    Here's my story. Some if it may apply to you, especially the part about the difference between what they teach in medical school about removing cysts and what they teach surgeons when they become a specialist in removing cysts. It's a HUGE difference and very important to know.

    I'm 39 and have been trying to get pregnant.

    In 2013 I had major surgery to repair my one remaining fallopian tube so I can get pregnant again. It's been about a year and a half and my belly is still numb in a large area surrounding the incision. This is because they cut through a nerve. I highly doubt it'll ever stop being numb.

    In December of 2014, on ovulation day, I started having excruciatingly sharp pain in the area of my only ovary. The pain shot into the tip of my hip bone and radiated along the top of my pelvic bone, down the back and ended at my tail bone area. It also shot down my thigh on the same side. I went to the ER many times and all they saw were two small ovarian cysts.

    About two months later, a horrible burning pain started and this was in addition to the already severely sharp pain I was experiencing. This burning pain caused the hip bone pain to radiate down the front if my pelvic bone and ended in my pubic bone.

    After being pawned off from Dr to Dr, I finally found the most wonderful OBGYN surgeon. She was worried and did another ultrasound. One of my cysts had all of a sudden gone from being one inch to the size of a lemon. In the ultrasound, it looked like it was a hemorrhagic cysts. But, with the severity of my pain, my surgeon was worried my ovary was possibly twisted and dying. So, she got me into surgery the very next day. This was now three months after the pain started.

    She went in laparoscopically and found a little bit of a lot of things. The cyst was fibrous, caused by endometriosis. My fallopian tube was suck with adhesions to my bowel. There was a bit of endometriosis on the right and left side of my uterus, but luckily not inside it. My bowel had some scarring and a little endometriosis. Along with all that, my one remaining tube that was repaired in 2013, had been blocked by scar tissue.

    My amazing surgeon removed the cyst, scar tissue/adhesions, endometriosis, and unblocked my tube. She cured my pain, she's my hero!

    One reason why I wanted to post all of this is to let you know that it's possible to actually get rid of the pain and save your reproductive organs so you can still get pregnant. If course, there are different circumstances for some, but not for all.

    My surgeon was specially trained to remove ovarian cysts THE CORRECT WAY, with little to no damage to the ovary. Apparently, in medical school they're taught to just rip the cyst from the ovary wall, which will cause damage. My surgeon was trained to gently tease it away from the ovarian wall and stay away from the egg reserve as much as possible. It takes a long time to do such delicate work, but if you still want kids it's definitely worth it!

    One other thing I want to mention is, each month when an egg is developing in the ovary, it develops inside a cyst. But, at that point it's called a follicle. Once you've ovulated, the follicle is then called a cyst. They typically go away on their own. I've had them linger a little, sometimes for months, since I started puberty.

    Anyway, my first period since my surgery started a couple days ago. For the first time, I'm feeling cramps the way normal women do. I am having ovary pain, but that's normal this soon after surgery. Also, my period is heavier than I've ever had, insanely heavy. But, that's normal after this surgery as well.

    I hope this info helps any of you put your mind at ease and educates you a little about what you may be going through. There's hope! I personally recommend the laparoscopic surgery, but only if you find a surgeon who specializes in this sort of thing, one who's had additional training in making sure they're as careful and gentle as humanly possible.

      Sounds great! Keep me informed. Also, I'd imagine if he's great now, that won't change.

      I'm doing great now. I went from being bed ridden from the pain, for three months, to surgery, to completely pain free. My surgery was three weeks ago today. :-D
