So last time, I wrote here about my big protruding tummy and what I'm feeling about having it checked. And we did went to the doctor and here's what they found. (btw, thank you to the person who gave me the best advice I could get that time through here. It helped a lot that even right now, It's keeping me well.) So yeah, they discovered a growing cyst, that's basically Ovary is the origin, about 25x10cm big. And surprisingly It didn't bother me that much, maybe because the doctor said that people my age, it's usually benign (I'm 18) and once it was removed, there's no follow up medication and such needed anymore. The only problem was that it grows fast and the thing we should prevent is for it to rapture, (the doctor said, that's when I will feel the pain, cause for now, thankfully, I'm not feeling anything other than I am really bloated.). My parents are just arranging things for the operation so we can be sched in a public hospital cause we can't afford to go to a private one, it's too expensive for an average family like us. So can someone please give me words of advice, something like a sugar coated ones that says, Surgery is not that bad. It's like a bite of an ant. It's my first time and okayyy I'm freakin' nervous, maybe now I'm not scared, but when the surgery already has a schedule, for sure af It will come short after. Please tell me anything, anything that is comforting and- okay just anything. Thank you in advance! Also, is it true that after you undergo a surgery, you'll be forgetful? Like lasting forgetfulness?
