      Yes same, I also have a uterine fibroid which they will be removing. They are taking my right ovary and both tubes all done laproscopic. I'm 47 and have children so I do not need them anymore. Symptom wise, I have been nauseous almost every day. I get twinges of pain on my right side where the cyst is. I get fullness in my bottom stomach area and lower back pain.  I'm scare about the surgery but I know it has to come out. My mom had one the size of a grapefruit and it burst! I do not want that to happen.

      Hannah did they schedule your surgery yet? I found out via transvaginal ultrasound on March 13th I. had two different sonogram Drs confirm it's a dermoid.

      I went to my Gyn on March 13th she did the transvaginal scan. I went to the Drs since I was bleeding for about 3 weeks non stop. My Dr told me the bleeding is from the fibroid. But in the transvaginal scan they found the 2cm complex cyst. My Dr sent my scans to two different, reputable radiologists, they both said it was a dermoid cyst. I told my Dr I want it out asap. Three weeks later I'm scheduled for surgery on April 9th. I cannot wait. I'm nervous and scared but I know it has to come out, it will not go away and I do not want to end up like my mom did, hers burst it was the size of a grapefruit. I haven't been able to sleep and I have been a neevius wreck and my emotions have been off the charts. Are you in the US?

      Yes I did read that, these Dermoid cysts are made up of "Master Cells" which grow teeth, hair, skin etc. I think they throw your body completely off. I get very nauseous in the morning and in between meals as well.  But I'm very anxious about the surgery. I'm thankful that the cyst is still small and they can do it laproscopically.i have been told that the recovery is easier. We will see.
