I've been scheduled for surgery with my Gyno/Oncologist. I was wondering what all of your thoughts are having been through this, which surgery is 'best' for the first time? I have a Complex Mass on my right ovary, partially solid, partially fluid and have great concerns that it may be ruptured in laparoscopic surgery and potentially spill 'cancer' cells into my abdomen. Is this a valid concern?
I also have issues with my bottom right lung/diaphragm, liver area that need to be looked at and wondering how they would be able to thoroughly check those areas through laparoscopy? The recovery time from laparoscopy is a HUGE plus as I need to get back to work quickly, I just have concerns about them either spilling something or missing something with laparoscopic surgery instead....
