The ovarian cyst of 8 cm is large and will need removal. The pain is most likely because of it. The surgery is simple and can also be done via laparoscopy. Post operative recovery is also good. In the meantime you can take pain killers to help with the pain. The bloating and fullness after meals is due to gastritis. This can be aggravated by stress. Antacids and a bland diet will help. Discuss with your Doctor.
Hope this helps.
THANK YOU SO MUCH !
My doctor said once I'm done with surgery I have to stay in the hospital for 1-2 days. But for recovering at home , how long does it take to get back in good shape ? Cuhz my family is going different places ( camping , hiking , disneyland etc ) this July . But will able to join them , or have to stay home ?
