I'm 22 years old and I had a 10 cm dermoid cyst (tumor) and my right ovary removed on November 30th. I was in the hospital for 2 days. I had a very speedy recovery and most of the pain has gone away. I have a six inch incision that is mostly healed, but tender at the touch. Its been four weeks and everything has been going pretty well. For about two days I've been having gas and bloating, and so now i'm starting to feel discomfort on the side where everything was removed. It's only a mild pain, and nothing compared to the pain I felt when I first found out about this tumor. I am only paranoid, because I never had any symptoms for a dermoid cyst. This was a major surgery and healing on the inside takes way longer than it does to heal from the outside. So I get that I am going to be sensitive for a couple of months with any type of discomfort in that area.
Has anyone else experienced this? How was your healing process??? Please help I just need some peace of mind!!!!
