cysts & water weight gain

My doc told me that I have a small cyst on my ovary. Can cysts also cause fluid retention in your feet and ankles? A few days ago... I noticed that my ankles were swollen.... I elevated my feet and the swelling went down but throughout the day they swell again. Anyone with cysts experience this? I have no pains in my ovary at all... I just noticed my stomach was bloated alot ... so that's why I got an ultrasound and then my doc found the small cyst. Now I'm wondering if this cyst is causing me to retain water and gain weight?

Re: cysts & water weight gain

Hello I am sorry to hear that you are having a bad time with swelling. I was dx 13 years ago with pcos and I have swelling in my ankles and feet also. I also have just about all the symptoms that come along with pcos. my weight has been up and down most of the 13 years mostly up and my stomach bloats and I have fluid retention. I have a beard growing and my cycles are still irregular on metformin. I hope that this help to know that you are not alone. good luck
