I am 29 and have been diagnosed with a 10cm simple - ish ovarian cyst on my left side.
I have seen the consultant and I am waiting for my operation. Yesterday my CA125 blood results came back as normal.
Before my ultrasound scan revealed the cyst, I was being investigated for IBS. I have terrible swelling in my stomach, dull ache in my lower back, bowel problems and I am often unable to finish meals.
All of these symptoms have been really uncomfortable along with occasional pain in my stomach. However I am now at the point where I can not eat at all. Since Sunday, everything I have eaten has resulted in the urgent need to visit the loo. I feel very very sick, drowsy and have a terrible upset stomach
All of this has resulted in me being really anxious, to the point where I had my first ever, quite large and scary, panic attack last night
I am wondering if anyone with a large cyst is suffering from bowel problems too? I know this is a personal question but I can't seem to find much linking the two together
