    Hi!

    Yes, I had a dull ache that builded up as time went on and I found it was really bad at by nighttime. Hard to sleep some nights and I had to urinate more frequently. I found I was getting constipated all the time and it just added to the aches and being uncomfortable! It also Radiated to my hip.

    It’s all par for the course with cysts.smile

      I had extreme pain in my right upper thigh and hip. Turns out the cyst which was medically classified as 'huge' was pressing on my hip and surrounding nerves. I thought it was that i was working out too hard on the stairmaster or elliptical. But once the cyst was removed the pain subsided completely.

      When you think about it, symptoms would be much like a pregnacy. You have something growing in your uterine area so it will change your hormones and press against your bladder causing you to urinate more. Sometimes it makes you appear 6 months pregant as it did with me. All this dissipates after its removal.

      Yes, I never had kids but would imagine it to be similar. The part I was nervous about was they said I was hi risk for it rupturing! I had to wait for 3 months for the surgery and was not allowed to do any exercise, sudden fast movements or lift anything heavy etc... it was crazy! Glad it’s iver and all went fine!

    Well I’m 48 and i have all the symptoms you describe so for the past 10 days i have been nauseated with lower pelvic full pain mostly on the left side with pressure also my legs hurt . Last night I couldn’t take it anymore and my husband took me to the ER I experience a pain like UTI combine with labor pains.  They gave me a shot and sent me home and today I had a ultrasound which I will get the results Monday .

    2 weeks ago I was rushed to hospital with acute abdominal pain just like someone sticking a knife up between my legs. Pain in kidney area and constipation. Was thought to be appendicitis but following pelvic ultrasound discovered a ruptured cyst on right ovary and a large complex cyst on left. Sent home with pain relief. I have returned to work but have never experienced tiredness like this before. My CA125 blood test came back normal and I am having CT scan on Monday. As I'm 52 and had a hysterectomy5 years ago I'm going to have the ovaries removed asap and just face up to menopause . Every now and then the abdominal pain returns and a dull ache in kidneys but nothing like it was. I'm not looking forward to the op as had a horrendous time following hysterectomy and concerned it might be similar. I find this forum really interesting to read all the different experiences people have had/are having with ovarian cysts. I truly sympathise.

      I have friends who have had hysterectomies and having ovaries removed is nothing close to that - don’t worry you will be just fine! And just think, once you have that done you should have no more issues at all in that dept!
