Hi There There are so many reasons for fluctuating pain including ovarian cysts, irritable bowel, constipation, stress, bladder spasms. It is important to follow up with your doctor.
I've been dealing with ovarian cysts since 08-09.I was told I have chocolate cysts on my ovaries. I've tried the nuvaring as means to shrink the cysts and I was feeling better the only downside is I would continuously keep putting the nuvaring in and skipped periods. I've had pain on my right side, pain under my belly button, gas, bloated, constipation, back pain, heavy periods,tenderness near my c section cut and severe gas and gas pains can't have a bowel movement w/o a laxative.
I don't understand the term 'cross hatch' and it's pertinence to cancer rule out. But I can tell you that ovarian cysts do go along with the symptoms you speak of. Certain kinds of cysts can even throw off your bodies hormonal balance, block other organs from working properly, even cause constipation and shortness of breath. I think a more open minded physician might be in order. Try to find a female, who understands what a womans pains really feel like.
I have ovarian cysts which the doctor said arent too big, though I think they are 3 of them. I was wondering if it is common for such severe pain down my left leg? I cant even sleep. I am about to start my period, but havent yet. I'm such a worry wart I think about blood clots and fear the worst. Though I dont see any swelling or redness anywhere. I just cant believe how painful it is to sit, lay down, etc. So I guess I am just curious if cysts can cause extreme leg pain?
In January of 2009, i had emergency surgery for an ovarian cysts on my right ovary. Apparently the cyst was 5 inches and twisted around my ovary. After the surgery, i had no pain up until June of that year. I had many ultrasounds done that confirmed i had small cysts. In April of 2010, i had laproscopic surgery to have a look to see what was going on. The doctor told me after that my ovary had dropped down due to a cyst and that my right tube was blocked.
I am 17 years old and for the past 4 years I have been having problems with severe pain in lower abdomen. I have had many 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 have been dealing with Ovarian Cysts of and on for the past 5 years. They topically just come and go never have I been in pain from them and the never got any bigger than a centimeter. I just had an ultra sound that showed a large black mass attached to my right ovary. I have an IUD in place and for the past month I have had abdominal pain ranging from sever to managable. I also have bouts of nausea and constipation.
Hello, Most of the time ovarian cysts rupture because there is too much pressure on the lower abdomen, or because the ovary tissue has become so thin, so when the cyst grows larger, it causes the ovary to burst. The pressure can be due to sudden movements, sport activities, sex and also a very bad constipation. While on vacation try to avoid any strenuous and sudden movements.
My gynea removed the Mirena IUD coil as it was suspected that it was the cause off the cysts. My file at the gynea is filled with reported cases of ovarian cysts, all on the right ovary - the gynea counted 7 in total from 2009 till November 2011 - and those were only the cases that were reported to her. I remember 3 other cases since 2009 where I had cysts that ruptured (by now I know the pain) while I was at home. My question is - what can be done to fix this?
I went to my OB and she took a polyp off my cervix, did a uterine biopsy and ordered my first (of many) vaginal US. It showed complex bilateral ovarian cysts, enlarged ovaries and fibroids. I have had 5 serial US since the first in Sept 07 and I feel that I am nowhere closer to finding out what is wrong with me than I was 6 months ago. The cysts have gotten bigger (not alot), I still have some pain on and off throughtout the month and my period is more irregular.
I had an ultrasound Tuesday because of abdominal pain with a long history of ovarian cysts. They found a 5.5cm complex cystic/solid right adnexal mass. It states the differential diagnosis includes Endometrioma, complex hemorrhagic cyst, or cystic ovarian neoplasm. I have had 3 surgeries in the past to remove chocolate, simple, and deremoid cysts. I've approximately have had 20 or so either resolve or rupture on there own.
Ultrasound is showing clear cysts, no mass, 2 cysts on each ovary, this is the the first time I have missed my mentrual cycle. Some pain on my lower right side, back. I am advised now to see a dr. for my bowels... my symtons do not include fever, vomiting, diarrhea. I have constant tenderness in my ovary and naval area, a dull pinching sensation, constant dull ache, and feel full quickly when I eat...
I've gone 4 days with no pain, and the last time I had the pelvic pain was the day I started spotting. I just wondered if this sounds like ovarian cysts issues or if I might have something else that they are not seeing. It seems to be going away, but every time I think that, I feel the mysterious discomfort again and start getting nervous. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's nothing major.
How many of us with Dx Ovarian Cysts also have been dx Hypothyroidism? This may have been asked before, if so.. sorry for the repeat, but I missed it.. I have both. I was dx. with Hypo. 10-15 years ago.. Had Ovarian Cyst dx. last year..
They can cause constipation by obstructing the bowl, and constipation could cause diarrhea, which could explain your symptoms. When I had a cyst earlier this month, I also had a problem with peeing. I never felt like I had to go, I just new I had to go because the pain would get worse and I could fell pressure where my kidney is on the side where the cyst was.
On the ovarian cysts forum, there may be more of us dealing with those kinds of things. Do the doctors say if the cysts are complex or functional?
Hi and welcome to the site. Although 99% of ovarian cysts are benign, you are very wise seeking medical attention. I would suggest that you go to a gyn/onc. They are specialists and have seen everything. With your family history, this would be the most sensible thing to do. The pain could be from a rupture or even torsion. Please seek a 2nd opinion with the gyn/onc. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Welcome to the site. Just to let you know, 99% of ovarian cysts are BENIGN. Ovarian cysts mimic ovca symptoms. Other symptoms include lower back pain and GI problems such as acid reflux, heart burn, constipation and diarria(sp). You are in my thoughts and prayers.
