I had laparoscopic surgery on thursday because of a cyst on my left ovary. My OBGYN also cut down alot of lessions from my hysterectomy 5 years ago. I understand that he sent the cyst to pathology, when should I find out if it is ovarian cancer or not? What can I do about the swelling in my stomach? It is not from the gas it is from being cut into!
it usually takes a week to get the pathology report back.
with laparoscopy, carbon dioxide gas is put in the abdomen to distend the abdomen. It takes about two weeks to stop feeling bloated
