Recovery from a unilateral oophorectomy
I had a unilateral oophorectomy on November 27, 2018 and I am in pain in my pelvic area on the right side. The surgery was to remove a large cyst. This was done laproscopically and I thought I would be almost recovered by now. It has been 5 weeks. A section of my small intestine was affixed to the right abdominal wall and the doctor fixed that. I now have pain in my right side that comes from my pelvic area and goes down into my thigh. I feel a burning sensation and puffiness in my right abdomen. I am supposed to see the doctor next week. I am concerned that this could be abdominal adhesions or nerve damage. I am not sure if what Is happening normal or not normal. I have spoken to the nurses at the doctor's office but she does not seem concerned. I am concerned and I am not sure if this is normal or not. Has anyone else had complications after an oophorectomy? This surgery was done in Tallahassee. I am regretting having the surgery. I am in worse pain now than I was before.
