Prior to the removal of an ovarian cyst, your health care provider will give you a physical exam and examine the pelvic region. They will also conduct a review of medications, a urine test, and a blood test. They may do a CT scan and X-ray of the abdomen to confirm their diagnosis before considering ovarian cyst removal.
A surgeon will opt for either a laparoscopic surgery or an open surgery to remove the cyst. This generally depends on the state of the cyst and the views of the patient. However in some cases, where the cyst is large, there may not be an option and open surgery is needed.
In laparoscopic surgery, the surgeon makes a small incision in which to insert a thin tube called a LAPAROSCOPE. The tube is used to find the cyst and from there, the surgeon is able to remove the cyst.
To excise a particularly large cyst, the physician may need to perform a surgical procedure for ovarian cyst removal using general anesthesia. The patient may suffer some discomfort after the operation. Complications such as infection and bleeding may occur as well. The patient must recognize that further cysts may develop in the future. And, while it is rare, the patient may also become infertile and/or suffer clotting.
Should the surgeon find no sign of ovarian cancer during the procedure, then is can be relatively safe to say you will be back to normal within a week to two weeks after the operation. However, if ovarian cancer is found, it may be necessary to undergo further surgery to remove one or both ovaries or the decision may be taken to do it in the current procedure. With this completed then a course of ovarian cancer treatment would be required.
After the removal of an ovarian cyst, it is important to notify your doctor if you have a fever or chills, excessive pain or bleeding, shortness of breath, headaches, muscle aches, nausea, abdominal swelling, vomiting, or any other signs of ill health. An ovarian cyst removal, like all other surgeries, must be closely monitored post-surgery but in all likelihood will have no further complications.
This is why thousands of ladies are now looking for a holistic approach or natural treatment, combining lifestyle changes with scientific treatment to help cure their ovarian cyst. Holistic approach is the best treatment to completely eliminate the threat of having an ovarian cyst.
