Ovarian Cyst :: Laparoscopy And Ruptured Removal?

Nov 30, 2015

I have been very ill and in a lot of pain since August, going backwards and forwards to my doctors, even got admitted to hospital in August with suspected appendicitis but got sent home.

However last weekend I got rushed into hospital with awful sharp pains in my right side of pelvis and ended up having a laparoscopy where they found a cyst that had ruptured and leaked fluid all around my ovary so they had to cut me lower down to clean it all out and remove the sack! I was in hospital for 2 nights being sick and in pain.

I came home last Tuesday night and have had horrific shoulder pain from the gas and I can't manage to walk more than a couple of mins without getting shooting pains where I've been cut and being exhausted after.

I've been signed off work for 2 weeks, I'm a nursery nurse so a lot of lifting, sitting on the floor and getting up and down is involved! I'm worried I won't be better by next week and will need more time off, how long was you off work for with this or similar procedure? Any tips to speed up my recovery?

Ruptured Ovarian Cyst :: Bloating And Loss Of Appetite

I'm 48 years old, and had a ruptured ovarian cyst two and half weeks ago. CT scan shows I have two more cysts ... One each side. They are only small, 2cms right and 3/4cms left. My Consultant says I should have another scan in four months to monitor them. There are some questions over whether I'm menopausal or not. My GP says I am and blood tests have convinced her but my Consultant is a little hesitant and says it's hard to be sure. (No periods but have more a coil).

My concern at the moment is the bloating and loss of appetite, feeling full after little food, and constipation. My Consultant says that she will refer me to Gastro Doc incase it's IBS which has thrown me into confusion. From what I've read, these symptoms are typical and I guess I want some reassurance from people with similar experiences. And any advice on how long the bloating will last for -

Ovarian Cyst :: Ruptured - No Treatment Done, Pain Intensifies

About three weeks ago after an exercise test where we had to do 35 curl ups a cyst I had apparently ruptured.

My doctor said it was constipation and after It didn't fade and only worsened, we went to the ER. They wanted to give me a Pap Smear, it would be easiest, but I had never used tampons only pads, never had sex, never stuck anything up there so the doctor out of courtesy for the could be painful hymen tearing had to go the long route with an Ultrasound that showed nothing and a CT scan that showed the ruptured Ovarian cyst.

They told me my body would work itself out, I was young, these happen to a lot of women, the pain will stop in a few days, and to schedule an after appointment with my doctor and Gyne.

I put both off because I was annoyed my female doctor did not consider a young woman would possibly have an ovarian cyst and didn't want to clear my schedule for Gyne.

The pain keeps getting worse. It started out with occasional sharp aches, now it feels like something sharp keeps pinching my sides constantly. I don't feel like eating, I keep getting small fevers and sensations like I will vomit, and a firey pain that surges through my lower abdomen that I've only found the way to stop it is to down an ibuprofen and as much water as possible. I've now developed fatigue and shortness of breath that onsets with my morning bike rides and I can hardly stay awake.

It hurts on both sides--originally only the right side and I'm on birth control. So I shouldn't be developing a second. (Started birth control after the emergency room visit and after my period had started).

I don't know what to do. I don't want to trust my doc again and emergency room visits are costly. Is it the ruptured cyst doing this? How can I fix it? I don't think it's working itself out.

Ovarian Cyst :: Ruptured 3 Years Ago - Unbearable Pain

I had a ruptured cyst on my ovaries nearly 3 years ago now during the summer and was in hospital for 2 days. The hospital staff couldn't have been worse and that is literally the only information I know, that I had a cyst and it burst. I never have any follow up appointments, my GP wasn't informed or got in touch so I thought nothing of it. 3 years later I have the most horrendous pain mainly after and something during sex. I have ovary pain throughout the month which becomes unbearable come mid cycle. It feels literally like someone is squeezing my ovaries. I struggle to use the toilet when at its worse. And overall I know there's more to it but doctors have always dismissed me and just told me I have bad periods and to take pain killers. I take 50g codeine that doesn't move the pain only slightly dulls it and makes me feel really ill and sick. It affects my work and sex life massively. I'm 21 and have had issues from being 18. Has anyone had continued pain after a ruptured cyst?

Ruptured Ovarian Cyst :: Loss Of Appetite And Pelvic Pain

I'm 21 years old and was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) because I was constantly suffering from ruptured cysts to my right ovary. The symptoms of a ruptured cyst are extremely uncomfortable nausea, pelvic/back pain and the biggest thing is the loss of appetite.

I struggle a lot with loss of appetite whenever I have a ruptured ovarian cyst and this is the worst thing about it. I can't eat or drink anything without getting nauseous. Nothing appeals to me so I end up not eating very much throughout the day and because very weak and tired.
Every time I go to the doctors they just tell me to eat, well it's not that simple.

