Two weeks ago, my PCP: said that i had a kidney stone since i had a moderate amount of blood in my urinalysis. Sent me home with pain meds and told me if I didn't pass it in a 3 days to come back and see him. It didn't pass, went back to see him and he scheduled a CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis that same day, and the report said I had an ovarian cyst on my right ovary. PCP had a transvaginal ultrasound scheduled with my OB/GYN and found out i have a tilted uterus, fibroids, and a 4.5 cm Ovarian cyst on my right ovary. This pain comes and goes, and the pain goes from the left to the right, right to the left and in my lower back. My mother had endometriosis at my age (44) and had a hysterectomy. This is my 2nd cyst, 1st one ruptured from my left side about 9 years ago.
Question-- what is better in the long run? Just removal of the cyst via laparaoscopy, removal of ovary leaving one behind and my uterus so i don't go into menopause, which i am not in yet, or just get it over with and have a hysterectomy? I do not have any children and at my age, i'm not sure if I want kids or even have children. I am single, and have yet to find their father.
Anyone have some suggestions for me? I have a Dr's Appt this coming Tuesday in the a.m. and would love to have some input by some of you ladies who have been through this. I'm scared to death.
