If this post helps one person I will be thrilled!
I've just got back from my 2nd Gynae appoint and I have to say there was a point during the appoint that I could of actually burst into tears!!!
Cyst discovered in 2010 during pregnancy, no discussion and no follow up. During pregnancy in 2015 no cyst mentioned so I figured it had gone. In Sept 2016 I start to get daily period pain, dull aches always in my lower right quadrant (cyst on right side) radiating down my pelvis and around the back sometimes. I have had 3 really bad days nearly ending up in A&E and now I live on daily painkillers. I had an ultrascan and she said that the DERMOID cyst has grown from 3 - 4.5 cm's.
The doctors all say the cyst wouldn't cause any pain so they booked me for an mri, when the results came back the radiologist noted the ovarian cyst with 'some haemorrhage' and that they suggest an ultrascan.
Skip forward to today and I meet with another surgeon. He looks at the written MRI report that I took with me and he says 'Oh that's better than we first thought - It's not dermoid its filled with blood, it's probably GONE BY NOW!!!!' I could not beleive my ears, i've been waiting for this appoint so much as I really have to belive that this pain IS the cyst.
He said surgery isn't required and even if it was still there it'll cause me no bother.
The only turning point was when I started to explain how dissapointed I was as I was led to believe it was dermoid, done all the research and prepared myself for the post op. I asked him please, have you not got my mri pictures to double check.... He finally looked on the comp and the call i'd made the week before (I've rang every week since Dec 30th) had worked and the mri was there for him to see.
He finally said I think it might be dermoid, and totally changed his attitude and basically asked me what I WANTED TO DO, my reply was to go on the waiting list and have a scan before if possible. I mean if he thinks it's gone then lets see!
Keep on at these doctors ladies!!!!
