OT: Going in for surgery Wednesday to remove ovarian cysts.
I've had this surgery, but it was over 20 years ago, so I'm not sure how relevant my experience is. From what I remember, I felt much better after the surgery than before because the cysts I had were extremely painful. I had mine done with an open incision, and I spent one night in the hospital and was out of school for two weeks, then out of PE for at least a month after that (I was in junior high). I did develop adhesions from the scar tissue, and they had to go in and break them up, but that was last summer--20 years after the original surgery. I doubt it will be any more painful than your RNY.
