You gals were right (of course)....I went back for my scan on my ovarian cyst and it is even bigger and needs to come out.
Gyn said it is wedged between my stomach and front of uterus and she fears it will fall & twist.
Anyhoo - due to additional issues, decision was made to remove uterus/cervix, cyst and that one ovary (if it is even still alive in there)...leaving the other ovary.
I went online to read about it and people's experiences/recovery. Sometimes that may be a mistake to look online
Anyone want to share their recovery times? I read everything from "No problem - no painkillers and back to work in 5 days..." to "OMG - worst pain ever! Still down & out at 6 weeks"
They are going to try to do laproscopic assisted, uterus via vagina removal.
Thanks again for your help!
