Mutiple cysts on ovary after having major surgery 5 months ago

Ever since having surgery 5  months ago to remove a big cyst on my left ovary which had stuck my bladder and bowel down, they took my left ovary out, i had a cyst on the right which they pooped in surgery and left my rt ovary in which they were gonna take out but left,ever since my op i have been in really bad pain on my rt ovary i went for scan a month ago i had 2 cyst at 3cm each 1 which was a haemorrogic cyst and 1 a normal cyst,after more unbearable pain and collapsing all the time, i have 3 big cyst 2 of which are haemorrogic, and one normal, and in total in one ovary 13cm,I am now struggling to open my bowels and bladder again and my kidney is hurting, Im so fed up with being fobbed off this hurts like mad, and now hoping they take this rt ovary out because these cysts are growing very quick i was told to just watch and wait and im totally not at ease with this
Three weeks ago i had really bad pain nearly ended up in er,but i thought it was either cyst rupturing or appendix so my doctor refered me for scan, shock horror more cysts, I am just wondering whether surgery is immenient now and what to do can theses cysts be cancerous ?

Sorry to hear you are having such a difficult time with this. Keep in mind most ovarian cysts are benign. It is dificult to say without seeing you pathology report. If you don't have it call your gyn and get a copy you are entitliled to have it. If there is ANY suspician you should be seeing a gyn/oncologist. I am suggesting you have cancer
but studies have shown that being treated by a gyn/onc has a much better outcome. I am concerned that you said "they popped" they right ovarian cyst during surgery? Did they biopsy any part of that cyst or peritoneal washings? If you are not getting anyhwere with your current surgeon then get a 2nd opinion or go to a gyn/onc for proper evaluation.
Good luck

No like i said that cyst was just pooped in surgery no investigations or biopsy, but the left ovary was taken out at the time due to a very big benign tumour in there, which at the time was an emergency as the tumour had stuck my bladder and bowel down and i was sruggling to open my bowels and bladdeer which at the time they fobbed me off

the 3 cysts i have now on that ovary have come within the last few months, i was told the haemorragic cyst are complex cyst and will not cause me pain and will dissapearr, every cyst i get turns into a haemorragic, one has grown within 2 weeks to 4cm, one is the size of a golf ball, another 4 cm and im not suppose to have pain, im told to just watch and wait

Im in  the uk and its not easy to get ur reports, t hey messed me about the first time, i had to put in an official complaint to the nhs about the way the they treat me it was barbaric

Im so fed up now and Im wondering whether these cysts haemorragic can be cancerous, and what is making so many come at once, I do not have pcos so worried as to what is going on and why these are rapidly growing fast, I am so sure 4 weeks ago one of these cysts reputured and that is now why i have now 2 haemorragic cysts

i do not know what to do scared and frightened, I have bad pain in my back too, i feel that i may have torsion, but i was told that cysts too small for that, I was told by surgeon if i had the ovary out i would end up with problems with hrt with being only 41

What is making all these cysts grow all of a sudden

I am sorry to hear this. To me it sounds like you are not getting any answers you may have PCOD. You may need to get to another gyn for a 2nd opinion if the one you have is blowing you off.
Good Luck
