Re: ruptured hemorrhagic ovarian cyst
If what you had was a hemmorhagic cyst that ruptured, this means that it was blood that was released into the abdomen. Blood is much more painful than serous fluid and I have heard many ladies on these boards say that when a hemmorhagic ovarian cyst ruptured, they had to have surgery to "clean out" the blood. When a normal fluid filled cyst ruptures, the body can usually absorb the fluid and the pain goes away. However, when a hemmoraghic cyst bursts, it releases blood into the abdomen and I am not sure that the body can absorb this very quickly. This may be why you are in pain. I think that the referral to the gyne is an excellent idea. Just be sure to tell them everything, including the fact that you had surgery on your colon. This will help the doc to consider everything. For example, scar tissue can cause a lot of pain and if you had a cyst rupture event shortly after colon surgery, you may have scar tissue playing a part in this as well.
I hope your appointment is soon so that you can get some help with this quickly.
