preform it. I had surgery in March to have adhesions removed. They removed an ovarian cyst during that surgery and said I had to have another surgery to have my ovary out. i felt good for about 3 weeks after the March surgery. Then, I ended up back in the ER witht he same old pain. I had surgery again in May to have my ovary removed. They also removed my gallbladder. The adhesions had returned, so they removed them again. I felt pretty good for about 3-4 weeks, and then the pain was back with a vengeance.. I would caution you against another surgery based on my own experience. I am worse after the 2 surgeries. >This new OB I am going to wants to do a lap on me. She says it isn't
