Going to the OB today for probable cyst....

I'm about a week out from AF right now and, like Nicolle (wannabemommy), I've been having a ton of pain on my lower right side (and no evidence of appendicitis symptoms) for the past 3 days. I had it some a few days before O...it went away and then came back with a vengeance 3 days ago. I know there's really nothing they can do about cysts, but the pain is really getting to me and I at least need to see how big this thing is and will probably have to keep watching it. I get cysts fairly often, but they don't usually hurt this long....unless they're bad. I hope to God it's a cyclic one that goes away with an AF or 2, and not one that'll keep growing. I've had those too, and wound up having surgery. Turns out I had 4 of them and one of them had burst...not fun! We're going on a trip in 3 weeks too. I don't want to be in pain. :(

Anyway, any prayers/good thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks!

So, yep...it's a cyst. Not very big though; he didn't even measure it. But he did see a bit of free-flowing fluid, which probably means that the cyst leaked a little. Guess it's just one of those fun, painful cysts I gotta deal with until it dissolves.

He measured my uterine lining, too, and saw one area that was pretty thick...around 16-17mm. Not sure what that means though. Maybe a heavy period coming? Oh, lucky me. :/

Oh, and I got to learn a new fun "fact of the day" about myself......he looked at my left ovary also and discovered it is located almost completely under my uterus. I dunno if it's always been there, but, there it is....I'm officially a weirdo! LOL! :D

Anyway, thank goodness the cyst wasn't too big and there was no twisting or anything. Hopefully it'll dissolve soon after AF comes. Phew!

So glad to hear it's not big and there isn't any reason to be concerned! Hopefully it dissolves soon as you can get feeling back to normal. I also don't know what a thick uterine means.. but it must not be at all bad if he didn't say anything else. =] What does it mean that your ovary is under your uterus? Is it just nothing different or does it affect TTC or something?

Ouch! I hope you are feeling better soon. I've had a few cysts myself. Have you found that it helps to prop your feet up a bit? Such as you are flat on the couch and your feet are on the arms of the couch, for example. Sometimes that helps, so I thought I'd throw that out there. ((HUGS))

No, the location of my ovary probably doesn't mean anything because I have 5 kids...it's probably always been there, but no one ever said anything about it till now. Just kinda weird.

Anyway, yeah.....the pain is still there in varying intensities. Just hope it goes away for good....soon. I'm going outta town in 3 weeks.

Oh, it's always fun when they give you those little factoids about your body, isn't it? :D

I'm glad that they don't see anything to be too horribly wrong. I hope the cysts disappear and go away for a good long while (or forever would be nice). I hope that it's not a heavy period that is coming. :P

Dani, I would get things checked out more if I were you. I have had a couple times in my life that I have had a really thick lining and weird things with my ovaries. I had a laparoscopy both times. The last time was just this past August. I had 2 kids already and couldn't figure out why, at that point, I had 2 m/cs. Turns out both my ovaries were pinned down.

I know how bad you want another baby. I would totally get every test/procedure done to make sure everything is ok to have more. Just because you already have kids doesn't mean something has changed.
