  • You are retaining fluids, it's not the cysts themselves. That happens everytime I have a bad episode of the cysts. It goes away after the cysts rupture or I go back in and have them surgically removed.

  • Happens to me too, but they usually confirm with u/s. I get insanely naseated and diarrhea when one ruptures. :P I get about 1 or 2 a year

  • They can't diagnose a cyst without doing an ultrasound or ct scan. Cysts are often blown off. What they don't tell you is that a cyst can be cancerous & by the time they figure it out, it's beyond help.
