I have to start dissertation work soon, so would like to get the surgery over with
quickly. The doc recommends removal of ovary with
the cyst and also removal of the uterus. At first she suggested total hysterectomy, but I said, at 40, I am too young to not have an ovary (assuming no cancer, of course). Finally, due to my antiphospholipid syndrome, she prescribed Lovenox (I have been off the warfarin in preparation for the surgery). The Lovenox costs $1,300 for 10 days worth.
