How can you tell if your ovarian cysts are back? Are there any natural remedies?

I had surgery in April to remove huge cysts on my ovary. I was in pain for a year. Back pain, fatigue, irritability, etc. I am better, but sometimes I get a lot of cramps and back pain and get worried they are back. They didn't find them on ultrasound last time and I have no more $$$ for doctors. I'm wondering if there are anythings that help.

  • I don't think there are any naturals for it, but I can tell you they have done studies on lemongrass and when put inside of a tube that holds cancer cells, the lemongrass killed it. Lavender causes cancer cells to commit suicide, but if they arn't cancerous I can't help

  • Ovarian cysts do come back. Go see your Dr and get the ultrasound test to see if thats whats causing your pain again.
