Ovarian cyst.. How long to wait?
Iv been experiencing pain on my right hand side since about November. It started off as more of a nagging feeling rather then pain but I experienced alot of nausea. Every now and again I would get a sharp pain shooting through my side that would last about 10 seconds and would cripple me. I went to my doctor and the end of January and she took my of my contraception, iv been on the depo injection for 12months, and booked me an ultrascan in case it was a ovarian cyst. 6 weeks later and Iv had my scan and it couldn't of come sooner, the pain has got even worst in my right hand side, the nausea has got stronger and I cant have sex with my boyfriend as the pain is unbearable. At my scan yesterday the nurse said she could see a cyst on my right ovary and it was inflamed thats why the internal scan was hurting me too but she said she couldnt give me any more information as the scans cant show you that much but it maybe a twisted cyst or it may not even be the cyst causing me pain but maybe my apendix. So now Iv got to wait until the 21st March (13 days after my scan) to get my results from my normal doctor. Now i'm really worried as I know its a cyst but I have no other information. If it was something bad would she have told me then and there or is this standard practice? I think she may have knocked it more with the internal scan as Im in double the pain I was before, lying down it even hurts and going to the toilet gives me the feeling like something is going to burst inside of me. Should i try and get another doctors appointment and see if i can get something for the pain? Any replies would be really appreciated!Report this
