I learned last Thursday that I have a large ovarian cyst and removal is scheduled this coming Friday. It’s all happened so quick I’m having a hard time processing. I’m 46 yo, past menopause and had no symptoms prior to discovering a large bulge in my lower abdomen. I haven’t spoken to the surgeon and don’t see him until Pre-Op this week so I don’t know what to expect.
Is surgery inpatient it outpatient? (don’t know exact size other than it’s large. It’s at least the size of my hand)
What is the recovery time? How much time needs to be taken off work? If given the opportunity to work from home, is that a possibility?
How big is incision?
Did anyone notice dark circles, weight gain, fatigue and thinning hair prior to diagnosis? I thought it was age setting in but now I wonder if related. Thanks in advance... I’m on pins and needles so any info would be so helpful!!!
