ovarian cyst anyone?

Am new here,in fact have never taken part in a forum before
so please forgive any mistakes! I am scheduled for a TAH
on 17th April and am having both tubes,ovaries and cervix
removed too. I have been told that because of the size of
my ovarian cyst ( a massive 22 weeks sized one!!)I will be
having a vertical incision that they will close with clips.
I am terrified to say the least and wondering what type of knickers to take, am I better with over or under the scar ones?I'm also worried about the anti-coagulant injection
into the tummy as I look like a balloon (I am a UK size 8)and
don't have any spare skin left to get the needle into,has
anyone else been in this predicament?
Any advice or words of comfort would be greatly appreciated.

I've have a long history with ovarian cysts (for about 17 years now, since I was 17 years old)

I will be having my remaining ovary taken tomorrow with my uterus. I have 3 cysts on it.

I am not much help about the injection you will have. I hope someone on here can help you.

TWIGLET: Hi, I would wear the knickers one size larger and above the incision....(big granny panties, we call them), about the injection, I got mine put thru the IV, maybe its a hospital procedure, ask the nurse at your pre-op visit.
try to relax, the hospital staff are very nice and are willing to help you go thru this as smooth as possible.
