Well, I had my surgery on Wednesday. Based on my ultrasounds, they had expected to find a simple cyst that would easily be removed from my ovary. Instead, they found a complex, septated cyst that was deeply tied into the ovary. They ended up removing the whole thing (ovary included). Now I am waiting for the pathology report. The nurse told me that the report is available in the computer system, but that today is my doctor's day off, so I may have to wait until Monday to find out what it says (arggh!) I am nervous because I understand that a complex cyst is more likely to be cancerous than a simple one. Can anyone give me any info about this?
I had two complex cysts removed a couple years ago and they were completely benign, but everyone's situation is different. Stats say, though, that 99% are benign so the odds are in your favor. Best of Luck....
I know your fear and it is awful to have to wait. I had what they thought were three complex cysts which turned out to be dermoid cysts removed last December. They were all benign. Hang in there. 99% are benign. No matter the outcome we are there for you. In the meantime, just enjoy your beautiful child.
How big was your cyst? And I am curious that if they called it a simple cyst why it was removed. I am new to this and have 2 small (2cm) simple cysts that they tell me are nothing to worry about and normal for my age. This is all so complicated.
My surgery was on Wed too 2/14. My cysts were 2 cm and 3 cm but they mergered into one cyst recently before the surgery. Because of the margin or something, my doctor needed to remove the entire ovary, instead of just the cyst. I am still in the recovery period. I don't take any medication & have no pain (some pains if I stretch or hit the incisions' areas). My doc said it looked benign but I am still waiting for the biosy's result to confirm.
My throat is still sore, and i still have some sticky muscus from my lung. I need to cough to get them out. So, i can breath easier. This gives me a hard time at nigh time. Does there anyone has the same symtom?
I was bleeded for 3 days. Now, i have only some yellow fluid discharge from my vagina. Thanks
