I was diagnosed with premature ovarian failure at age 27 and have been on hormone replacement therapy ever since. I'm 50 now. This June after a very stressful few months, I ended up in the ER with excruciating pain in my abdomen, fever, dehydrated. Doctors weren't sure what it was beyond infection. Admitted to hospital for 3 days, had lots of antibiotics and felt better immediately. But, now I'm in the medical rabbit hole of CT scans, ultra sounds, blood work, exams, etc. Now I'm told it appears to be a 9cm ovarian endometrial cyst - but I've never had endometriosis before. The gynecologic oncologist wants to remove the cyst laparoscopically in November, probably will take the ovary and possibly more depending on what they decide on the table. She doubts it's cancer, but they like to be sure. Here's my question. I feel 100% fine. No pain, no issues, no complications since the infection was controlled. I'm really leery about surgery. More so after reading about so many with complications and additional pain after surgery. Should I go ahead with this? Or should I just let it be?
