This is my first post to this group. I had an ovarian cyst removal surgery 2 months ago. The cyst was of 6cm diameter and was attached to my left fallopian tube.Only the cyst was removed and the tube and ovary were left in tact. I was recovering well except i had some heavy flow and pain during the next 2 periods. But now my cyst symptoms are coming back.I have a dull pain in my lower back that sometimes spreads to my left thigh. Also I am having a bloated feeling . Is it normal during the healing period or I have to doubt that my cyst has come back?
The only way to know for sure if your cyst has returned is to have an ultrasound done. Why not contact your doctor and see if you can schedule one to make sure ?
If it happened once it can certainly happen again. However, another possible cause for your pain may be surgical adhesions which sometimes occur after surgery and cause discomfort. This scar tissue occurs where they would have cauterized which in your case would be inside the ovary.
I am sure that your doctor would understand your concern over this and I would certainly insist on a follow up ultrasound to ensure that all is as it should be in there.
