What questions did you ask your surgeon before Laparoscopy?

What questions did you ask your surgeon before Laparoscopy?

I do have a fairly lengthy list, but want to make sure I'm asking everything I might possibly need or want to know at my pre-op.

Thanks in advance!

Just wondering if anyone else has also been told this? He also mentioned going back in 4 months not too sure if that would be for more surgery I was still a bit out of it… read more

Pain after surgery

Pain after surgery

I had laparoscopic surgery about a week and a half ago, and I still cannot pee without being in terrible pain. It doesn’t feel like a UTI to me; it’s a pain that starts around my bellybutton and then kind of fans outward from there and lasts a few minutes. But it’s bad enough that I can’t stand or breathe very well. I did call my surgeon, but he wasn’t available and the nurse I talked to told me not to worry about it. But I’m worrying anyway. Have any of you ever experienced anything like… read more

I had pain, but only for 2-3 days after at the most. I would call again if you don't feel like it is improving.

Letrozole for both endometriosis and ovarian cysts?

Letrozole for both endometriosis and ovarian cysts?

I currently have the Mirena, which was placed after my laparoscopy in January. Birth control pills were stopped at this time (I was suffering terribly despite taking them leading up to the surgery). I am now dealing with multiple ovarian cysts. I had an extremely painful episode last month which they concluded was most likely a hemorrhagic cyst, and now I have an even bigger cyst that is going to rupture at some point. I go for another follow-up ultrasound in a… read more

Surgery

Surgery

Any advice for a laparotomy? I have kissing ovaries and the cysts are too big for laparoscopic surgery. I was wondering if anyone had recommendations for what to take or wear or what to avoid? I’m scheduled for next Monday. Thanks!
