  • yup! Sure have! It's so painful! Mine was the size of a grapfruit. They had to cut my belly like a c-section. Recovery was ok. I slept a lot from the pain meds though. lol When I was finally able to move around I got dizzy a lot and couldn't walk long and had to sit down.
    I don't know what causes them but i still get them a lot and even had some bust on me and THAT is just about as painful as the surgery itself!

  • I was told I had a small one right after my 2nd appointment, on the third appointment they ran blood work and I had some kinda of infection in my blood and urine. They put me on antibiotics. I haven't had another check up yet but I was wondering if mine had burst as well.
