Patient :I just had surgery to remove a cyst from the right ovary, they had to also remove the right ovary. I'm experiencing a lot of pain. I had the surgery in the morning yesterday, but had to go back to the er because of the pain. They give me Percocet, but it just isn't doing enough. What should I do?
Thanks for your query.
Read and understood that you had a surgery to remove the cyst and the ovary from your right side yesterday.
Now that you had to visit ER for the pain you have, and they give you percocet. But it is not helping you.
Ideally the surgery on the right ovary should be painless by next day.
If the pain is not getting a relief, you may insist on a clinical examination by a Surgeon and get an ultrasonography done to see if there is any internal problem like bleeding, hematoma formation or so.
You may please go back to the ER and insist for investigations and admission.
Do you have any other symptoms like bloating, nausea, vomiting or so?
