Heya girls as having suffered cysts for ages and always wanting to know symptoms and causes of cysts i thought we could list them all here tohelp each other out!!!
my symptoms and diagnosis were as follows...
2001when i was 16 was sent to emergency with appendicitis
2001 had appendix and a 4cm cyst removed
2002 had colonoscopy and gastroscopy as DR s thought my new pains were related to bowels/ stomach came back clear
2005 had another colonoscopy done as frequently going to toilet 4 times a day
2005 laproscopy found another 5 cm cyst which was removed and 20 small follicles on my right ovary.PCOS was diagnosed
2006 had follow up ultrasoun found a few cysts which went away naturally
2007 sent to emergency again with right sided abdominal pain. thought it was kidneys... put me on antibiotics . Pain got worse i Fainted at work had severe hot flushes and lightheadedness. Went to doctors again (this free nasty arse cheap doctor whch offered after hours services) she prescribed me panadol!!!!!! paracetomol. went to a good gp he did every ttest imaginable and found a 6cm cyst and a 4cms cyst on the one ovary. he said i would have fainted because it got twisted then untwisted now seeing a gyny (which is booked out for 4 weeks!!!)
X My periods are really heavy lately where as the last few years have been very very light .
X I get really hot flushes ( but no temperature on the thermometre) its normal
X i get really dizzy
x i get really hormonal and bad mood swings during ovulation. i cant sleep the night i get my period at all .
i dont want to keep getting cut open to have cysts removed!!!!!!!!! im over it! my sister has endometriosis my mum has had cysts too!
what causes cysts?! Ive changed my diet im eating better Becasue with PCOS you put on weight around your stomach a lot. Im now going to quit smoking and see if that helps. But i lead a normal ife otherwise i work fulltime im engaged etc. what is different with us girls that get cysts continuously?? id do anything to not get them again!
