Mass on Ovary - Scared and in Pain
Two weeks ago I went to the ER with bad abdominal pains because I thought I was having symptoms of appendicitis. After having a CT scan and then a pelvic ultrasound, they discovered a 4.5 cm "complex cystic mass" on my right ovary. The doctor prescribed pain medicine and sent me home with instructions to see a gynocologist. I've never had a cyst before. I should mention I'm 30 years old, married with no children, relatively fit and in otherwise good health.
The pain subsided after a few days, but now it is back again in full force. I'm having bad abdominal pains with a lot of pressure, and I feel very tired and extremely emotional. I'm also terrified because I don't know what this thing is, and I can't get in to see a doctor until Tuesday morning. It's Friday afternoon right now. It's a constant ache, but it's definitely worse whenever I change positions (like go from standing to sitting or vice versa.) Also, it seems to hurt worse if there is anything in my bladder or colon. And my lower back is hurting too. Are these normal symptoms for a cyst? I've been googling like crazy, but I am not having a lot of luck researching this, especially since I don't know what kind of mass/cyst it is.
I'm just really scared, and I'm tired of hurting, and I'm completely freaked out that something horrible is going to happen over the weekend. Also I'm just wondering if it's normal to have bad pain for a few days, little to no pain for a few days, and then moderate pain again.
If anyone has similar experiences or advice about this, I would really appreciate it. Thank you.
