^sis, wala namn sinabi yung doctor ko na resting period. basta ang sabi healed na ang incision ko. and ang gamot ko na lang is for the scar. bumiyahe na ako pabalik dito Abu Dhabi kasi sa pinas ako nagpaopera.  actually, di namn sinabi ni doc na bawal ang contact ang sabi lang is bawal pa mag baby. mga after 2 months pa daw. so yun. yung mother ko nagsabi na bawal daw muna ang contact. i dunno na tuloy.

hi mga sis, when all meds fail to cure some of our reproductive problems, having lap is a right decision.  It took me almost 5 years and 3 different obgynes to finally decide to undergo the procedure.  Fortunately, I was refered to a very good ob/fertility specialist.  It's true that our chance of conceiving increases after the lap.  In my case, I got preggy 2 months after it, basta aggressive fertility work-up follows at pa-check din si hubby syempre at the same time para ma-address din kung may problem sya. May our God bless all your searching for the solution of your repro concerns.

hi sis joyfulife! im a newbie here. May i ask who's your OB/Fertility Specialist? And saang hospital? thanks a lot and God bless! :)

Sa mga naging patient ni Dr. Sua-Lao magkano consultation sa kanya at TVU? Im planning to have a check-up sa kanya sa Condesca St clinic niya.

Herman, I am sorry ha - but I do not understand ano ang exact diagnosis/illness ng wife mo.

I was given Luprolex for my endometriosis. It's a medicine that if given continuously, dapat hindi na mag-ovulate yung person - no spotting, mens/period or whatsoever. Im my case, it makes it prevent from the cyst to keep on coming back. Wala namang side effect sa akin ang Luprolex. I had five shots early this year. And, yes, mahal siya, one shot should cover her for 26-28days, after nun dapat sundan agad.

okay bang option ang luprolex? i am still thinking of mine, i have a 7 cm endometrial cyst.
if i have it removed, possible pa ba magbuntis? my right ovary has endo focus, sa left yung cyst.
please help!

^ Yes, applicable ang Laparoscopy sa endo IF your OB says so.

^^Luprolex is an alternative to surgery IF maliit pa yung cyst and manageable pa ng meds IF your OB says so.
Or Luprolex is also used after surgery to make sure yung maliit na hindi kaya sa surgery, mawala din meantime and at the same time, hindi muna bumalik yung period.

You can only try conceiving after surgery after so many months. Pero higher chances as they say.

If cysts and adhesions lang ang tatanggalin, yes siyempre possible mabuntis. Basta you have your ovary.

Please consult your OB, she knows best

^thanks sis meg! i am still not decided what to do on my cyst, its size is for operation na rin but the OB also suggested na to be conservative, try the luprolex. is it effective to atleast make the cyst a lil smaller? hay, scared lang din ako sa side effects daw na hot flushes, ang init pa naman dito sa tin.

Try to seek for other opinion. Go to other OB.
I went to five last 2004. 4 of them said I need a surgery because of the size of the cyst.
Only one said na be conservative. And that only OB is NOT a reproductive endocrinologist (RE). SO I guess hindi niya specialization ang case natin.
So, make sure that your OB is RE. Kabisado nila yung special situation natin.

Nagulat ako why she wants medicine pa e, yung ibang doctors talagang surgery ASAP na. Kasi katakot pag ang kailangan if emergency surgery. Better agapan.

Will Luprolex work? Yes in a way. But the thing is gaano katagal? One injection is for a month only. Magkano na yun ngayon? P7-9k? ANd that's monthly plus the side effects nga.

^thanks sis Meg! RE is repro-endo? Waah wala akong alam! Toinks! So much better ang iparemove na yung cyst than mag try pa ng Luprolex? It cost 8k+ nga daw now...sige will look for other opinions pa...napapraning kasi ako sa size, di naman to mabilis lumaki db... Hay super thanks sis Meg!

Sis angelshines, I had 7cm and 5th cysts on both ovaries. First doctor I went to, a ob-Sonologist, she had a wait and see approach. Binigyan ako antibiotics, pillsfor 3mknths to stop the cyst from growing daw. Pero most likely, operate din after. Baka daw tanggalin pa Ang ovary! Hindi sya yung talagsng OB ko, I go to her Lang for tests and ultrasounds -HMO kasi. Tapos I went to my original OB for a second opinion. He wanted to operate ASAP. As in before I get my period. He specializes in infertility and high risk pregnancies. I asked if he will take out my ovaries and he said No, the purpose of the operation is to preserve the ovaries. Matrabaho and meticulous daw yung pagtAnggal ng cyst and easy way out daw yung pagtAnggal ng ovaries.

I am one week post-op now pero laparotomy ako, Hindi laparoscopy so masmatagal recovery ko. I believe bibigyan din ako Nung mga pseudo-menopause shots to clean-up the microscopic endo.

To be honest, kahit naka-isang CS na ko, Natakot pa din ako kasi operation padin sya. Pero I trust my doctor, sure ako sa competence Nya, confident kami sa kanya, kaya lumalakas din loob ko. 1 day Lang ako nahirapan and it was caused by the anesthesia. Other days, kayang-kaya!

So. As what sis Meg suggests, visit other OBs na yun Ang specialization nila. NASA yo padin naman Ang decision at the end e. I-weigh mo Pros and cons if operation agad or not.  Di biro Ang magpa-opera and di din biro Ang 7cm cyst kaya pag-isipan mo din mabuti.

How happy is the blameless vestal's lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd

mga sis, I just had laparoscopy last saturday that was march 12, sunday ambulatory na ako, monday i went home na.. and tuesday i i went to work na.. sa lap kasi maliit lang incisions compared to conventional surgery. kahit 1 week na rest ok na nman as long as kaya nio, but still recommended two weeks. the pain that you can only feel is from the CO2 that will be injected into your abdomen to clearly see all organs. parang kabag lang sya. madaling maalis if you try to walk and walk kasi you'll fart it out.. minimal lang yung pain from the incision. this is the advantage of lap though expensive nga lang but kasi we're paying for the skill of the OB surgeon. not all ob can do lap kasi they have to specialize it first in ob gynescopy.. :-) my ob is dra. desquitado from asian and healthway. :-)

sis luxurious - ambilis mo namang magrecover from lap...i also had lap last jan. 21 pero my OB told me to have a 30-day rest period kaya yun ang sinunod ko kahit na gustung-gusto ko na talaga pumasok agad...siguro nga depende sa OB and condition ng pasyente... :)

endometrial cyst? what is the size? I have mine also, but when i undergo surgery, [textspeak!] nman nakita yung ob ko except for some adhesions.. [textspeak!] dahil ng lifestyle change ako and acupuncture.. my ovary is not pcos na rin as well..
naku bilis ng recovery ko, mababa ba pain tolerance mo sis? kasi when you immediately ambulate the faster your recovery will be..
