Hi, I am a 34 year old female. I had a 4.5 cm benign dermoid cyst removed during csection. Even though the gynaecologist assured me that it would be a cystectomy (unless it's complicated). He billed me for cystectomy or salpingectomy oophorectomy, omentectomy a week before the planned cSection date. I assumed it's the medical name of the surgery. The surgery was done after csection delivery of my baby and I was awake the whole time he performed the surgery. After surgery he said the cyst was enlarged and he removed my ovary and tube and that I can still have babies because of my other ovary, I am shocked, I look up the meaning of salpingo oophorectomy and the surgery he planned indeed was removal of tube and ovary. He didnot give any explanation as to why he did remove my ovary or why he did the omentectomy. Has anyone had any similar experience? I have only had an ultrasound scan, which was normal. I didnot have any pain due to cyst and has had it for 6 years, since my gp suggested 'wait and watch' since it didn't change size. No other tests were ordered by the gynaecologist and no history of cancer. Please help.
