Question Ovarian Cysts?

What is considered large for a functional ovarian cyst? I had a lap done 3 weeks ago and the dr drained one of about 100 cc of fluid. He also perforated my uterus during the same procedure, and didnít bother to tell me of either. He also removed a lot of endo. Problem is Iím still having pain after lap, on L, sometime R, side, feels ovarian Ė and the dr seems pretty disinterested in treating it. Iím wondering if the pain is caused by cysts developing and then rupturing. Would continuous BCP help? I posted this under a diff thread earlier this week and got no resp Ė someone please advise?

BCP do get rid of ovarian cysts. But in my case, as soon as I stopped the pill the cysts came back. In the past, I had taken progyluton to treat cysts, but consider yourself lucky if you get a doctor to prescribe it these days.

I believe that your current pain may be due to the lap... that's pretty aggresive stuff, removing the endometrium.

I have had way too many laps to count, and as soon as the Dr removed one cyst there would be amother one its place about 10 days later. It was crazy, constantly having surgeries to remove these blood filled cysts. I don't have nay answers for you but do know where your coming from. I found that being on bcp did help, but if I went off of them they would come back.

To Beanies, how soon would the cysts return? With progyluton, I could be cyst free for years. With BCP's, I got them back less than two months after I stopped taking them. Maybe it's just that I'm older, I don't know. I first got cysts at 22 and I am 33 now.

I had one within 10 days of them removing one. I went for my post op, and low and behold there was another one.. Frusterating, I am very cystic and had to have them removed. I have had 3 burst on me and the pain was way too great. I was having 4-5 surgeries a year to remove them. I have had 43 surgeries to date in a 11 year span. I am 31 years old.

Als771, it sounds like it could also be scar tissue from your surgery. However, cysts also can come back. I recommend you look for another doctor who is going to care more and explain more of what's going on. Take care!!

thnks everyone for your replies. I have already set up an appt w/ my PCP to recommend someone else. I know I'm prone to cysts as I was dx w/ PCOS 5 yrs ago. The funny thing is, the dr did an U/S 1 week prior to surgery and didn't see anything - can a cyst get that big (about the size of a tennis ball) in a week? Dr also perforated my uterus during the procedure and didn't say a word about that, either!

Can't you take anything to prevent them?
