ovarian-cysts

Recently I have been having very severe abdominal pain to the point that I cannot walk, back pain, increased urination, bloating, constipation, fatigue, weight loss, and no appetite. I have never had all these symptoms with a ovarian cysts. I went to the emergency room recently and all they would tell me is I had a bladder infection which I took antibiotics for but am still experiencing all this symptoms.
My symptoms are what is bothersome, spotting between periods, pressure in abdomen and pelvis, short of breath, abdominal discomfort and feeling bloated, nausea and sometimes loss of appetite, hard time losing weight, feel full all over when I wake up and excessive gas. I have read symptoms of ovarian cancer and of course it seems I have pretty much all of them so now I flashback to that unexpected pregnancy result last year thinking was I really pregnant or God forbid it's ovarian cancer!!
I've had severe abdominal pain for about week now with bloating, loss of appetite, frequent urination, hard to sit in chair because of the severity of pain. Had a CT scan done on 2-5-04, shows a cyst on each ovary, one the size of an orange the other the size of a tangerine. Had an hysterectomy in '88. My OB/GYN has put me on birth control, one in the morning, one at night plus blood work, CA-125.
in one month (without dieting) * lack of appetite * swollen abdomen (even with a weight loss of 23 lbs. since July, the last 15 of which weren't intentional, my tummy is so large that my pants I wore before the weight loss are tight!) * burning on urination * extreme debilitating fatigue * nausea * severe constipation alternating with diarrhea * vague abdominal pain and sharper pain in my lower left abdomen (where one of the cysts are located.
I've had a transvaginal ultrasound that showed 2 functional cysts and what appeared to be a ruptured cyst, though I never felt any great discomfort from that (unless the uti symptoms were that). Maybe I had a uti and coincidentally my ovarian cysts started causing issues at the same time? Anyway, it's been a month and a half and I still feel vague pelvic discomfort, like below my pubic hair line. It sort of feels like burning sometimes and it comes and goes, doesn't affect my sleep.
In the meantime, I already know that I have a tipped uterus, and have been experiencing imense amounts of back pain, part of it I attribute to the weight loss that I have indured due to an extremely affected loss of appetite, but I wanted to know if any of you have had any experience with this type of situation, and if extremely large cysts and a tipped uterus could cause the cysts to put enough pressure on the colon and spine to be able to cause the intensity of back pain that I am deali

nausea (there for months) loss of appetite (on and off but continually for the past month) foggy head, hot flashes, feeling of fever but not really a fever, chills (could these be my hormones because the cyst is interfering with my ovary function?) dull ache in lower back and legs diarrhea at times (comes out of nowhere) just started bleeding after missing a period for a couple months but I stopped taking my pill because I thought it was causing nausea, this might have brought on the bleeding.
Hi, how many of you ever heard of more than one case of large ovarian cyst removal (4 inches or bigger) where only the cyst itself was removed but not the ovary? what kind of cysts were removed (complex or functional or dermoid or whatever)?
Her symptoms to this point include low grade fever, vaginal bleeding, sharp menstral cramping pains, loss of appetite, gas. My sister started to cry and my mom sounded like she wanted to start to plan her funeral. Does anyone have a positive spin to this situation? What else could these two cysts be? I had read on line tonight that many times liver cysts are benign and detected because of some other symptoms relating to something else. My mom turns 72 next Friday.
I am having severe abdominal pain, gas, bloating, nausea, occasional vomiting, appetite loss and severe fatigue/tiredness. I am waiting for my ultrasound and blood test results from this morning. My grandmother has had cancer since she was 36. She started with cervical cancer, then it spread to her ovaries and her breast. I am so concerned right know. I am 32 y/o and have three kids. I cry so easily, does ovarian canceer cause hormone imbalances that would cause me to be so emotional.
If you Goodle for images of ovarian cysts, some of them look like human organs themselves. The majority of them are benign and even the small ones can cause loads of symptoms (or none at all). Cysts CAN form rapidly especially the fluid filled ones. My own cyst was considerably larger on the day of surgery than on the day it was discovered (less than a month between events). We've heard of cysts as large as footballs and basketballs on this forum...
