I am a 29 year old female who has had a hystorectomy at the age of twenty six because of hemmorage after a pregnancy. A cyst was found on my left ovary and drained. For about a year , I have been experiencing pain on the lower right side of my back and abdomen. Test concluded that the cyst was back on the same ovary and that the pain may have been radiating to the right side causing the pain. Six months ago, I went through another painful surgery to have it removed. The pain went away for about a month but shortly came back. I thought it may have been an intestinal problem, so I went for further testing, only to find out I have a mass on the right ovary that wasn't detected during the previous surgery. I am very worried that this is highly abnormal and that I may be at risk for ovarian cancer. Does anyone have any helpful advice?
Hey there kid...all you can do is continue on the path you are already on....continue until you figure out what is going on...I would highly recommend you seek the advice of a gyn/oncologist...not because it is cancer but because these issues are exactly what they are trained for....they don't do paps and deliver babies...they do gyn surgeries....you didn't say how large the mass is but they are removed at 5 cm...you said it causes you pain...I would want it out. You realize that 99% of "masses" are benign....right? Please seek treatment from a gyn/oncologist with the results of your tests....together you will decide the best direction for you to go. Good luck....please do stay in touch.
Hey. I'm new to this site. I don't have any advice for you, but know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Actually, I am hoping that you can give me some information. I've always had severe, excruciating cramps and heavy bleeding with my periods. I have an appointment to see my gyn doctor next week. I'm 32 and have two sons. My husband and I do not plan on having any more children. I' ve had my tubes tied already. I was hurting so bad two months ago that I made an appointment with my gyn and had a vaginal ultrasound done. He found a cyst on my left fallopian tube. I don't know if this is what's been causing my pain or not. I just know that I cannot go on each month like this. Can you give me any pros or cons to having a hysterectomy? I feel like that is the only way I will get any relief, but I've heard good and bad things about them. Any suggestions?
you asked about a hysterctomy when you answered me yesterday.i would say that if you definitely do not want any more children, and if the pain is as bad as you say it is, then that would be something to consider,.the good thing about it is that you don't have to worry about getting a period any more, there is absolutely no way of getting pregnant. i don't feel empty as some say they feel like something is missing. i was told by my gyn that i could go into early menopause but its unlikely since i only had a partial. definitely consult your doc, ask lots of questions about it. be prepared with your questions before you go so as to not leave anything out. ask about endometriosis, cyst, fibroids all that good stuff. EDUCATE yourself. know your own body and do lots of research because doctors go on generlizations. they'll medicate you in a minute. make sure the response your doc gives is one you can live with.
