After Fibroid Surgery

Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy – What Can You Expect After a Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy?

Many times, if a woman has been diagnosed with ovarian cysts, their doctor may not do anything other than ‘wait and see’ if the cyst either shrinks, or disappears completely within one to three months. Other times, a physician may prescribe birth control pills so that ovulation is prevented, attempting to alter the hormone levels so that the cyst will shrink without the need for a laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy. There may be times also, that the doctor will attempt to drain the fluid from the cyst using a needle.

However, after unsuccessfully trying one or more of these different treatments, a laparoscopic operation may need to be performed. Because women are always on the go, one of the first questions asked after being told that surgery is needed is…’how long until I am back to normal…what will the recovery be like?’

Every person is different as to what their particular experience will be like, but some of the more common occurrences within the first twenty four to seventy two hours may be:

~ pain near the incisions
~ nausea
~ dry, scratchy throat (from the anesthesia tube)
~ abdominal pain, possibly even cramping
~ bloated, distended feeling
~ tender navel area
~ vaginal bleeding, similar to a menstrual period
~ change in bowel habits
~ groggy, or more sleepy than usual

Laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy is still an operation, and therefore a patient should really expect to take it easy for a few weeks…at the very least, two. Heavy lifting should most definitely be avoided for the first two weeks. Some woman bounce back totally within a week, or so, but many woman report that they did not feel back to normal for a month after having the laparoscopic procedure.

About the author: Although Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy is an option to eliminating ovarian cysts, it should certainly NOT be the first treatment considered. There are natural remedies that are quite effective and should be explored before any surgery is planned.


Frequently Asked Questions

    how long can i get pregnant after fibroid surgery?
    how long do i need to wait to conceive after fibroid surgery

    • ANSWER:

    How long should a woman wait to conceive after having fibroid surgery?
    I have been diagnosed with a fibroid in my uterus wall. It is apparently in a bad place and the doctor wants to operate. I am trying to conceive my first child and am already 36 years old. How long will I need to recover from fibroid surgery before we can continue to try to conceive?

    • ANSWER:
      my doctor told me 6 months. after the surgery, ask your doctor b/c they will know how deeply they had to cut into your uterus to remove the fibroids. If it was deep, you may need to talk with them about your options b/c your uterus will be thin in those spots. you may not be able to carry your child to full term (c-section at 36 or 37 weeks). some women are able to conceive w/o any problems with their fibroids…some women have premature babies (i’ve known both types…i could not get pregnant with fibroids). make sure the surgery is the best option for you and PLEASE get a second opinion. one complication to surgery is excessive bleeding leading to hysterectomy. try to go for laparoscopic surgery if you can ( find the best surgeon in the state to perform the surgery.

      know what type of fibroid you have (i.e. pedunculated, submucous, etc.) and see how hard it is to conceive after having those fibroids removed. you now have to be proactive about this b/c some doctors push surgery when it may not be necessary.
