Three weeks ago, an ultrasound scan revealed a 25cm cyst on my left ovary. I have had absolutley no symtoms other than a large distended stomach, but I was away travelling for a few months and I thought it was just my diet until the ultrasound. Three weeks later, I still have no symptoms other than a very big tummy! I have had an MRI scan last week and I had my appointment with my gyneocologist this morning. I have been told I will require surgery and due to the size of the cyst, key hole is unlikely. My consultant also said they may have to remove my left ovary due to the size of the cyst... I am only 22 so I am very very worried about this!! I have a few questions, which if anyone could answer, I will be very grateful!
Has anyone had a cyst of a similar size before who could tell me what happened?
How painful is the operation and how long does it take to recover post op?
I have been told I am being referred as urgent, but I still may be waiting up to 6 weeks. Is this normal / have people experienced their appointments being brought forward?
If i do loose my ovary, how will this affect my fertility? Will i still be able to get pregnant with only one ovary?
Thank you in anticipation!
