Ovarian Cysts: Management and Treatment

Ovarian cysts can be treated in multiple ways depending on their size, type, and severity.
If the ovarian cyst is simple, that is, a follicular cyst which is lesser than 4 cm, it can be treated through birth control medications and lifestyle changes. These medications help stop ovulation and provide rest to the ovaries, which in turn, manages the condition.
However, if the ovarian cyst is larger or pathological, that is, it is a dermoid cyst, endometriomas, cystadenomas, or hemorrhagic ovarian cyst, cystectomy surgery is suggested. Currently, laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy is the most advanced and minimally invasive surgical option to remove an ovarian cyst. It marks minimal blood loss, negligible scarring, and quick recovery.

Ovarian Cystectomy Surgery

Diagnostic Tests for ovarian cyst

To detect the presence, severity, and course of treatment for ovarian cysts, you may be recommended the following tests:

  • Complete blood cell count: A CBC test is a complete blood test used to understand if you might have anemia, infection, or leukemia. It also helps a doctor understand how certain medications, diseases, or treatments may have affected your bloodstream. The test is simple and takes only a few minutes. It is done by taking a blood sample by a needle through your vein in the arm. You can continue your work painlessly after. Note: It does not need fasting and you can eat and drink whatever you like before the test. The lab results may take well over 6-9 hours after the test. )
  • Blood sugar test: A blood sugar test is done to screen for diabetes. It’s done by pricking the finger and testing the blood sample on a glucose meter strip. The results take only 10-20 seconds and alerts for high/ low blood sugar levels and glycosylated hemoglobin. (Note: The test must be done on fasting, that is, you cannot eat or drink before the test.)
  • Thyroid test: A thyroid test is a blood test that tests for TSH, that is, the thyroid-stimulating hormone in the bloodstream. It thus helps screen both- hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. The test is done by taking a small blood sample through a needle in your arm vein. You can continue your work right after. (Note: It is done on fasting. That is, you cannot eat or drink anything before the test. )
  • Liver function test: Liver function test screens for any abnormalities caused due to liver malfunctioning and rule out any other cause for abdominal pain. The test is done by taking a blood sample through a vein in your arm. (Note: It is done on fasting, that is, you cannit eat anything 10-12 hours before the test.)
  • Kidney function test: A kidney function test is done either through a blood sample by an arm vein or through a 24-hour urine sample collected yourself in a sterile container. Both ways, it helps rule out any diseases caused due to liver malfunctioning and rule out all parallel reasons for abdominal pain other than the ovarian cyst. (Note: It is not a fasting test. You can both- eat and drink before the test. )
  • Chest X-ray: Chest X-Ray is a quick, non-invasive test of the chest area and helps have an internal image of your heart, lungs, and bones. It is done to screen out any other conditions for abdominal pain other than the ovarian cyst itself. (Note: It is not a fasting test. You can both- eat and drink before the test. )
  • Abdominal ultrasound and/or CT scan and MRI: Abdominal ultrasound, CT Scan or MRI are imaging tests that provide an internal image of your abdomen and hence help understand the probable disease, its size, type, and severity. (Note: These are not fasting tests. You can both- eat and drink before the test. )

Treatment

Ovarian Cystectomy can be performed in two ways- advanced and conventional.

  • Laparoscopic Ovarian Cystectomy (Advanced Method)
    As the name suggests, it is performed using a laparoscope, that is, a tiny tube-like instrument with a camera and light on its end. First, the surgeon creates a tiny hole (main port) on the diseased site. Through this, they inject CO2 gas into the patient’s abdominal wall to lift it above the intestine and create better visibility. If needed, 1-2 more small ports may be created to insert necessary surgical instruments. Thereafter, a small camera and light (laparoscope) are passed through the main port to provide maximum visibility and improve the preciseness of the operation. Monitoring the site through the digital screen, the surgeon removes the cyst through the main port and closes it through a stapler or 1-2 stitches. The other smaller ports heal naturally. Mostly, the patient can go home the same day and substantial recovery can be expected within 2-3 days.
  • Open Cut Ovarian Cystectomy (Conventional Method)
    As the name suggests, it is done through an open-cut incision on the diseased site. The surgeon then removes the troubling cyst and closes the incision through stitches. The method is usually recommended only in case of an exceptionally large, cancerous, or complicated ovarian cyst. It is comparatively more invasive, marks heavier blood loss, visible post-surgical scars, and a longer recovery period.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the cost of laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy in Mumbai?

Laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy costs around Rs 40,000 to Rs. 70,000 in Mumbai. The exact price may vary on your choice of hospital, doctor’s fee, days of hospitalization, medication, and other medical and non-medical factors.

