Good morning, I had a bartholin gland cyst marsupialized twice 12 years ago. Now I have another one that ruptured yesterday and is trying to drain. gyn wants to remove gland. I am 68 years old and have had scare tissue in vulva area since a surgery at age 18. This may cause this problem with the gland. Should I go to a specialist for removal ? Is it a difficult surgery and how long is recovery?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the rupture? Have you used any medication for it?

Ruptured yesterday. I have been doing site baths for a week and am continuing to massage and have sit baths three times a day. It has not totally drained at this point.

Doctor's Assistant: What did you discuss at your last visit to the doctor?

If it fills up again, she will do surgery to remove gland. We live in a small area and I am not sure of how often she does this surgery. Is it a difficult surgery ?

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Nothing to do with this. No cancer but blood pressure treated with meds.

Hi...it is a simple surgery and most women would be ready to go home with 4 - 6 hours of surgery. You can expect to feel better each day, but you will probably need 2 to 4 weeks to recover.

This is not a major surgery at all.

You need not worry about a major complications at all.

I suggest you go ahead with the surgery which will give you permanent relief.

It is not a difficult surgery at all.

Another thing - if it will make you feel comfortable...any doctor will not attempt anything which is out of her or his expertise.
