I have just suffered a ruptured ovarian cyst, and it was very weird! i had been feeling very bloated, so i went to the gym and had just started working out when i felt a cold sort of feeling on my abdomen. I quickly went home, then later that day, basically lost my mind! for about two days i felt so bloated and it really hurt when i tried to eat anything. The craziness went after two days,(which i figured was probably some kind of shock?) but i continued to feel very poorly and had pains evey time i tried to eat and felt sick, i had tender boobs, blood when i wiped myself after i pee'd and just didn't feel right at all. on sunday eve the pains became too much to bare, so went into the nhs drop in clinic and they thought i had an appendicitis!
I was referred to the hosp and they diagnosed a ruptured ovarian cyst and was kept in for two days whilst waiting for a scan. I still haven't had one and the waiting time is two weeks and thats as a high priority out patient.
I have been worried and very bloated and i have lost half a stone in the last seven days. I went to another hospital a&e to see if i could get a scan and the doctor told me my results came back normal (even though i did have a urinary infection and still some blood in my pee) and that i was probably.....wait for it....CONSTIPATED! he says i haven't got a cyst and basically said all the symptoms i told him showed nothing to indicate i had one. this one guy said the three doctors i had spoken to ( lets face it at a more reputable hospital) had made an incorrect diagnosis. my symptoms were text book, and made me realise thats whats been going on for the last two months as i kept bloating out, i could hardly eat anything without feeling sick, etc etc i even have an under active thyroid which is also quite typical apparently.
so, day 8 from rupture, still bloated, still waiting for a scan and still feeling pretty pants! but i feel better knowing this sounds pretty normal.
can anyone tell me what the recovery time is like and what to expect? from the lovely country side of the uk (on a map of the uk...the big round bit on the right at the bottom) lisa x p.s. i hope you are all well now x
