    Hi ,I've been having lower back and right hip pain since jan ,been very painful painkillers weren't helping.So in March  went to a&e as had enough ,had x rays all fine ,but then found blood in my urine so took blood and booked me in got ct scan same week,as said looking at kidney problems.But the next day I passed out ,pain got worse so rushed me in hospital did early ct scan kidneys fine but found a 6cm cyst on right ovary which was a shock!Ultrasound confirmed was 6cm septated cyst!!!So please go and get checked out as I wish I had sooner as don't know how long I've had the cyst,been trying to conceive for over a year they said this could be reason why we haven't had much joy .Ive got 1st appointment this weds meet gynea doc then another ultrasound end may, see if'see there or shrunk ,but still in pain taking painkillers and on light duties at work until next scan as they were worried it could rupture due to slight bleed.

      I don't blame you think yiu have to push and push for these things it's an ultrasound scan ,no date yet ,the doc took a sample of my urine to check she said would ring if it showed anything up but not heard anything yet,I've had kidney problems in past ,infections ,kidney stones this just feels different ,,my pains around my left ovary and top of leg but not in back ,I can understand why they thought kidneys with you as that's were I got my pain with kidneys ,I'm hoping my pain gets better between now and scan as can't carry on like this I have a 7 top year old to look after ,good luck tomo ,let me know how it goes ,don't take no for an answer x

      Hi ,well met doc who was helpful and understanding ,told him when started having pains,where etc,said pains are from cyst and explained what type it is ,as it's septated (wall inside it so divided)it's more complexed.Gave me internal and felt my tummy said its bloated from cyst , got wait till end may for 2nd ultrasound see if shrunk, he said procedure is have to wait couple of months some cysts disappear on own but warned me mine might not!if hasn't and gone bigger. might have to operate but worried about my ovary so have to see at next scan .?Got to have another blood test called. Ca125 for cancer levels!already had one when went I hospital was fine!howcare you feeling today?

      That sounds positive so perhaps best to wait for scan see if its shrunk especially as you want babies ,at least they are keeping an eye on with blood test ,do you feel better now you have seen him ?

      im not to good today been hurting quite a bit but I think I've done to much been painting and cleaning doh ,sounds like if mine is a cyst may be a long wait before they do anything sad ,although I have heard that because of my age and no more babies etc might do something sooner ,is it because of your age  that there waiting or is it standard in anyone to wait ,to be honest the pain I get from fybroids and now this if it is cysts I would seriously consider going private because can't carry on the way I'm going x

      hi, ive heard all depends on how big cyst is? or how bad pain is ?if see you sooner etc,told me today its normal procedure to wait few months to see if it  shrinks.But told me if pain gets worse or have bleeding to go straight to a&e.I was thinking of going private through my hubbys work but will wait till next scan and see what happens if still there and im still in pain will consider it,as dont fancy waiting around.

      I think its the not knowing with me just wish could have the scan quick ,I may go back docs tomo see if she can put scan through as urgent ,still don't fancy a& e as would have to go on my own but may have to if it carries on ,I have read the younger you are the chances are it will shrink ,not sure if you have heard that ,I'll keep my fingers crossed that yours shrink x

      hello ,yea its the not knowing thats the worst,least i know ive got a cyst now never knew had it ,only went into a&e as pain got worse but then said was kidney problems,i would of had to wait for the week after for ct scan booked me in for,but through the night i passed out etc ,so rushed me back in.If you do go they prob wont do ct scan or ultrasound there and then unless in severe pain.I only had ct scan early as was in emergency room and had been in day before,and only had ultrasound as found cyst.Dont seem to rush things,im just going be stressed until my next scan,let me know if u get a date or go to a&e x

      I've just tried to book a private scan can get in for Saturday but wouldn't take my card details for some reason so going to ring in morning ,if your stressed maybe you could do that mine will be £100 , perhaps you could still go private through your hubby's work and get an earlier scan but still keep the other scan appointment might help you if your stressed as if it's shrinked a little but at least you know going in the right direction x

      Hi Lisa so sorry I've only just replied I forgot my log in details so glad your cyst has disappeared ,I hope everything's ok now and you are having some luck with fertility treatment let me know. Well I went for private scan was all clear so went back to docs who referred me again to gyn and have now been diagnosed with endometriosis I have to have an injection once a month for 3 months which basically stop my ovaries working ( mini  menopause) had my first one today and no different at minute but I assume it takes time I have to go back after 3 months to discuss what to do next ,fingers crossed it helps as had enough now ,good luck with having a baby ,please keep me posted if you get a chance xx
