I was diagnosed with a complex ovarian cyst 3 weeks ago but have had pain for 6 weeks that is not getting better...I am 39 years old and have had a hysterectomy (4 years ago). The cyst is 3X4 cms on my left ovary and I can only assume is applying pressure to my bowels and bladder as there have been changes in behaviour. I am bloated all the time and I have had constant (24/7) heartburn for 3 weeks.
I have a follow up ultrasound 3 weeks but do not want to be on pain killers all day everyday and I am very converned that this is more than just a cyst that will go away on its own. My doctor isn't seeing an urgency.
I would love to hear other recommendations for my suggestions. Thx.
I had a 6cm cyst on my left ovary found at the beginning of August. They rechecked me after 4 weeks and it had shrunk to 4 cm. It is normal to watch it as they usually do shrink. They also drew blood, a CA-125 on me that told them it wasn't cancer. Hope this helps.
