You could ask about using laparascopic diathermy instead - this is a gentler and safer option which achieves the same result but with more precision.

I have a website with loads of PCOS info www.mypcos.info Please stop by!

Thank you so much Jennifer! That was a great article. I did not see that last night and that one actually made me feel a little better. I plan on calling my dr and talking about it some more before I go through with it though

I had never even heard of Ovarian Wedge Resection until your post. I had to seek a little more info myself. I found this article and it does sound pretty positive...

I'm sure you probably read most of this in your research, but I thought I would post it in case others might be interested.

Good luck with making this difficult decision. I can understand why you are struggling to know what to do.

I looked up a few things as well and saw something mentioned about ovarian drilling I think it was called. It is the safer, less invasive procedure more commonly done now to give relief. Perhaps you can inquire with your doctor about that and why s/he feels that wedge resection is the suggestion. Don't be afraid to call your Dr. office and explain that you have some questions about the procedure after doing some research and would like to speak with the Dr about your questions. Make them explain their thinking and if they can not provide you with an answer that puts your concerns to rest regarding why it is necessary in your case then get a second opinion. If you want children someday and have PCOS, you will not want to do anything that might make it more difficult than it may already be.

Be cautious but ultimately, make the people with the knowledge answer your questions. That is why they are 'your' dr.

I am a little scared of it. I researched nearly all night last night.So far I got that docs rarelly do it anymore because scar tissue. It might effect fertility later. This infertility would be due to your scared ovaries. Right now I just want to stop my pain. But later I would like to try to have children and have a good chance to succeed. I am stuck...I really need to talk to someone who has had it done.
