Laproscopic surgery - Ovarian Drilling

Hi Susan,

Believe I complicated the question.
While we went to another Gyn for a opinion on trying D&C, she told us D&C is not required. And the Gyn suggested to go for 'Laproscopic Surgery' of Cystic ovaries to remove the water bubbles via 'Ovarian Drilling'.

Please advice your valuable opinion on the same.

Appreciate your timely reponses.


Hi Jeyaganesan

Thanks for your question!

I helped you on this issue recently and hope you were able to take a look at my reply:

In this reply I have also talked about the benefits and risks.

With regard to having a D&C done laproscopically, it's generally faster, with little scarring and obviously is far less invasive. Laproscopic methods are generally preferred by doctors and patients. I've had this procedure done myself (for the removal of my appendix) and definitely preferred it over regular surgery.

Best of health to your wife as she makes her decisions. Just make sure both of you talk to her doctor about the benefits and risks of both options.
