  • My sister had an ovary removed because of a cyst too. I think that recovery depends on the method of removal. My sis's cyst was the size of a cantelope, so she had a vertical incision from just below her belly button to her public bone - about 6 - 8 inches long. She was off work for 6 weeks, it was much like recovering from a c/s. Other than the recovery from the surgery itself she's been feeling great, no issues with hormones or anything like that.
