I have now learned that my right ovary has a 10 cm cyst and my doctor informed me that I needed to have surgery , the sooner the better (he says). I am so scared. He says that he will have the urologist there to put in stints so he does not touch my bladder. Had a horrible experince couple years ago. I told him that in Jan. would be ok and he is trying to get me to do it sooner. And he said he will just take the ovary too, why not the other one too?? It has a cyst on it, but not as big but why not just take them both so I dont have to do this ever again.(Had a partial hysterctomy already) What I need to know is how bad will this be, I already have a huge scar which he wont touch, too much scar tissue. I already know about the horrible pain in the shoulder. This is coming up soon and I am horrified that something once again will go wrong.
