On 11/7 I went to ER because of pain by my ovaries that had doubled me over for about 20 minutes. They did and CT and US and determined that there was a 3.1 cm complex cyst that was on my left ovary and small amount of fluid in my pelvis. The report said it could be a hemorragic cyst. Then on 11/11 I followed up with my ob/gyn to see if anything changed. They said the cyst looked the same with no blood flow and that there was now a moderate amount of fluid in my pelvis.
Yesterday 11/18 I went to a gyn/onc to see what he though. He did not do another US but he said he is concerned about the fluid and wants me to get another US. If there is still fluid in the pelvis he wants to do surgery.
1 Is two weeks enough time for fluid to be reabsorbed into the body.
2 I did get my period on 11/12 would this effect the cyst being gone?
3 If the fluid is still there should I have the surgery right away?
4 He mentioned that it could be cancer from my other organs since there is fluid in the pelvis, is that true?
This is not the expert forum. Go to bottom right of this page to see link to Dr G's forum.
1. Two weeks may or may not be enough time
2. Having your cycle may or may not effect it
3. We are not Drs. Do what a Dr tells you to do
4. Are you kidding me? Are you really going to take the word of a bunch of strangers on the internet who may or may not be actual people with cancer and cyst problems over the word of a Dr you know is a real person with a medical license?
Thanks but everytime I try and post something in that forum it says it's reached it's daily limit for questions.
My report also said there was no flow to the cyst, is that good or bad. Also, does anyone have any stories on how long thier fluid took to go away? I'm just really concerned and I will take my doctors advice but this forum is for support.
