    Hope you don't mind me asking, how old are you a how is the weight distributed? My sister had a similar problem but as a hysterectomy was out of the question (they wanted more than the cyst and she could not afford the recovery time) Her own doctor agreed they should monitor the situation and as the menopause soon followed the cyst went on it's own. BUT her weight didn't! That took a LOT longer!

    It all depends on if your thyroid is normal. I had exactly the same operation. I did loose weight but it depends on your usual weight. If you put weight on easily, then it won't be a cure unfortunately.
