I have no experience with your surgeries, but I will keep you in my thoughts that it all goes well.  Sorry you have to go through that.  If it helps, my best friend has had several exploratory female surgeries plus they removed an overy and she still wears a bikini, they did all hers with three tiny little cuts that healed with just the tiniest scars that will fade in a few years.

Wishing you well! I was told that the best way of trying to heal yourself or get through a crisis, is to have faith! My husband had half of his stomach cut out after his cancer bout. He’s fully recovered : ) So I know you will do well! Man ohhhh man I google everyttttthing lol so I totally understand how horrible you may feel hearing about all of the mishaps or such and such! Just relax and take it easy if ya can!! Good luck girlfrannn! hehe

Surgery is scary!  I’ve had a couple (nothing like yours…just knees keep getting messed up!)

Once your incision heals up, you’ll start seeing the scar/keloid formation.  Rub vitamin E oil on it once or twice a day — really massage it in — and it’ll help decrease the visibility of the scar.  There’s also Mederma and those things that are supposed to get rid of scars. 

Sending happy thoughts to you for a successful surgery and quick recovery!

My friend has a similar sugery (she had tumors growing on her ovaries)… She wrote all about her experience on her blog…and part 2 and part 3.

Hope that reading her experience will help ease the anxiety!

I have a friend who went through a surgery for the same thing as you a few months ago, but I’m not totally sure if it was the same kind of surgery.  Unfortunately she mysteriously remained in pain for several months afterwards however she recently (yesterday) had another surgery to see if something was wrong – and they did find an additional problem and fixed it!  The hope is she will recover properly now.
After surgery she she went on a few different holidays and was quite active held up well – she was always in a good mood, but different positions were painful. It was just unfortunate she continued to be in pain because there was an additional problem.

I wish you the best!

I have not had the procedure you’re talking about, but I have had a laproscopic appendectomy.  I have 3 teeny tiny scars on my abdomen- you can really only see one of them and that’s only if you are looking for it.  I was only 19 at the time so I may have been a bit more resilient than I am now, but other than some general abcominal pain for a few days post-op everything healed well and quickly. 

My only real advice is to avoid watching any comedies for a few days… the only thing that really REALLY hurt in the days after my surgery was laughing.

Best of luck, I hope you have a speedy recovery!
