Hemorrhagic cyst

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hey I need some help and answers from anyone who has experienced this!! I just went to the Er on Thursday with excruciating pain in my right lower abdomen.  I thought it was appendicitis, but after having an ultrasound I was told I had a large hemorrhagic ovarian cyst ( 5 x 6.5 cm ) that had intermittent torsion.  They were going to operate but were concerned about doing surgery because I have had 2 c-sections and an abdominal hysterectomy and were worried about scar tissue.  The torsion released and I left the hospital on pain meds and followed up with my obgyn today.  I have been in constant pain, have difficulty walking, I feel bloated in my lower abdomen and now it feels like the pain is traveling up my right side of my flank.  My ob is hoping my cyst will rupture or start to decrease in size.  Because of my scar tissue.  I have a repeat ultrasound sound on Thursday and unless the cyst goes down or ruptures he scheduled me for surgery on Tuesday of next week.   IS THIS NORMAL??  Will my cyst reduce size in a matter of 3 days??? Very confused and in a lot of pain and discomfort,   But at least the excruciating pain is less now that it’s not twisted and blood is flowing.   Anyone else experience this????

    I have had 2 hemoragic cysts and they both ruptured during my periods. I went to an obgyn specialist who confirmed at these cysts tend to rupture during our periods. He also confirmed that the lump on my c section scar was scar tissue which was a relief. Usually they do a repeat ultrasound a few days after your next period to see if it went away or if surgery is needed.

    Hi missy28816

    I am sorry to hear of your unfortunate circumstances. I'm in a similar situation and from the research I've been conducting it seems like a lot of women are subjected to this painful nightmare which is what it is. I'm currently in recovering from a total laparoscopic hysterectomy. They removed my Uterus based on the facts I've been given by the Dr's over a 3-4 year period of extreme pain on my left side. I've had a MRI scan and Ultrasound. All the doctors advised was I have scarred tissue (adhesions) and small fybroids in my Uterus. So because of that I opted for the surgery but when I came out of surgery I was told I had a cyst on my left ovary and it burst during surgery. I lost a lot of blood they considered blood transfusion. The 45min OP took 4 hours. The blood vessels was stuck around the scarred tissue and Uterus and scarred tissue was stuck on my left ovary and Uterus. It was very complicated and the recovery at home after being discharged after 4 days in hospital is very painful. I've nearly callapsed a few times from dizzyness. I've been seriously constipated from all the meds they give you. It's horrendous. Now after all of that I may have to have my ovaries removed because I'm getting the left pelvic pain I got before the surgery. So nothing has been resolved. I was miss -diagnosed mis informed so many times and turned away. The Dr actually told me that he thinks the cyst came about in between my last period and the surgery which is bulls**t because I've felt this pain for 3-4 years. I do hope everything works out for you. I do not have any trust or faith in the doctors or NHS system but we are bound by it unfortunately have to rely on them. But be strong and firm and trust your own judgement.
