Hi, I'm 27 years old and yesterday I found out that I have an extremely large cyst. It's about 12 inches long and 10 inches in depth, so it's pretty big. My doctors are trying to rush me through as urgent to have the operation to remove it, or drain it. I suffer with anxiety and I am terrified about this. I have never stayed in hospital really or had any kind of operation.
I was wondering if someone could talk me through the whole process so I know what to expect. I have been in pain for about a month now and it took them over three weeks to get me in to have a scan. I visited my GP today and they have prescribed me with Zapain for the weekend, until I hear from the hospital next week.
Roughly, how long do you stay in hospital for a cyst like this and has anyone near my age had something like this at all?
I'm sorry for all the questions, I just want to be informed.
Thank you for reading.
