  • Yes you can have surgery. I have had two surgeries to remove large cysts. The second time I had a complete hysterectomy.

  • I don't understand why your doctor didn't want to have it removed in the first place. Especially if you have a young child and are in severe pain from it. Yes, I would definitely tell him I want it removed. But like the pp said, you have to be ready for the recovery too. GL!

  • They will only remove the cysts if they are of a certain size. Most cysts break on there on and the pain goes away. I've had several and that is what has had to happen each time. The only way I discovered them was because they ruptured and I went to the ER thinking I was dying.

  • yeah i thought i was dying too so i went to the Er and they said it hasnt ruptured it actually grew a cm... so yeah i'm tripping out bout it.. but i just want this thing out of me!!

    my youngest sis had one and they kept telling her.. it'll go away and it never did.. they waited about two yr and it got to the size of a football.. so yeah... when they took that thing out they had to take out everything on the right side the ovary and the tube.. which really sucked!

    but i want that sucker out bcuz i'm in pain i cant even walk.. vicodin isnt doign its job or this pain is just to much for it to handle! uhhhg

  • I just had surgery scheduled recently due to the pain. Then I had Physical Therapy for something else and they used a machine that shot electrical impulses and it ended up bursting the cyst by accident! I was thrilled. It makes you wonder why dr's don't do that to help us get rid of the pain?
