      Must admit I'm worried that they will end up doing that......doc said mine was size of melon in June......feel like I'm going to explode at moment......my doc was good at explaining things, but there are always things you forget about......how long have you had your cyst and how did you find you had it?

    Hi, Im not sure how long i've had this but i've been having pains on and off since i was about 20,now im 49 however it got worse about 5 months ago.  I went to the doctors and she referred me to have an internal scan and that is when they found the 11cm cyst, it is pressing against my bowels. Lucky enough I have gone private and dont have to wait long until my operation. They gave me an option, to either take out my overy and cyst or a full hysterectomy and they have informed me that there are a few small cysts on my other overy. My final decision is to have a full hysterectomy as this means I wont have to go in again should anything else need removing in the future. I am going seeing a gynacologist support team on Wednesday so hopefully this will be useful.

      I didn't know I had it.....went to docs for headaches.......and said I had pain in my side...she said they weren't linked, but asked her to look anyway.....she felt around and asked if I'd had fibroids.....said not as far as I knew....sent for ultrasound....he saw large cyst and said I had to see gp ASAP......got fast tracked and then had MRI to confirm.....it's nothing sinister apparently........just feel huge......was going to go private, but don't have ins or £4000.........so have had to wait.....still not too llong.....but still scared......

    I have had to do alot of research myself as I have had no info but from what I have found a Hysterectomy is seen as very much a last resort. Seems if it aint broke don't fix it is very much the attitude

    Take care

    Hi Mandy, 

    I had had a full abdominal hysterectomy 6 weeks ago and I'm also post menopausal but was told I don't need HRT as I'm post menopausal.  I think it depends on your age as I'm 51.   Had a few hot flushes and night sweats but they seem to have settled down a bit now.
