Should I get a 2 Opinion?

I have a septated ovarian cyst on my left ovary currently 3.8 cm..and lesion on my right possibly a complex cyst measuring 1.2 cm...I know it is small!!! Im in a lot of pain and have been for about 4 months..i have bad cramping, pelvic pain, pressure in my abdomen, pain in my groin, and I feel the need to go to the restroom a lot!!! I aslo have a lot of back aches... I went to the gyno and she said she didnt want to do another ultrasound for 6 months..I just cant see myself waiting 6 months and dealing with the pain for that long and not knowing what the heck is going on..on the ultrasound report it recommended doing another ultrasound in 6 to 8 weeks..Im very confused and think I need to seek a second opinion. Please any advise would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Should I get a 2 Opinion?

To be honest, it's your healthcare, you have a right to seek a second opinion whenever you want. Sure we're not talking about big cysts but if you're in that much pain, go find someone who will listen to you. I'm sure I would if I was in your position.

I would find a totally new doctor who is willing to work with you and at least show some empathy regarding your pain! I would not have left that office without some sort of immediate relief and was confident that I was being taken seriously.