Let's relax and see what we can figure out. First of all 99% of cysts are benign and cancer is really rare. It isn't that uncommon to have multiple cysts and they could be normal follicular cycts related tp ovulation and possible you didn't ovulate and the cyst is hanging around causing these symptoms. Do you have access to a doctor or ob/gyn other than at the college health services, through you dads insurance or something.
and that could be your problem,and innocent cyst can cause alot of symptoms.I also had alot of burping,appetite loss,which turned out to be gallstones (just had surgery month ago for that) and now still have chronic pelvic/abdominal/thigh pain.In two months I'm having another laparscopy, gyno dr is thinking endometriosis..which has similar symptoms too.It isnt always cancer. For months I was on here 24/7 researching my symptoms..which pointed to ovc..and I had alot of anxiety,and I still do.
Three months ago end of August 2010 she was experiencing 24/7 nausea and loss of appetite. This lasted for about 2 weeks on and off. She only vomited once. She saw a gastroenterologist, he did an endoscopy and she was treated with pariet for a bacterial infection called helicobacta pylori (i think this is how it is spelt). This helped her immensely and her symptoms disappeared as a result.
I'm 36 years old and wanted to ask you if you think this could be ovarian cancer? The nausea isn't always but on and off, the loss of appetite and the amount I can eat seems to stay they same every day and my stomach is bloated...
I was disgnosed with having Ovarian cysts just this week. I have two. One the size of and orange and one a tad smaller. Just within the last 4 days my stomach has began to protrude even more. I look like Im about 3 mths pregnant. My pain and symptoms have been typical. Peeing every 30 minutes (because mine is pressing on my bladder), abdominal cramps, protruding stomach, frequent uti's, no period, loss of appetite, nausea occasionally. I have it all.
I'm not sure about the lymph nodes but yes your thyroid could cause ovarian cysts. I have them and it is due to my Hashimoto's according to my OB/GYN.
I started noticing the vague symptoms when I was about 36. They were a bloated stomach, weight gain, loss of appetite, loose bowel movements,feeling tired and not as energetic as usual, also my underarms were sore when I would reach for something. As time went on I had fluid in my lungs also, and around my heart as well as in my tummy, they drained 7 liters of fluid at the time of surgey. I went to the hospital weighing 160lbs. and left weighing 124lbs.
I am now 35, 3 children and when i was diagnosed manic-depressive i was on prozac, wellbutrin and taking hi levels of prescription weight loss pills. I was losing my mind but i wasn't losing any weight! When my Psychatrist decided to try me on Topamax it was because of my anieity over my weight gain with the standard mood stabilizers. Within these past two years I have lost 38 pounds taking this medicine.
I fluctuate between a loss of 1-2 lbs but thats it....The workouts have reduced my cholest. and my Thyroid is norm. - my mean blood glucose is 101. When I was in my 20's I did a sugar test because I was having trouble with sugar in general - the test back then (coke syrup and blood tests) - showed that I had trouble absorbing sugar - basically it hung out in my blood stream a lot longer and I did not absorb it as fast. When I had my 2nd child in my mid 30's I became a gestational diabetic.
also have nodules on left lung and three in abdomen, as well as i discovered one on the left side of neck and left side groin. Severe weight loss, no appetite, severe flank pain, severe fatigue, gastro problems, my joints and bones hurt, and I lock up. i have swelling in my left hand constantly and have had several palsys in my face, etc. Tachycardia and short of breathe. I have alot going on. My labs are off the charts in some areas and negative in others.
In the meantime, I have referenced as much information as I can on this report and understand it to imply the possibility of ovarian cancer.
Severe nausea, weakness, hard time sleeping and even if i do sleep i feel like i wake up exhausted, loss of appetite, pain in my lower right side that has now spread to over my bladder. They gave me a prescription for ofloxacin but im skeptical to take it. how do i figure this out?
They are specialists in women's gyn issues (not just cancer). They have seen it all. Although 99% of ovarian cysts, tumors and masses are benign, please do not ignore your symptoms. Ovarian cysts can cause a whole host of symptoms including gi problems, lower back and hip pain, fluctuating hormonal levels (which can cause their own set of problems). Please get the 2nd opinion.
