Steps to take before Lap Ovarian Cystectomy
Any surgical procedure can be scary and uncomfortable, but our doctors at Medanta will ensure that you are utmost comfortable and in good health to undergo the procedure.
What happens during the treatment?
This procedure is performed under general anaesthesia and requires a small incision (made below the navel), and a large surgical incision (made above the pubic bone).Through the small incision, the laparoscope is put into the pelvic region and abdomen. The surgeon will identify the cyst with the assistance of the camera attached on the laparoscope. Then the cyst will be removed through the large surgical cut.
After Lap Ovarian Cystectomy
After the surgery, the patient is most likely to resume normal activities within a day. Your doctor may advise you a few medications and may ask you to avoid strenuous activity or exercise for about a week. The hospital stay after the surgery is about 2-4 days, and the recovery period is up to 2 weeks.
