I have recently been diagnosed with a large (watermelon sized) cyst. I had thought it was fat. But I have recently lost 4 stone in weight and still had a huge tummy - after losing 7 inches in my waist it stopped reducing in size even though I was still losing weight. Not dieting just now and the weight loss has stopped. Whew - never thought I woul be releived at that !
GP thought it was a hernia, but I went through a week of bad pain and the surgeon found the mass immediately on examination and I was sent to a gynacologist.
I am going in for an op on 9th Dec, removal of cyst, womb, both ovaries and omentectomy. Surgeon said he will remove appendix too if it is attached.
I have had blood tests to check for cancer markers - so fingers crossed.
My sister has had a few cysts up to mandarin sized and my first cousin has one that was football sized, so hopefully mine isn't cancerous.
I am am pretty scared about the op and the pain during recovery.
