Ovarian hemangiomate - cyst. I am seeking advise for optimizing the Mayo experience - traveling 7 hours from home.

Posted by @tlc, Mar 11, 2012

I don’t know what to expect. I have been told I need an ovary removed. I am going to Mayo to have the procedure if they agree with the recommendation for removal.

25 years ago I went to Mayo, was evaluated and scheduled for surgery. If anyone would care to share their experience with Mayo, i would feel more confident in planning my upcoming appointment at Mayo. I wonder if I can expect to have the surgery when I get there – or will they have me return at a later date. i.e., do they still help expedite the patients so they do not have to travel back and forth when living out of state? If anyone had the same situation, I sure would like to hear about their experience.

I am interested in recommendations for lodging? Is there shuttle service to the clinic? I sure would like to have an idea of how this will proceed before I go in two weeks. 🙂 thank you
