When I had a 20cm cyst, I couldn't eat for a week because my intestines were near my left lung causing untreatable constipation.  luckily, because of the slight severity of my situation, I had surgery a week after my ultrasound.  If you have to wait a long time before a procedure, I suggest liquifying your diet as much as possible, because the tight feeling may be just because your cyst is taking up too much room!

I feel the same way, like my insides are being twisted and crunched and strangled.  

My cyst is 12 cm, or was 3 weeks ago. My pain over the last 2 days has gone from a 5 or 6 to a 9 on a 0-10 scale.  And my appetite?  Forget about it! I force myself to eat at least once a day just because I know I need nourishment and strength, but man is it uncomfortable. For the past couple of months I was peeing like a pregnant woman, every half hour, because the cyst is sitting on top of my bladder, but over the last couple of days I've peed maybe 4 times tops..TOTAL!

I had no idea that a cyst could make someone feel so much discomfort!  It makes me want to rip out my own innards!
