Cysts

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi, I had a hysterectomy nearly 4 years ago as I had suffered for 18 years with ovarian cysts, Endometreosis and irregular periods, I had numerous operations but a hysterectomy was the final straw. I have been getting the same pains I suffered with previously and wondered if cysts could return or even the endometriosis. I want to go and see my doctor but didn't want to waste their time if it was not cysts. Can anyone help me? Thanks.

    Were your ovaries removed? This is an Oophorectomy and is not part of a hysterectomy. If you still have them then yes, the cysts can recur.

      Yes I have had my ovaries removed along with everything else due to the severity of the endometriosis and the amount of cysts. But I had cysts and endometriosis in my bowel too so I was just panicking that the cysts could return. So not sure what these pains could be.

      Google ovarian remnant syndrome and see if the symptoms fit. Very occasionally part of an ovary is left.

      Ask your GP if they can refer you for a scan of your bowel to reassure you.
