16:18 - 13 May , 2021

Medical procedure



It refers to the surgery where one or more ovarian cysts are removed. In many cases, after its removal, the cyst is sent to a laboratory to analyze its origin.

Before the procedure:

Before surgery, it will be essential that your doctor performs an ultrasound to locate the cyst and evaluate if the procedure is necessary. 

It is important that you follow your doctor’s instructions regarding prior care, fasting, and precautions.

Potential risks:

  • Bleeding.
  • Infections.
  • Injury to the uterus.
  • Intestinal damage.

After the procedure:

An ovarian cyst resection is an intervention that requires general anesthesia. It usually lasts for a maximum of two and a half hours, while recovery requires a hospital stay of a couple of days.

It will be important that you get enough rest, that you do not make great efforts, and that you get up only a couple of times a day for a short time. You could have pain or some minor discomfort that will soon disappear.
