Sorry to hear she lost an ovary but so happy her surgery is over. I just had an abdominal myomectomy and my recovery is 6 weeks. I have been told by many to really take it easy, even if I feel fine, because my body is still continuing to heal. Tell your DD that if she experiences any kind of pain to ask for painkillers right away, and try to get her an extra supply of painkillers for home. Today is my first day off painkillers (my myo was 3/11) and I feel like I am going to need one tonight. Luckily I have another week's supply... Take care of her and I hope her insurance will cover IVF. I have Blue Cross/Blue Shield, and before that I had Aetna, both plans covered IVF at 90%.


Good luck! KUP
