Possible Complications

Complications are rare, but no procedure is completely free of risk. If you are planning to have an ovarian cyst removed, your doctor will review a list of possible complications, which may include:

  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Cyst returns after it is removed
  • Need for removal of one or both ovaries
  • Infertility
  • Blood clots
  • Damage to other organs

Factors that may increase the risk of complications include:

  • Obesity
  • Chronic or recent illness
  • Heavy use of alcohol , smoking , or use of narcotics (may make delivering anesthesia more difficult or impair wound healing)
  • Use of certain prescription medicines
  • Pregnancy
  • Previous abdominal surgery

Be sure to discuss these risks with your doctor before the procedure.

  • Signs of infection, including fever and chills
  • Redness, swelling, increasing pain, excessive bleeding, or discharge from the incision site
  • Pain that you cannot control with the medicines you have been given

Ovarian cysts are caused by not eating right. Once every woman starts doing this, I doubt the medical industry will have a need to continue with its crude design.
