Dr. Dimple Doshi at Vardaan Hospital; believes prevention is better than cure, and thus apart from the precise treatment guidelines; preventive measures are an essential part of our consultations with the patients who have either had it or want to know more about it.

  1. If the cyst is big in size
  2. If the cyst has the potential to turn malignant in future
  3. If the cyst has solid components like a dermoid cyst
  4. If the cyst is giving pain and dragging discomfort to you.
  1. You will be asked to carry all your investigation reports which include your complete blood count; liver, thyroid; kidney function tests and other preoperative tests, and the x-ray chest.
  2. You will be asked to be on a light diet a day prior to surgery especially to avoid milk and milk products as they bloat your stomach.
  3. You will be asked to stop the medications like estrogen-containing medicines a month prior to surgery and also blood thinners like aspirin at least a week prior to surgery. At the same time you will be asked to continue your thyroid; blood pressure and diabetes medications.
  4. You will be asked to report any signs of illness in case you have it prior to surgery.
  5. A night prior to surgery you will be given bowel cleansing solutions so that on the day of surgery you are not bloated and this makes your surgery and recovery easier
  1. This procedure is done under general anesthesia in the operating room.
  2. A small incision is placed around your umbilicus and through this your abdomen is inflated with Co2 gas and then a fiberoptic telescope is introduced and all abdominal organs are inspected.
  3. 2 or 3 more such tiny incisions are placed on the abdomen through which other tiny laparoscopic instruments are inserted.
  4. The ovarian cyst is inspected. Your gynecologists will always try to minimize the spillage of the cyst contents inside the abdomen and try to place the cyst inside a bag called an endobag and then remove it intact and puncturing it outside the abdominal cavity so that your inside of the abdomen is not contaminated with cyst contents. Sometimes it may be necessary to aspirate the cyst if its too big. In that case; the cyst is ruptured inside the endobag and it is removed after its complete deflation. Your gynecologists will try to remove the entire cyst wall without keeping its residues inside to prevent it from developing again. Almost all cysts can be cleared off their cyst walls completely barring a few exceptions like chocolate cysts.
  5. If the need be in rare cases complete removal of the ovary with the cyst may be advised due to reasons like cancer potential; infection or bleeding. And your gynecologists will guide you about it.
  • You will be in the recovery room for 2 hrs after you wake up from anesthesia. You may feel sleepy for next few hours after which you will be shifted to your room.
  • You may have mild pain in your shoulder or back which is because of the gas used in surgery but it will subside in a day or two.
  • You may have some discomfort in the area or you may feel tired for a few days after the procedure but with each passing day you feel better.
  • Contact your doctor immediately if pain does not go away or if it is associated with nausea and vomiting or any other problems.