Has anyone else experienced this problem and how did they cope with it? What did you do to help you eat and get over the nausea?

Ruptured Ovarian Cyst :: Daily Pain And Horrendous Abdominal Bloating

How long after an ovarian cyst rupture does it take to lose the extra weight and bloating? And is it normal to continue having extreme pain for weeks after?

I am assuming the rupture occurred a little over 2 weeks ago because that is when I started bleeding (2 days after my period stopped) and having severe pain in my abdomen. I bled for 2 more weeks and continued having daily pain and horrendous abdominal bloating. Went to the ER 2 days ago because the pain was agonizing and they told me I had fluid in my abdomen from a ruptured ovarian cyst. I have gained 10 pounds since this started, all while eating way less than normal because it hurts to eat too much. It feels like I have a basketball in my stomach. According to the doctors the pain should have gone away after a couple days of rupturing but it's still there after more than 2 weeks and I'm still bloated and gained 2 more pounds in just the last 2 days. How long until I start feeling some relief and get my weight back under control?

Tips / Experience After A Laparotomy Ovarian Cyst Removal

1. You will feel tired, bloated and in pain after the operation. I felt very nauseous for a few days and unable to eat. This is normal and is the effect of the anaesthetic used during the operation combined with strong painkillers. It will pass after a few days, try to sip water frequently to flush out the toxins.

2. The nursing staff are very helpful and concerned with your wellbeing. If you don't feel ready to go home, say so, you know your body better than anyone. I stayed in for 7 days in the end as I was in a lot of pain and had severe swelling. Don't be afraid to ask!

3 The nursing staff will remove the dressings after 3 days and if like me you have ster-strips underneath these will come off on day 5 or 6. When I removed mine the wound bled a little, but it was nothing serious and the nurse put a temporary bandage on for 2 days until it stopped. You will be shocked at the size of the wound. Mine reached from my pubic bone to above my belly button. It does start to look better after a few weeks and once healed, I will be using lots of bio oil to help it fade.

4. You will have trouble having a bowel movement. Constipation is normal following a major operation, a combination of painkillers and lack of movement. Drink plenty of fluids combined with a healthy diet (lots of fruit & vegetables). Try to move around as much as possible. Go for short walks once you feel stronger at least once a day. If like me you still haven't been after several days you could try LAXIDO and or LACTULOSE, both effective at clearing any blockage. It worked for me

5. Take the painkillers they give you, they will help. Try to take them at the start of the pain, not when it has you in its grip (not so effective). Only stop them when you feel you can cope without them, don't try and be brave.

6. If you have had your ovaries removed you will suddenly go into the menopause. I am having terrible night sweats now, which keep waking me up I bought a summer quilt 4.5 tog and am using a fan, to keep cool, it helps. I am trying to cope without HRT due to a family history of female cancer and will be trying natural herbal supplements instead. Hope they help

7. Lets be honest it will hurt and I am only starting to feel better after 3 weeks. I expect to be off work for at least another month, as my job is quite physical, and my muscles/wound are far from healed, but every day I feel stronger and I am off the painkillers now. I go for a short walk every day and potter around the house. My wound is healing nicely (its not pretty) but at least my alien is gone!

Ovarian Cyst :: Suffered Hair Loss Due To Cyst?

I had a simple 13cm cyst removed from my broad ligament (next to ovary) at the end of June. It had been causing me issues for at least 6 months, including sharp pains, which I thought were linked to the digestive system at first. I had a laparoscopy and feel much better in myself.

The week before surgery, I began to noticeably lose hair from my head. It's now been coming out for nearly 8 weeks. Luckily I had a lot of hair to start with but I've now had to have it cut shorter as looked awful and I must have lost half my hair or more. :o(  I've had blood tests and everything seems fine, so Dr thinks it must have been the stress that the cyst was putting on my body, esp with sharp pains etc. I have found this link to PCOS but not large cysts and wondered if anyone else had suffered in the same way and if so, how long the hair loss continued?

Has anyone else gone through this after having only 1 ovary removed? & should I consider having the remaining ovary removed?

Ruptured Cyst Or What? The Pain Only Lasted An Hour

Last night my boyfriend and I had intercourse and all of the sudden I had a horrible pain overcome my lower abdomen and pelvic area. At the same time, I had very sharp shooting pains to my rectum. It was literally unbearable and I was almost in tears. I've had a similar pain in the past and I went to the hospital. They diagnosed it as a ruptured ovarian cyst. The only difference this time is that the pain only lasted for a little while (about an hour). Last time it lasted for at least two days. Last night after the pain ended I had trouble breathing and a very fast heart rate.
