That's my results.
A 3cm Hemorrhagic Cyst.
They do dissolve.
They do take away to go away. They do cause a lot of pain, but not risky as long as the size of the cyst remains low, and it doesn't keep developing monthly after the body attempts to mend itself.
However according to the ultrasound I just had, it's redeveloped-but it's only at 3cm right now.
If the pain consists during my Pam cycle, a quick course of action will take place-Surgery.
However, if the pain isn't with Pam, than they'll monitor me, and retake more tests during these next 2month cycles.
My Ob doesn't want to do surgery unless it grows over 5cm, or the pain comes back. Then it'll either just be an emergency surgery or a scheduled one.
As long as it doesn't get big, I don't have to worry about the cyst rupturing causing internal bleeding. At this point (or their guess from last month) it's small enough to rupture, bleed out and dissolve without damage to me.
My Ob said going forward, to call, make an appt and come in if periods get painful. She said it's not worth waiting due to pride or trying to be strong to go through the painful cycle.
Why do you think they say Ovarian cancer is a silent disease? Because women ignore the tiniest things, like cramps getting worse (can be different reasons) but all in all, she said, anytime your body changes drastically with pain, to always call your doctor.
Had I gone in when all this first started, she'd have a better idea of how big the cyst was then, or to see how much growth it's done these past 3-4months of painful visits.
The pain was horrific, and do I want to have to endure that each month? No, but I don't want surgery, and until it grows, or causes a risk of internal bleeding our course of action with my female Ob will be to just wait it out.
Waiting sucks, but so far, no pain.
Granted, I have another few days before Pam will show us otherwise.
Yet, I have good hopes that all will be well. I have to be positive!
