Kind of a shot in the dark, but I figured I'd ask. I have a quite large (16x12x10cm) ovarian cyst or endometrioma (doc says it's a 50/50 chance it's either) and am currently in a waiting period between ultrasounds (5 weeks) to make sure it doesn't start to go down on its own. Honestly, 2 weeks in I don't think it's going anywhere so I'm starting to get my ducks in a row in terms of getting it removed.
2 questions -
1) does anyone have a recommendation of which hospital I should choose for the surgery? The closest to me is Providence in Everett but I am willing to travel to have a good experience. I had a very rough postpartum experience with very poor nursing care in NYC so am very hospital shy.
2) any clue whether a cyst this size could be removed via laparoscopy?
