Ovarian cysts and exercising

Posted , 7 users are following.

I first want to say that I have read a lot of discussions and thank you to all that have shared your stories. It helped me to actually request an ultrasound after my 4th dr appt saying I have everything but a cyst. I switched gynos and he actually didn't tell me come back if the pain insists and we will go from there he said its best to rule everything out and sure enough he found a 7+ cm cyst on my left ovary. We are going to wait and check it in a month. In the meantime he stated not to ski or do any jumping however I forgot to ask him about other exercises. I usually go to spin classes but am worried about it becoming twisted? Just wondering what some of you have been told about exercising?

Thank you!

      Of course! I started getting sharp and dull pelvic pain on my right side. I also had horrible cramps, irregular periods, bloating, back pain and pain down my thigh. I was first told I could have a hernia. I sometimes would get up from laying down and would get a sharp horrible pain on my lower right side. i also just started have a pressure feeling on my lower abdomen.

      I have the SAME symptoms you describe, but the pain is on the left side of my pelvis... and the crazy thing is that I was recently diagnosed with a small cyst on my RIGHT ovary, not my LEFT. I'm having a big flare up right now and I'm not sure if all of these symptoms are related to the cyst or to GERD and IBS, which I was also diagnosed with, years ago. Tomorrow I am getting another pelvic scan to see how the cyst is doing (my GYN did the first scan 3 months ago)... and I think it's going to be extremely bothersome because of the pain and the bloating I am experiencing now. It's kept me up for a few nights already.

      I'm 37 and lucky to have 3 children I feel strange now I'm finally being taken seriously and coz of the diagnosis in may and chemo they have to monitor me with ct scans and mri scans I'm glad they did as the new cysts and I'm glad I chose to have my other ovary removed as they found I'd got a twisted bowel from the first op .. back after that I had 2 infections one in op site and water infection I think that caused it ... but thanks to my specialist sounds like he had good look round and fixed my bowel too .. next for me is to start hrt pills hope you get sorted hun my original cyst that was cancerous got to 6 cm

      Thankyou I still don't feel brave although I know I've been through what was hell this year I'm rubbish at pages and blog things but want to try tell people what I'm going through in the hope it helps people ..I went back and forward for years each time giving up and then trying again coz the pain was so bad .. please don't give up having pains is not normal and if one doctor doesn't listen get another who will I moved over 4 years ago from the midlands to Dorset so have fought both parts of the country .. One doctor here told me it was in my head and to do pilatas for my back ache .. I never even suspected what they told me I have I believed them when they thought it was a dermoid cyst and even joked on way to meeting where I got my diagnosis .. it grew from and a half cm December 2014 - 6 cm March 2015 they tried putting me on the pill after that I rang up in pain they said they would remove it . Don't go alonebut the quicker you get it looked at the better xxx

      I will do and thankyou .. Make a list on paper of questions b4 you go and dont feel silly for asking lots . It's your right to and it's there job to refer you for proper tests and to a specialist make sure they let you have the ca125 blood test if it's above 35 doesn't always mean bad but does indicate problems x

      Hi Amy

      Would love to read more on your story of your fight. So tell me it started with pain and a cyst from a ultrasound?

      I have been having chronic to severe nausea for a year. The nausea has subsided a lot , but I can not find a diagnosis with the many blood tests and other scans or X-rays . We have tested every part of my body . My GI will perform an endoscope in Mar but he said lets do a abdominal ultra sound. They saw something and I was sent to have a pelvic ultrasound about 3 weeks ago. It showed that I had a simple 6 cm cyst on my right ovary .

      I was wondering if all my symptoms are from this cyst. I was wondering if a cyst is simple non cancerous can it turn cancerous ?

      I await to see a gyn. and redo my ultrasound in a few months. I had my first test Nov 4 when they saw it as 6cm then again 7 weeks later it was still 6cm. Do you know anyone ever complaint of nausea with a cyst?

      I am not sure about exercise what to do or stay away from. Not sure when I will see gyn. I do not want to do anything that might cause the cyst to twist . I am in menopause so I know my cyst will not flush away with a period but I will still try to shrink it naturally .

      Please forward you FB if you can so I can read about your journey. Thx
