I had my right ovary removed in June due to a large cyst. However, let me back up and start from the beginning.
December 1, 2011 I opted for the IUD, Mirena. Had I known it was so painful to insert it, I'd never have gotten one. I immediately had abdominal and since that day, my abdomen has not been the same.
Three months later I had the IUD removed. I was sure that once I had it removed if go back to normal. That was not the case. I had a vaginal ultrasound done and discovered there was a large cyst on my right ovary.
After another 3 months I went into surgery and once again I thought by removing what was painful would take me back to my normal state-pain free and happy. I was wrong yet again.
4 months after surgery I still have pain on my right side. I had another ultrasound done today and my dr called with results: fluid build up where the ovary was.
Can anyone tell me what that means? And better yet, can anyone give me an idea of what's wrong with me?
Here are my symptoms: lower back pain, pain lower right hand side of abdomen, pain traveling down legs, tingling and pain that travels down to my feet (I really only notice this when I'm trying to sleep, which I'm not getting good sleep anymore)
I just need more information before I allow my dr to do exploratory surgery
