Hi, Welcome to Health care magic forum.
As the surgery is an emergency surgery, means the cyst in a serius condition, so it has ruptured and spill along the peritoneum, caused peritonitis.
The present pain could be due to the gastric irritation,due to the tablets of the surgery, irritant foods, or alcohol etc.
I usually prescribe to my patient with such symptoms omeprazole, domperidone, and anaesthetic antacid gel.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery.Thank you.

Hi About 3 years ago a really large dermoid cyst was discovered on my right ovary. I had it removed and the surgeon left some remnants of my right ovary there. 3 years later I m married and have been trying for a baby for almost 8 months now and nothing. When I went for a check up it turns out I have another dermoid on the remnant of ovary. I am 28 and no other health concerns, of good BMI. My question is is this cyst interfering with my fertility? Should I risk a second surgery or is there anything I can do to help get pregnant. When I asked my gyn/obs he just said no it wont effect your fertility. (I have also had my tubes tested and husbands sperm tested too) Any insights or advice/info would be really really appreciated.

I am 41. I am going in for my 8th laparoscopy tomorrow for yet another painful ovarian complex cyst. This time my Dr. has suggested the removal of this ovary. My last cyst was removed 18 months ago. I lost my left ovary to a large dermoid cyst in 2009. Heading into surgical menopause makes me nervous. I know how my body reacts to a laparoscopy, but how will I feel if I am thrown into menopause? Do I just have the surgery and remove the ovary, to do it again in another 18 months, or just take out my last ovary now and move one. I am so confused.

I have clear fluid like water coming from my vagina-not urethra. I can not feel it happen and only notice when I stand up and see a wet spot on a chair or clothing. There is no odor, pain, itching, color...clear and the same consistency as water. This has happened once before when I did NOT have my period. I have endomitriosis and have had my menstrual cycle since 6/13...the past 4 days with fever, nausea, swollen gums and diarrhea-all normal for me during a bad endo phase. Probably unrelated, but I have a Primary Immune Disorder, CVID Ocular Sarcoidosis, Sjogren s, Asthma, and have had my right ovary and fallopian tube removed when a dermoid tumor grew very large and attached to both organs.
