Complex cyst and inflamed cervix
Hi everyone...I'm brand new here. Just found the board last night and registered a few minutes ago.
Anyway, I just wanted to meet others that have maybe been in this position before...On Wednesday night last week I out of the blue started with a severe pain, finally went to the doctor on Thursday afternoon and they sent me to the ER thinking appendicitis. Well, I had a CT scan done and appendix was fine, however they found a complex cyst (not sure of the size) on my right ovary. They also did a pelvic and right off noted my cervix was inflamed and asked when my last pap was (nearly 6 years ago...I slacked off after having my son, I know that was bad). Anyway, based on these findings they told me I need to see a gynecologist ASAP and my appointment is tomorrow. The ER doctor actually called the gynecologist and gave a report on me and the gynecologist wanted to see me in 4-5 days. They gave me some antibiotics in the ER (Rocephin IV and 4 zithromax pills) to knock out any infection due to fever and elevated white count.
Can anyone give me an idea what to expect at the gynecologist tomorrow? They have my CT results, not sure about any other results.
I am kind of scared as I've read complex cysts can be cancerous and I've also read that the inflamed cervix could also be cancerous. I'm only 29, will be 30 in a few weeks.
Does a complex cyst always mean surgery? I've had "normal" cysts before, but never a complex cyst and I didn't even think anything of the complex cyst until I did some reading after I was home.
Also - I have a lot of pressure in my rectal and vaginal area - is this from the cyst or the inflamed cervix?
Sorry to have so many questions!!!
