Local anesthesia may be used to remove the cyst as there is no evident harm to the baby. It is also the most convenient mode from your point of view also as it can be performed as a day-care procedure. Just be careful to ask the surgeon and his staff not to apply pressure on the abdomen during the procedure as it may irritate the uterus; they usually care enough about that. Try to remain stress free about the surgery as it is going to go quite well. Wish you good health.
