the scope with the possibility that he will open me up to remove my ovaries because that would be the only way to stop all of this from happening! Does anyone have any of this going on? Meanwhile I am still suffering from upper ab pain that has to related to my gall bladder surgery but they think it's hyst related! SO I'm being tossed around again! I cannot go through another surgery........

Hi Terri,

I am sorry to hear that you are having some problems.

Unfortunately sometimes the only way to see exactly what is going on is by having lapraoscopic surgery.

I had my right ovary removed lapraoscopically 9 weeks ago. I started having problems with cysts and pain about 9 months ago. I was having horrible pain with intercourse and bowel movements. My doctor had been watching the cysts for any changes - they had gotten larger and turned from simple, fluid-filled cysts to complex, solid-mass cysts. My doctor said when a cyst begins to change in size and appearance (complex & solid) it needs to be evaluated surgically. My surgery was done laparoscopically. The right ovary was adhered to the top of the vaginal cuff and covered with adhesions and cysts - it was removed. My left ovary had some fluid filled cysts that were drained and then the ovary was wrapped in mesh to protect it. I also had many adhesions removed that were attached to my bladder, bowel, colon, and liver.

Keep us posted on how you are doing.
