So my last period was abnormal. It was 2 days of brown spotting only when I wiped. Then one day of normal/heavy bleeding and ripping cramps, followed by two more days of brown spotting when I wiped. 

after that I had cramps just about daily, very mild and managable cramps. 

My period was due Monday November 4th. 

However! last Friday I ended up in the er with severe ripping cramps again. It turns out I had a baseball to large grapefruit sized ovarain cyst and I had surgery on Saturday to remove it and my ovary. During the exam the dr asked me multiple times if I had ever been told that I had an enlarged uterus (because it was enlarged). No I haven't. 

Anyway over the course of Friday and Saturday I had a ct scan, an abdominal and transvaginal ultrasound and surgery. I also had multiple blood tests but was never told anything about them other than my blood cell count was normal. 

I spotted a tiny but on Monday and slightly more on Tuesday because I overdid it but today nothing! So my period is late. Is it normal to miss one after surgery? And why would my uterus be enlarged?

thahis for reading.

I've never had personal experience with this, but I have heard that cycles can be disrupted by things such as surgery. Other than pregnancy, I'd never heard of an enlarged uterus so I did a little google search and this is what it came up with: Hopefully that can give you a few ideas? It sounds like your blood count was normal so you should be able to cross a few things off the list.
