2nd surgery???????????

I just came from my 7 week appt. I have been having lower left
pain every since my surgery. The doctor left my left ovary and removed everything else. Now he says I need to have a 2nd surgery to remove the remaining ovary because it ended up too low next to my vagina. My first surgery was 7 Feb, next one is scheduled for 18 Apr. He is going to remove the ovary through my belly button. Has anyone ever had to have 2 surgeries???????? Anyone had a laproscope surgery that can share their experiences with me. I have to move by the end of May so I am hoping I will be well. I really regret not having everything removed the first time )-:

Sorry you are having pain....s are on the way to you!!

As for the laproscopic surgery to remove the ovary...the doctor inserts the "scope" through an incision made near the belly button. The abdomen is infiltrated with gas to expand it so the doctor can see the pelvic region. Then, a small incision is made near the area he will remove the ovary through.

This is a very basis description. If you want to find more info you will can find it by doing a search. Or, perhaps a sister will come along with a web-site link for you.

Good luck to you and best wishes too..s

2nd surgery???????????


First off, Big s, I am so sorry you are having to head back to the castle. Lots of ladies on the Road have had to go back for more surgery for one reason or another. I had to go back to the castle just recently for adhesion removal which I had done lapro. the initial recovery in my opinion is much easier than the large incision type surgery(I had 3-c-sections so I can compare). I had to have a small incision in the belly button, and two small ones right above the hairline. Small as in under an inch, my external healing was very quick, incision were completely healed at 2 week post op appt. You still experience post op symptoms like tiredness, some pain, etc.

You also might want to visit the Hormone Jungle/No-hormone Desert Forums to get info concerning the use of HRT or not etc. they have some great info over there.

I would definitely recruit some extra help for your move in May, in sounds like you will be a little of 4 wks post op so you will need support. I still find I get that exhaustion feeling even now at approx 5 wks. post op(everyone is different), I just read a sister thought that has hit home for me... Hope for the best and be prepared for the worst. That's us ladies! preparation is our forte
I would also take into consideration that you have just been through major surgery so having the second one closely behind could lengthen this recovery.

Please keep us posted and let us know how you are feeling. You can email [email protected] with your surgery date to be added to the Road Calendar(first thread on this forum).
