Ovarian cyst removal is a surgical procedure that is used to remove cysts from the ovaries when they have become too big or are sometimes thought to be, or are, cancerous. A cyst is a sac filled with fluid that can form and attach to the ovaries. There are two different kinds of cysts, which are called functional cysts and pathological cysts. Functional cysts occur in women who have not yet been through the menopause; these are usually fairly harmless and non-cancerous and can often go away without requiring any treatment. If you consulted a doctor such as Dr. Victoria J Mondloch in her surgery in Waukesha, in the state of Wisconsin she would explain this to you.
A pathological cyst in comparison can develop either pre or post menopause and is caused by abnormal cell growth, these can be cancerous or non-cancerous and will sometimes need surgery to remove them.
Sometimes the cysts will cause symptoms such as bloating and pain in your pelvis. Sometimes you may need to urinate frequently and occasionally you may be in pain when passing a bowel movement. All of these symptoms will be explained by your Doctor and if any medication is required or pain relief this can be discussed and prescribed as required
Endometriosis or polycystic ovary syndrome can lead to the development of ovarian cysts and doctors such as Victoria Mondloch will do what is called watchful waiting. This is monitoring the cyst and it progress as it could just go away. If or when it gets too large your doctor, such as Victoria J Mondloch will explain the next steps and will confirm your options to you.
Laparoscopic or keyhole surgery is the preferred method for removal of any cysts. This kind of surgery is much less invasive, there is much less chance of infection and recovery time is much improved as is the actual time that the operation takes. The operation should take an hour or two at most. A doctor such as Dr. Victoria J Mondloch in her surgery in Waukesha, in the state of Wisconsin will then explain to you what you should do after your operation.
There may be possible discomfort in the days after the surgery and you will be prescribed pain relief medication. The recovery time is about two weeks from laparoscopic surgery. If for some reason you do have to have open surgery, which is getting less and less common this day and age then the recovery time can be a lot longer and it can take six weeks for you to feel relatively normal and maybe a couple more weeks for you to get back to work and your normal self. It will be a few months again before you should do any heavy lifting or strenuous exercise. Your doctor will explain everything to you and will be on hand for any advice through your recovery.
