    I got rid of both of mine in August and good riddance! I am glad they are gone, they also removed my tubes. I feel better now than I have in a year. The surgery was a breeze and within a month I could not even tell I had surgery. I am relieved to know I will no longer have to worry about having anymore cysts. Good luck to you what ever you decide.

      Thank you for your reply so helpful to hear everyone else's stories because things like this is hard to explain how bad it is.. So thank you! But sounds like you've been through hell and back to my 5 months seems pathetic to everyone else's hahha. I realise the risks of not having a family possibly in the future but this has cost me my life I really need help I feel like the NHS are a joke I was told by one doctor I was imaging it because I didn't have obvious things like cancer it was awful sent my blood pressure up to 240 and I'm only tiny! I hope you carry on to get support and thank you again for your advise it means so much being able to relate my problems to people when I'm like this so I'll be posting in a few months time helping everyone else and be better again! Thanks again x
