I had chocolate cysts, endometriosis and tumor on my right ovary and it was removed during laparoscopy almost 8 years ago. Since then I was on Yasmin birth control pills, had a punctuation and was on Zoladex shots for sih months in order to save my left ovary, because I have cysts and endometriosis on it too. I stopped taking Yasmin pills year and a half ago in order to TTC, but nothing happened, so I wanted to try insemination, but my gyno said that I had one formal cyst and one endometric cyst and they are big, so the next step he sais is laparotomy and than In Vitro procedure.
So, my question is: Has anyone had experience with this kind of laparotomy, what kind of procedure is it and what about the healing process?
H, sorry to hear of your situation! Though I don't have experience with the types of cysts, I did recently undergo a laparotomy to remove a large tumor, ovary, omentum, fal tube, tissue etc.
I had a verticle incision from about 1 inch above my naval down to the pubic bone.
I noted some tips under a few posts that may be helpful?
Look under "Operation tomorrow - eek"
