i was told around three weeks ago after a ultra sound and a CT scan that I had a cyst sized 9x21x23... I panicked as anyone would, they told me they are concerned as its large for a woman of my age to have such a large one (I'm 26) they also told me that they are not 100% where it's growing from as its so large, but they think it's the right side. The doctor also told me I'll have a cut right down the center of my stomach due to the size of it. This also upset me when discussed with me, as after doing the whole Google search I thought I would just have a straight cut along my bikini line (which can easily be covered) where as this will be so noticeable. They also told me due to them not being 100% sure on where it is growing from, that egg collection should be offered to me! as its out of my hands. Has anyone else ever been offered this?
I asked for a referral (second opinion) as the doctor I was first sent to I had no trust/confidence with her. She told me she was wanting to check the levels of my blood (LDH) to check the levels to rule out cancer or something... I had two blood tests and both clotted in the tube which meant they couldn't get a result, they then told me it was ok to go ahead with the consultation for the operation without the blood result. What annoyed me was when the blood test was first discussed it was urgent they knew the results...
Therefore I asked to be referred to another hospital for a second opinion.
Can someone please give me some advice, I'm concerned again as they keep saying they won't know where it's growing from until opening me up, and I'm worried they may take both ovaries, then it would mean no children,or they may remove one and what if my other doesn't work? I am so stressed over so many things and feel some replies on this forum will give me some guidance. Hope someone can help. Thanks
