had one of my ovarian cysts drained last week after being told for 4 years it wasnt possible!!
been seeing a new gynae doctor since i had cancer of the cervix and he thought it is possible to drain the cysts, one at a time, i had the bigger one drained it was 20cm and was causing me lots of pain, i had it done while i was awake, in lots of pain for a few days but feeling much better now, they drained off a litre of fluid and it weighed about as much as a bag of potatoes .
got to go back and see him next month and i will be told when they will drain the other side, trouble is the left one is tucked up behind my stoma so not so accessible...
my stomach is much flatter than it was, everything is too big and lots of people have commented on how different my stomach looks now.
i am so pleased that a new doctor has had a different opinion and is trying to do his best for me, he works in the private sector mostly with only a few days in a national health hospital a week. it is nice to not wake up every day in lots of pain....
