Re: Desperate Please Help !! Dermoid Ovarian Cyst...
First of all, don't panic. The risk of another rupture are extremely low. Usually when a cyst ruptures, that's it. The body absorbs the fluid (this is what is painful .. lots of fluid in the abdomen in not comfortable but your body will absorb this with time) and because there is no longer any fluid in the cyst, there is nothing to rupture. Of course if the shell of the cyst closes off, it can begin to accumulate fluid again but this takes a lot of time and you will be home well before then.
For dermoids, there is really nothing you can do. These types of cysts have to be removed with surgery so when you return home, see your doctor and get a referral to a gynecologist for follow up. Try to get copies yourself from the doctor you saw there. You are entitled to have copies of the doctor's report as well as of the ultrasound report (I assume they did this and this is how they know it is a dermoid). This way you don't have to worry about having your doctor do it. Call the doctor's office and tell them that you insist on having these reports.
Also, carry ibuprofen around for the pain. Ibuprofen is the best combattant against this type of pain as it goes against the prostaglandins that cause the pain in the first place. Advil, Aleve or any of these will do (note that Tylenol and aspirin are not ibuprofen). When I was walking around with a 9 cm cyst, my doctor told me to always carry ibuprofen and that if I started to experience pain, to take it right away. Ibuprofen works best when taken before the full onset of pain. It is better at preventing pain from a ruptured cyst than at tackling it when the pain is fully there.
I hope I have helped you a little. I really would not worry too much about this. Another rupture after having already had one is extremely unlikely so just relax and try to stay as comfortable as possible until all of the fluid is absorbed by your body. Just be sure to followup with your doctor when you return.
