Stomach problems with a 3.5cm cyst on Left Ovary

I have no pain with cyst, but do have pain & discomfort within bowel areas. Colonscopsy proved
all is good, CT scan found 3.5cm cyst. I usually have no clue that I need to have a #2 til i'm on the toilet &
it happens, I pee constantly. I have tightening across my chest/lungs feels like a belt tightening below my breasts
& this surely hurts. I keep feeling sick(have never vomited), tired but not sleepy, achy lower back & legs occassionly. I'm always looking like i'm 6 mths pregnant, even if my daily fiber helps me '#2'. I have to take fiber twice a day. Whether I go or not, I continously look 6mths prego. I'm done having children(47yrs), I believe i'm going through pre-menopause, unless its my stomach issues is the cause, as I only have a period every 10mths.
Can anyone relate???

What do you mean, it was your Ovaries? Did you have them removed & all was good?

I'm suppose to get tested to see if i'm having problems digesting foods & if so what kinds.
I think ive 2 issues going on at the time, although read cysts can cause stomach problems too. So really lost where i'm at..

I'm not afraid to seek help, Dr's or advice. Not seeking could be worse!!!!

I just found out the Sprain like feelings in my shoulder to above my elbows, which besides very painful, its the result from my cyst on  my Ovary.. The constant stabbing pain on my right rib is due to pressure from the cyst On my Ovary... Problems going to the bathroom #2's is because of the Cyst, the tingling i get down my right leg while laying down, is cause of my cyst... I also get sick(just never actually puked), i get light headed, toss N turn every night, because laying on either side or my back creates pain & gets worse the longer i lay there. If i sit or stand, my Right rib constantly feels like its being crushed, all because of the cyst...
I get an occassion headache, doesn't usually last long, but my body does get really hot, sometimes only half(top half) will get hot & my lower body is cool to the touch-due to the Cyst... Taking Laxatives & Fiber is basically just breaking down my bowel movement, the cyst is infact stopping me from passing...I can't lay down long, nor sit or stand very long, without throbbing pain....I don't think all is OK....
