Taken into hospital with suspected appendicitis last Wednesday, to be told on Thursday I have a cyst on each ovary 6cm and 8cm that was probably causing the pain. Sent home for 'watchful waiting' for 6 weeks on painkillers. (initially told I would be having op until I saw consultant who dismissed the idea at 4pm after being nil by mouth all day incase).
I was told very little at hospital and have had to research for myself on internet.
still waiting to find out about blood tests taken today back at my GP as hospital did not deal with infection showing up in first blood tests. Also had CA125 test last week - no answer for that yet.
discovered that i have had many sypmtoms as described on nhs choices website but no-one asked me about - despite having history taken so many times.
what is your experience of watchful waiting? did things improve or not?
