All this wait and see is going to kill me.

Remember me?

I saw my gyno for the first time last Monday, for a pelvic, had urine and blood tests run. There was some discomfort and tenderness during the pelvic, and she scheduled me for a transvaginal ultrasound the following day. Also prescribed an antibiotic in case I had experienced a cyst bursting to prevent infection, and also gave me a script for Naprosyn 500mg.

The ultrasound the next day (Tuesday) was incredibly uncomfortable and at times painful, despite the tech's best efforts. I could she felt bad every time I winced and whimpered. Ended up with pangs the rest of the day, and even worse the day after. By end of day Wednesday, a sneeze had me doubled over crying. Eased up over the weekend, never entirely went away. taking the Naprosyn every twelve hours doesn't seem to help as much as I'd like.

Today was the start of my period AND my followup. So I went in feeling pretty pathetic anyway. I got a copy of my report so I can't forget anything.

Turns out the cyst on my right ovary, previously measured at 1.6 cm by an urgent care u/s tech, was now 3.1 cm with some internal echoes. May represent a hemorrhagic cyst. There's also apparently a small amount of free fluid in my cul-de-sac.

Current plan is another transvaginal ultrasound in three weeks to check for growth. Then I might be looking at a laproscopy, either for removal or to look for endo.

I'm glad I have gyno (a wonderful A.P.R.N.) who is listening to me and moving forward, but all this waiting and not knowing for sure is driving me nuts.

I have the same kind of pain... sneeze and be in a ball of pain for the rest of the day. It's a hard kind of pain to describe. Most people don't understand how a sneeze can completely ruin my day. I find the pain is even worse after ultrasounds. All of mine were inconclusive, but my second lap showed I had endo.

I have some serious problems on my right ovary that I am excited to have taken care of when I undergo surgery again in the fall.

Same thing happened to me in 2006 and I had a lap to remove the cyst.

Thinking of you and keep us posted. Sounds like you are in good hands.

i pretty much had the same results with my pre-diagnosis ultrasound. we waited about 6 months and being put on birth control to see if that would help, which didn't - but that's just me. good luck with everything!

ovarian cysts are the worst

hemmorhagic cysts really hurt and I was very nauseated with mine. I hope you feel better soon.
