Ovarian Cysts

Cysts are fluid-filled sacs that form in some parts of the body, such as the ovaries. Ovarian cysts are very common in women. Most ovarian cysts are asymptomatic and sometimes the person never notices them unless accidentally on ultrasound.
Cysts that develop twisting, bleeding, or rupture may cause some problems. Problems such as abdominal pain, vague back pain, pain during sex, painful menstruation and abnormal bleeding, nausea and vomiting, difficulty urinating, loss of appetite and a feeling of rapid satiety.

Surgical method

Ovarian cysts can be treated with non-surgical methods, but if the treatment is not effective and the cyst grows, it can lead to severe pain and distressing symptoms for the patient. Laparoscopic surgery is used in Mortaz hospital.
Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure in which small incisions of about 2 cm are made in the abdominal wall. Through the laparoscope, the surgeon enters the abdominal area and accesses the ovary and the cyst, and the cyst is removed.
There is another surgical procedure called laparotomy, which is an open surgical procedure. This procedure involves making a simple, large incision in the lower abdomen to allow the surgeon to access the ovary, which is a more invasive surgical procedure than laparoscopy.

In most cases, laparoscopic surgery is used, but sometimes, in some cases, such as when the ovarian cyst is very large or there is a possibility of cancer, this method is used because it is safer. Sometimes, during laparoscopy, the surgeon is forced to change the surgical procedure and perform laparotomy to remove the cyst safely from the abdomen.
The patient is expected to be hospitalized and treated for three days to five days, depending on the type of cyst, the size of the cyst, the type of surgery, and the patient's physical condition. And they should be under the care of a doctor at home for about a week to a month, depending on the patient's condition.

After entering the hospital and final admission, you will be taken to the international patients’ ward by the head of the international patients’ ward to get acquainted with the treatment staff and your doctor. There, your specialist doctor will examine you. Your medical record will be created and all information such as the pills you are taking or your treatment history or possible problems you have had in the past will be reviewed and recorded by the medical team. You will then be admitted to be monitored to prepare for the operation. In the meantime, you will be evaluated by a nurse and your blood pressure will be checked and a blood sample will be taken from you to register your blood type and that you will go to the laboratory to check your blood sugar and cholesterol, etc. You will also have a urine test. You will also be examined by a cardiologist and you will have an ECG taken from you and an echocardiogram if necessary. You will then be examined by an anesthesiologist to determine if you can have this surgery. You will be given information about the operation ahead of you and pre-surgery training.
Prior to admission, your doctor will order an ultrasound, CT-Scan, or MRI for an accurate diagnosis.

You will then be taken to the operating room at a pre-arranged time. You will be anesthetized and after a few minutes your surgery begins. After removing the ovarian cyst and completing the surgery, you will be taken to the recovery ward to be monitored and your vital signs will be recorded second by second and you will be constantly monitored by the anesthesiologist and surgeon to regain consciousness. Once you regain consciousness, you will either return to your ward or be taken to the intensive care unit as determined by your doctor. Your medication, which was started the day before to prevent infection, will continue. Also, your bleeding will be completely under control and your dressings will be changed regularly. Serum therapy has also been started for you to regain physical strength. After being awakened, you will be examined in the ward by your doctor. If necessary, tests are taken to ensure your health. During this period, according to the doctor's diagnosis, either a painkiller is used for you, or a pain pump is installed. On this day, a urinary catheter will be inserted for you and will be monitored regularly and your urine output will be checked.

Nursing care continues and you are examined daily by your doctor. Your catheter is constantly monitored and rinsed regularly. At your doctor's discretion, the catheter may be removed these days. You will also be given the necessary training to take care of the catheter and how to use it. In addition, other care training will be provided to you by the head of the international patient ward. During these two days, with the help of your nurse, you get out of bed and walk so that your body regains its strength.

If your condition is stable, the necessary training after discharge for home care and proper exercise or diet will be taught by the treatment team. If needed and at the doctor's discretion, you may be monitored for an additional night, otherwise you can be discharged on the same day. Your medications will be adjusted and you will be instructed on how to take these medications at home.

It is better to stay in Iran for a week after discharge to avoid a long trip and to easily access the doctor and be examined if you need to. But if you want, you can return home any day you want from the day after the discharge. We will not leave you alone and whenever you have any questions, you can contact us or even have a video call with your doctor through the head of the department. In addition, your ward manager will be in touch with you in the first week after your discharge to ensure your health.
