Re: Ultrasound Report on Cyst
I'm 45 and my doctor told me that if I wanted to get permanent relief from the pain of the cysts I've had for the last couple of years, that I needed to think about having "what was left" of my ovaries removed (his words). And that one complex, solid cyst (tumor) was causing a lot of problems.
As it turns out, when he got in there, he found extremely severe adhesions (scar tissue) and my ovaries were stuck to my pelvic wall, my colon, and each other. He had a time getting everything out. But evidentially, all of that and the tumors and cysts were causing all of my symptoms, because I haven't had any problems since.
I'm very glad I had the surgery. I healed very quickly and was back at work in two weeks. I've had no menopausal symptoms either, as my doctor put me on the Vivelle-Dot transdermal patch the day after surgery. I really can't even tell I've had surgery, except that I feel worlds better.
