Christina's surgery recovery...

Christina's surgery went well. The doctor said that he didn't foind anything else, except that the cyst was a lot bigger than he though, and it was NOT an ovarian cyst! It was located on the outside of the ovarie and fallopian tube. It was about 3 inches in diameter, which before he said about almost 4 centimeters in diameter. Big difference in size. Because it was bigger than thought, the doctor had to make the incisions a little bit bigger to where she needed a couple of stitches besides the skin glue and bandages. The pictures of the insides are from top left to right:
This picture shows the huge cyst infront of the ovarie. (You can't see the ovarie in that pic. The cyst is the one that look all veinie with the fallopian tubes stretched around it to the right.)
The 2nd pic shows it without the cyst in the picture. The other 2 pics are not important!
This picture was of Christina right after she came back to her room after surgery! She now states that even with the surgery pain, she feels a LOT better now! We are very happy to hear that!!!
