Re: Can Complex Ovarian Cysts shrink?
I've had some pretty similar issues - I have a 4 cm hemorrhagic cyst on my right ovary. Between ultrasounds in November and a followup in December, it has shrunk from about 4.8 cm to about 4, but I'm not sure how much of a difference those millimeters make.
I'm still going through an aspiration procedure this Thursday because of the severity of the symptoms (I've had this bugger since June, following laparoscopic surgery for a 12 cm cyst in February). Maybe ask your doctor about cyst aspiration - I'm not very well versed on it, but he said that for me, at a minimum, it would remove symptoms, and started me on BeYaz (birth control) so it would be less likely to grow back, or at least be less symptomatic if it does (as aspiration evidently has a high recurrence rate).
