  • YES! I was in the ER several times and it was pretty useless. I went to an OB who specializes in this sort of stuff. She found it.

  • U got a written report right? I would bring it to your doctor and have it explained.

  • Free fluid in the uterus and ovaries usually means you have a cyst that ruptured. Just because they didn't see a ruptured cyst doesn't mean you don't have them. They always found free fluid on my ultrasounds and never saw cysts. BUT they went in and did surgery and my left ovary was 4 to 5 times the size of my right due to cysts. Colon gas makes it hard to get a clear view of the ovaries sometimes.

  • thats what i thought-
    i recently had another ruptured cyst on y left one and during the CT they said they couldnt confirm or deny that there was any more in there. and now a month later i have to go back to the ER for the other ovary...
    should i make an apt with my gyno?
