I am slated to go in for surgery on Jan.4 and I am very concerned about this. It will be a fairly invasive surgery. It will be open incision and I will have my ovary, tube and cyst removed with the possibility of a complete hysterectomy. Almost 3 years ago I had my gallbladder removed laparoscopically. This is a much less invasive surgery consisting of only four small incisions. After my gallbladder surgery my FM took a turn for the worst and I have been getting progressively worse since. Now part of this I attribute to the amount of time I had to wait for the surgery (5 months) while having regular attacks. I am going in for this much bigger surgery and even though the surgeon is FM friendly I can't help but worry that I will come out of this even worse than I am now.
