I went in for several ultrasounds a few weeks leading up to the surgery and was told by the radiologist & my ob/gyn that the cyst was on the left ovary but after the surgery she said it was actually on the right (she cut me on the left) and did remove it along with my ovary :-(. Now I'm wondering why I was told it was on the left. What was the purpose of the ultrasounds? Shouldn't that have shown exactly which side it was on?
At post-op her explaination was that she based her info on the radiologist's report and when she asked him he said that the pictures he saw showed it to be on the left.
Has this ever happened to anyone?
Sorry for all the questions...
