Ovarian Cyst - When will the bleeding and pain stop - over 6 weeks of bleeding
I had an IUI done on Feb 8. March 6 I had sever pains in my groin area - had an ultra sound done on March 8 when we found out there was no heart beat. March 14th I started my miscarriage. The pain has been agonizing and when I complained my doc told me it is normal. April 8 I ended up in the ER after sever pain on passing out borderline. I was told I have 5cm cyst on my right ovary and not to worry it will go away by itself. Also they found out I had UTI and became anemic since I have been bleeding non stop since March 14. I am still in horrible paralyzing pain. Taking pain killers which do not really help. I am light headed and get dizzy a lot. Bowel movement is a nightmare. I just don't know what to do anymore. I am in pain and bleeding for over 6 weeks and all I get from my doc is - it will go away. Please help. My boss is just about done with me because I miss work due to not being able to drive or sit. My wedding is in 4 weeks and I am terrified that I will still be in this pain.
First I want to say I'm sorry for your loss. :( Second, MY goodness, I cannot believe your dr is just letting this happen. IF I were you, I'd seek a 2nd opinion. Bleeding for 6 weeks solid is an awful long time..no wonder you're anemic. Adding the pain that you've been in, something needs to be done!!
Seek a 2nd opinion...sometimes cysts do NOT go away by themselves..but I think more importantly you shouldn't be bleeding this long. You may need a D&C. I really hope you get some help soon. Best of luck to you!!
Also I wanted to add..your bowel pain is probably due to the cyst. I have one on each ovary about an inch and a half in size and sometimes they hurt sooo bad when I'm trying to have a bowel movement.
Thank you ladies so much for your comments.
I did request for the medical records and found a different doctor to do a follow up ultrasound. It was originally a 5.8cm cyst and as of May 1st it was a "4.8 cm complex right adnexal mass with multiple loculations"
Doc did advise me the bleeding was ab normal and he put me on the pill for 1 month to see if it will help. Took my first pill on May 1st and today there is hardly any bleeding at all!!! Pain from cramping is still there but I am walking and functioning much better. I almost cried with relief when he first saw me and pressed from the outside saying "even without the ultrasound I can feel a big mass and understand why you are in so much pain". It is amazing how different this doc is and how he listened to every little thing and worry I had. I have a followup ultrasound on June 14th when we hope the cyst will decrease substantially.
There is no need for D&C since everything is clean - no pregnancy residue. The pain and bleeding are a direct result of the cyst and from his calculations I also got my period the week prior to my visit which intensified everything. I always had a painful period but nothing like what I am going through. Bowel movement is also getting better. Looks like things are heading in the right direction. I just wish this would have been over by my wedding but according to doc it will take at least 2 more months before this will completely dissolve - better than nothing right?
Again, thank you for the kind words, comments and suggestions. Wishing you all the best!!!
Yayy, so glad things are better!! And I'm soo glad you found a different doctor..sounds like this one's a keeper!! lol TY for keeping us posted. When you're on here offering advice, I dont know about alot, but I and I know others actually care what's going on and are happy when someone keeps in touch. I'm soo glad things are slowly getting better for you and you're right, it's better than nothing!! Congratulations on your wedding! Wishing you all the best in the world! :D
Thank you again. It means a lot to have people that have either been through something like this or just understand and care :) I am def keeping this doc for good and hope to get all better real soon :)
