Hi everyone, I am new to this, so I hope I have done this right.
Back in August 2016 I had an accident on a rollercoaster (the lap bar was loose and crashed into my pelvic area whilst descending down the first drop) the pain was immense. I knew I had done something but had no idea what. I was sick several times when I got off the ride and was in shock, I couldn't breath properly and the only position comfortable was on all fours.....it felt like labour pains. An ambulance was called an they had to give me 4 shots of morphine before they could straighten me out and take me to hospital. Once at the hospital they just done a few checks and blood tests then sent me home (which was 4 hours away 😕 with co-codomol, no scan was given. I had terrible hulucinations from the morphine and co-codomol all the way home, causing my husband to nearly crash the car! The next day I was still being sick so took myself off to a&e for a scan. They said I was very badly bruised inside but there was no mention of a cyst. The pain continued so my GP sent me for an ultrasound (this was back in November 2016) she said I had an 8cmx6cm cyst that appears to be leaking. Suddenly it all started to make sense why I was in so much pain that day of the accident. She said is more than likely ruptured it when I took that blow to my tummy. I was referred to gyna. My app took absolutely ages and I have been in agony all this time, I have constant pain and symptoms of cystitis everyday, my life has been pretty miserable. My GP has given me 4 lots of antibiotics over the last few months for the uti but it's still there. I finally saw gyna doc 15th feb 2017 who has referred me for another scan! My scan is tomorrow eve and I am extremely anxious as to what it will reveal 😕 my tummy is so bloated I look pregnant, I am scared that in the last 4 months it has grown.....I work in a busy kitchen so lots of bending/lifting etc..I really don't know how I've managed to carry on. The gyna doc did say if it's still the same size or bigger it will need to be removed and I may lose my right ovary if it's twisted or looks unhealthy. I am hoping I can have keyhole surgery to remove it but I've been reading in here if they grow too big they have to operate. Has anyone else experienced the constant pain of cystitis everyday with their cyst? It's so draining, I just want it to end.
