Spotting is quite normal for a couple of weeks maybe.. but 10 weeks? You should see your doctor about it. I was only spotting for about a week after my surgery and it was quite fresh clots. Yes tmi, but you asked! My periods became quite irregular after my surgery, some periods were just 2 weeks of spotting, sometimes I spot between periods, so that could be...

Im sorry to hear your pain is getting worse. I hope your surgeon can shed some light on it. I had laparotomy with one ovary removed and the other ovary wasnt touched. I was told prior to my surgery that the ovary operated on could cause pain, but since mine had to be removed I didnt have that problem. However the bladder part sounds annoyingly familiar. My...

Im sorry to hear you are suffering that much with hormonal issues. I am 23 years and now 8 months post op after having an ovary + cyst removed (luckily I have only had the one surgery). It is very normal for surgery to affect your hormones and cycle. I had my hormones tested, but apparently everything was normal.. The first 5 months my periods were irregula...

In case you didnt find ALL the symptoms, I can confirm everything, even the rib pain and diahrea are normal for cysts. You should feel much better once the cyst is dealt with. Good luck with your surgery.

It should be possible to get non synthetic ones though, but still, keeping...

Im sorry you have to go though this. Ill try to answer your questions. 1: I assume you are referring to the surgery not general ovarian cyst pain? When you first wake up from the anaesthetics , you shouldnt be in much pain, most women are ok until the next morning when the anaesthetics has worn off properly. Prepare yourself for the first time you are made...

Does it feel more like the muscle than the ovary? I dont think you are supposed to be able to feel the ovary or cysts unless they reach a decent size. I dont know how your surgeon done your operation, but I was told they dont cut muscles any more, so there should be no stitches at your side (I think). They do cut the tendon part of one layer of stomach muscl...
