... Well, I went to the ER due to pain, my doctor's office said if the tylenol 3s did not help my pain, to go to ER if it was severe, and my husband said I needed to go, so I did. The ER doctor said the pain was NOT from the cyst and they seemed more concerned about the constant vaginal bleeding (for the last 6 weeks). He said the cyst would not cause pain for a long period of... (12 replies)
... The reason she thought they might do the biopsy, is because of the heavy bleeding. They may want to check for endometriosis. ... (12 replies)

... My doc seemed to think that since there were 2 medium sized cysts or 1 9cm cyst that they would want it out. I am nervous and scared about any surgery. Do they normally grow like this? In August it was just one 2.2cm cyst. I am having a lot of pelvic/hip/low back pain that my pcp says is due probably to my cysts and compounded by my inflamed bowels. The constant period...

... Your doctor could be wrong about the pain.... Not only do i have cyst's but i am one of what the ER doctor told me is 1 in 1000 women that had a cyst explode. i will try to explain the lower abdomen pain the best i can. It seemed to be intense in one area but spread throughout the lower abdomen and when they do that push on your belly and let go quickly test, it is... (12 replies)

... Jamie: Yes, it's called septicemia. It happens when infection enters the blood stream. It can be very dangerous, actually lethal, if not taken care of immediately. I would think if you were septic, they would have put you on IV antibiotics immediately and admitted you to the hospital. As far as I know they don't send septic patients home with oral anti-biotics. I'm more... (12 replies)
... i have had polyps on my uterus which were removed with a hysteroscopy. it has caused me to bleed almost regularly as well. after about 3 weeks or so of bleeding it did get very dark like mentioned earlier. i actually have a large mass now and i'm scheduled to have another hysteroscopy in a couple weeks. fun can't wait! i just wanted to comment on the ruptured cyst...

... I had surgery & the cyst was already gone. No cyst to cause the pain. Went to an osteopath doc who said it's my hip flexors. Makes sense with my pain. (12 replies)
... Had the laprascopic surgery. The cyst was gone! All this for nothing! The lump on the right must be due to the IBD. Pain must be due to the IBD. Now I have this surgery pain to boot!! (12 replies)
... Well, I just went to the gyno. He said the bleeding is possibly due to my cyst(s), he is scheduling surgery. Hysterscopy D&C, and diagnostic laproscopy, he hopes he can do remove the cyst laproscopically, but may have to do a laparotomy (open surgery) due to the size. I guess it's very large (or it was a month ago- who knows how big it is now! He did do a pelvic & felt it both... (12 replies)
... Hukleberrie: If it helps at all, my sister-in-law had a cyst on her right ovary about a year ago that her doctor said was almost the size of a soda can. They scheduled surgery, they removed the entire ovary and she has not had any recurrances on the remaining one to date. In her case the cyst was so large they had to take the entire ovary, but for smaller (10, 11 or 12cm)... (12 replies)
... Update: pcp called & told me the pelvic pain I am getting is probably due to the cysts. Seems the cyst(s) are bigger now & she told me the size: one is 4cm & one is 5cm (or it's one big 9cm? one!?!). She said something about getting in to the gyno & they will probably want to do endometrial biopsy (I think she said?). I am bummed. I thought these were no big deal, that's what... (12 replies)
... Well, my PCP called me yesterday, now I am being referred to a GYN. More bills, great (I don't have insurance). I will post when I know more.... (12 replies)

... Hello! I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago after going to the doctor about not having a period for about 6 months and trying to have a baby. The weird thing to me was I did not have any cysts what so ever. But I have very strong symptoms of PCOS. ... (4 replies)

... Hey! I have had PCOS for almost 2 years now. When I got diagnosed it was because I had had my period for 6 months straight (really really heavy). I didn't decide to go to a doctor until month 4 (I started getting anemic, and passing out). At this time, I was on summer break, and about a week from going to school, so there was nothing they could do really. I ended up having to... (4 replies)
