    Hi, I know how stressful all this must be with you. But try and relax best you can as if you are in any pain it will probably make it worse.

    i have had loads of cyst, some which come and go and a few that I have had to had operation to remove them.

    dont worry about the ca125 test as this can be raised very high because you have a cyst.... I was the same because of my results I was so stressed.

    ca125 test can also be high because of other gyne problems such as endometriosis, cyst etc it doesn't have to be because of cancer which people always straight away think is the reason. Most of the time it isn't because of that from my exerperince and what many consultants and other patients have experienced too, but it is always correct procedure for the doctors to carry that out so try not to worry.

    i have had many fluid filled cyst and I have had a complex cyst that eventually turned into a fluid filled cyst and burst. I first found out I had cyst and other gyne issues because I was in so much pain in 2013and was rushed into a&he where I had a dermoid cyst which grow very very big. Mine was 9cm, and I didn't know I had it or any other problems until I ended up in a&he. However it destroyed my ovary and tube on my right side and I had to have it removed. 

    i started red having problems again and I had another operation in February where they removed a small cyst of my left ovary and one was near my bladder, but they also removed a fibroid tumour.. They are none cancerous but can cause a lot of pain and grow big.

    the fact the doctor are watching your cyst is a good things, but most cyst do require a watch and wait as some do go away, it can take a few period cycles. But as long as ur not in pain and they are doing scans then that's good. 

    Sounds like ur going in the right direction. 

    My my advice is to make a note how ur bleeding is and any pain etc, and take it with you to ur appointments, even not down headache or sickness or even mood swings it's all worth it.

    try not to get stressed sounds like ur having some answers tomorrow. Please let us know how u get on.... And if I can give u some advice on my personal experiences to help then let me know... As I could write loads more ha ha...
