Re: Increased pmy symptoms since laprascopy
Didn't the surgeon come to see you after the lap in order to discuss what was seen ? This is what my doctor did.
As for the incisions, I was supposed to have a bellybutton one, one just above the pubic bone and two above (one on either side) ... just like you have. However, in my case, she managed to do it with one less incision so I just have one side incision and not two of them. A cystectomy is a bit more complicated to do than the entire removal of the ovary and tube (like I had .. due to a 9 cm cyst) so perhaps the four incisions were necessary in your case.
Your first few menstruations after surgery will be a bit screwy. During the surgery they put an instrument into your uterus in order to move it out of the way during the surgery. This will undoubtedly affect the first few periods. I know in my case it did and I had all kinds of clots and stuff coming out. Things settled down after the first few cycles though.
Your body has been through a bit of a traumatic experience so you have to be patient with it and take good care so that things will come back to normal. Eat wisely, get enough exercise, take a good multivitamin (or take a 500 mg vitamin C supplement, everyday) and try to reduce the stress as much as possible. I am sure that things will get back to normal very soon. You should definitely mention this to your doctor at your followup though along with any other issues you may be having post surgically.
