laproscopic surgery done on tues.

Well i had the lap done. He tells us that the cyst was gone from the right ovary. There is small amounts of adhesion, he says nothing to worry about. Also he tells me that I have a vaginal nodule, whatever that is, my husband said he thought he told him is was near the bowel so I have to wait when i see him for follow up. He did tell my husband that i needed to have a nother vaginal ultrasound to chaeck it out. He also said that I have alot of gas??? How do they know that from lap. So now I have to wait. What i cant understand is how can I be told that i have a complex ovarian cyst that will not go away on its own and yet he gets in there and it is gone. Was it the nodule that they saw on ultrasound??? Overall I feel pretty good my shoulder and chest are very painful but that should go away soon I hope. Has anyone on this site ever had a vaginal nodule and what is it? thanks

Hey Shel35:

I wanted to answer your question of 'How can they tell you have gas?' Your bowel will be distended (swollen) and they can see if there is solid matter in there or gas. For me, anytime I am nervous, I have gas and that would defintely include surgery. That might not be a significant finding.

Also, on the issue of the complex cyst that turned out to probably be a functional cyst .... it takes really great ultrasound equipment and a very skilled person interpreting the test to differentiate between complex and functional cysts. Functional cysts are a result of the ovulation process and can go away. Complex cysts such as dermoid cycsts or endometriomas do not disappear and have to surgically removed.

I'm wondering ...did he remove the adhesions? Question to ask is where were the adhesions located so that you can understand his comment about them being nothing to worry about. Everyone has some scar tissue and some of it is not troublesome. If its not restricting or immobilizing any of your tissues then it is likely not to be causing your pain.

Hopefully he will have video of the procedure or at least color photos. Please keep us posted. We care.
