Hi Dear thanks for your question ,it is your 7th post operative day after laproscopic appendectomy.and they have noticed 2 enlarged lymph nodes along with cyst on fallopian tubes and ovaries.The small cyst in ovaries are normal and they appear and disappear depending upon your menstrual cycle,however it would have been better if they would have taken biopsy from lymph node at the time of surgery,Go for CT abdomen to look for others nodes also.The itching round the, surgical site do occur some time and is not a serious issue,if your wound is healed ,you can use steroid ointment.Hope i answered your question.
