I am 21 years old and about a month ago I was diagnosed with 2 dermoid cysts. Well, one they know is a dermoid before and they said the other could be filled of blood. I have a 10cm one on my right ovary, and a 8cm one on my left ovary. I am scheduled to go into surgery December 21. The doctor said he will try to do the laposcropy surgery but he may have to do the abdominal one.. He doesn't know until he goes in on the day of surgery. Also.. He kept repeating to me "if I could save you're ovaries I will"
What's the chance of me having the abdominal surgery? What's the chance of me losing one or both my ovaries? How is the recovery for each? Please if you could share as much information with me as possible I am terrified since all the decisions of my surgery will be made while I am asleep.