Why consult Pristyn Care for an ovarian cyst removal surgery in Mumbai?

Pristyn Care has some of the best and most reputed gynecologists in Mumbai. Our surgeons specialize in minimal access surgeries (MAS) and track excellent patient reviews for the past 10-15 years.

Can I eat anything before ovarian cyst surgery?

No. Doctors suggest you keep a 6-8 hour fast before the surgery. Else you could have anesthesia-related side-effects or complications. This is why we schedule your surgeries early in the morning after overnight fasting.

How long does the ovarian cyst surgery take?

Ovarian cyst removal surgery is a slightly delicate procedure and may take anywhere between 1-3 hours. However, this time may also vary basis your individual health, co-morbidities, surgery method, doctor’s experience, etc.

How many days of hospitalization (hospital stay) are needed for ovarian cyst surgery?

The hospitalization required after ovarian cystectomy depends on your chosen surgery method. While a conventional open-cut ovarian cyst surgery requires a typical of 1-3 days of hospital stay, you may be relieved the same day or next after laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy.

Does insurance cover the ovarian cyst surgery cost?

Yes. Ovarian Cyst removal surgery falls under the medically necessary bracket of insurance and is hence covered by most insurance providers in India. However, the same may vary from policy to policy, case to case, or on the reason for the surgery undertaken. We suggest you call us directly for a more precise answer on your individual case and policy.

How long does the recovery take after ovarian cyst surgery?

While recovery after open-cut ovarian cystectomy takes well over 15-20 days, substantial recovery can be expected within 3-5 days after laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy.

When can I join my office after laparoscopic ovarian cyst surgery?

In most cases, you can join back work within 3-5 days after laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy. However, please confirm the same from your doctor if your work requires a lot of heavy physical activity/ exertion.

When can I travel after ovarian cyst surgery?

While you can cover the short distance travel even on the same day or next, we suggest you wait for at least 5- 7 days for longer distances. However, if traveling is urgent and can’t be avoided, please talk about the same with your doctor. They could then guide you more on the precise diet, medicines, and lifestyle to rule out any discomfort during travel.

Does ovarian cyst surgery affect a woman’s fertility?

No. Ovarian cystectomy removes only the cyst and not the ovaries. Therefore, it does not affect a woman’s fertility. However, as the diseased site is slightly critical, we suggest you choose only a very well-experienced surgeon to rule out any avoidable surgical complications.

When can I resume my sexual life after ovarian cyst surgery?

Typically, one can resume their sexual life within 10 days post laparoscopic surgery. However, it may differ from person to person. We suggest you take enough rest and resume only after you feel fully recovered and healthy.

What are the risks of ovarian cyst surgery?

While most modern-day surgeries, especially laparoscopic surgeries are extremely safe and mark minimum risks or complications because of better visibility and access, there is always a slight chance of risk because of the nature of surgical complexity. These rare circumstances include-

  • Excessive bleeding
  • Infection
  • Damage to the ovaries or surrounding organs (including loss of fertility)

How to prepare for ovarian cyst surgery?

Here is a general guideline to help you prepare for the surgery:

  • Discuss all your current medicines, health conditions, supplements, and herbal potions elaborately with your doctor. Your doctor might have to ask you to stop certain medicines, especially ibuprofen, insulin, or blood thinners. They hamper the surgery and risk excessive bleeding during the procedure.
  • Check for your BP and sugar levels: Just like any other surgery, cystectomy too, cannot be performed if you have imbalanced BP or sugar levels. This is why they must first be brought down and in control. The same holds true in the recovery period too.
  • Quit smoking/ drinking and use of recreational drugs at least two weeks before the surgery.
  • You might want to freeze your eggs as an added step to preserve the chances for further childbearing.
  • As the surgery is performed under anesthesia, you are recommended to not eat/ drink (even water) at least 6-8 hours before the surgery. This is why, in most cases, the surgery is performed in the early morning hours on an empty stomach.

Guidelines and diet for better recovery after an ovarian cyst surgery

We suggest the following guidelines for a smooth recovery after ovarian cyst surgery:

  • While you can mostly eat anything, we suggest you keep your diet healthy and balanced for a quicker recovery. Include fresh fruits and homemade meals of lighter consistency for easier digestion.
  • Include a lot of water and fiber such as salad in your diet. These would help with easier bowel movements. In case you feel bloated, or slightly constipated, ask your doctor for a light laxative.
  • Avoid any strenuous activity for at least 3-5 days post-surgery.
  • Avoid penetrative sex for 7-10 days post-surgery.
  • Keep your lifestyle active and include at least 20-30 minutes of light workouts daily.
