Re: growing 5.5 cm complex mass on ovary+laproscope fear
Hi Kelly, Sorry I can't help regarding a Lap, but I did have a cyst removed while I was 20 weeks pregnant. (they weren't sure what exactly it was). It had grown to 12cm x 7cm x 5cm. (odd shape). Unfortunately being pregnant, I couldn't have it removed via a Lap, and have a midline cut.
I think no matter what, concentrate on the positive of having it removed and knowing what kind it is. I know it is scary, especially when not knowing what to expect. I am sure some other lovely ladies will be able to give you advice on a Lap.
I don't know how to shrink them, as I have one now, and I have had many. Most of them seem to end up shrivelling up, a couple have ruptured, and caused a lot of cramping. It will be interesting if anyone has any ideas.
I hope it all goes well, and you're ok. I'm sorry I couldn't be much help, but I thought it would be nice to just answer.
Keep us posted.
