In Nov 11, of 2015 i had surgery to remove a dermoid tumor that had begun as a cyst, i was bleeding internally and it was wrapped around my fallopian tube and ovary. The tumor was around 4 1/2 inches. The doctors at the hospital had never taken me seriously.. for the past two years i had been to the er due to extreme abdominal pain, and theyd just diagnose me with constipation. Finally they did an ultrasound and saw the tumor. That day i was in so much pain that even after the morphine that they gave me at the hospital i felt terrible pain. And yet they sent me home with hydrocodone to take for the pain. After 4 hours and three hydrocodones later i returned to the ER because i just could not stand the pain. The doctor there then proceeded to threaten to call the police because i had taken too much hydrocodone and that was "drug abuse". I guess he finally saw how much pain i was in and decided to admit me in the hospital. They couldnt find a doctor to do the surgery at first. The first one they found didnt want to do my surgery because she thought i was too young to lose an ovary. A day later they found a doctor to do it. He did my surgery and everything was good. Two months later, today i have an infection on one of my incisions that just wont go away. And i found out that i have another cyst, aparrently they saw it during the surgery but forgot to mention it to me. I feel pain on my left side every now and then and im worried that this cyst is growing. My left ovary is all i have and now theres a cyst on it. I recently turned 18 in november so i'm worried. My doctor is not taking me seriously saying that its just going to go away but im not so sure. Im worried that i wont be able to have children if i lose my last ovary..
Has this ever happened to anyone? Is there any way they can remove the cyst without the ovary?
Btw:sorry for the rambling im just worried..
