I just found out I have ovarian cysts and its very possible that I have endometriosis as well. One of my cysts is the size of a softball. This explains all of my pain and menstrual and bowel abnormalities. Im really worried because I dont know what any of this is and what to expect. Should I be concerned or is this a not so serious condition and I should relax? All I know is that its painful, possible surgery is in my future, and possible infertility. I havent been feeling like "myself" for a while now, so who knows how long I have had these diseases or whatever they are. They have me taking BC pills to help with the swelling on my cysts. She said if that doesnt help, then they will have to be surgically removed. Im terrified because I have never had surgery. It seems as if Im always stressing over the simplest things, and then to have this weighing on my shoulders as well made things a lot worse for me. I feel like Im losing hope. I see myself in so much debt over medical bills, and I see myself in pain for a long time. I also see myself never being able to have children, which tears me apart at just the thought. Has anyone here gone thru this? and have a positive outcome in the end? Someone please help me I dont even know what to think...
I have been diagnosed with endometriosis and just found out today that I have a large cyst on one of my ovaries. Last night I spent a rough night worrying about all these problems. I only got about 2 hours of sleep. Halfway through the night, I realized that I could spend all my time worrying about it or I could tighten up my belt and fight it. Talk to your doctor, and if he/she won't talk to you, find a new one. Information always helps chase the worries away. Don't lose hope. Don't let this get you down.
Im trying not to lose hope. But every little pain i feel now is scaring me. Like i have chest pains now. I didnt know that endometriosis could spread to the lungs, which isnt good for me...I have tuberculosis and already have scarring there. I really dont know what im most scared about...the pain, infertility, or cancer. I have the worst luck ever.
I have also recently found out that i have a left ovarian cyst. It showed up on a ct scan when they thought i might have a kidney stone. i have been experiencing dull pain in my sides. It's really weird. Anyway, my doc recommended i see my ob/gyn for follow up and the ct showed the cyst is about 3.8cm. I am scared out of my mind as well. I have 2 little boys 5 and 2and a great husband. I am also very worried and am not getting into doc until sep 1. I will post what i find out but everyone just keeps telling me how common they are in this age bracketand not to worry. I am 32 and have always had normal paps but am still scared. Thanks, Erica
I know how u feel. Not knowing what to expect. My cysts didnt shrink any and one other appeared so she set me up for the laproscopy 3 days after, on the 28th. 1st time going under and I was terrified and stressed out!!! I still have pains in my abdomen and more cramps than usual. I dont know if this is still part of the healing process but its getting really irritating! Plus my back has been killing me non stop, im really starting to regret this surgery, Im hoping it didnt make things worse
I went to doc and he said it is very common for women to develop cysts. I now have to go back in 2 mos. to see if it is still there and then may need to get it out. All i can do now is wait. My mom has had 2 laparoscopies and says they are not so bad. Hope you get to feeling better soon. I will post what i find out in October.
Good luck and I hope everything goes as planned. Ur mom is a lucky one that her surgeries werent so bad. My recovery was TERRIBLE! I have leftover gases stuck inside my body and there were unbearable pains in my chest and shoulders. It was worse at night..I could hardly breathe. But hey dont let that frighten you...I hope all goes well!!!
