Right Ovarian Cyst Causing Left Sided Pain?

Two years post-op left with only right ovary. Have had left sided pain for quite some time but has worsened over last 6 months sometimes disabling. Have had 2 CT scans 4 months apart and one sonogram. Both scans revealed free flowing fluid in abdominal cavity and small cyst on ovary. Had laparoscopy done which revealed fluid and no cyst. Doc says looks like I've had cysts that probably ruptured then scabbed over. It baffles me that I'm having very little pain on my right side but so much on my left.

Has anyone ever heard of the pain of a ruptured cyst being felt on the opposite side?

I was diagnosed with crohns disease 1 year ago but tests showed no correlation with disease and the pain. Found no scar tissue or inflammation in that area.

Thanks for any information!

((kkrenee)),
I'm sorry to hear of your ongoing pain & problems with the cyst There are several ((Sisters)) here who have sufferred painful Ovarian cysts Post-Hyst

I wanted to share with you something that my Dr had discussed with me before, I've also seen others mention this also...it is known as Referred pain, which is pain experienced elsewhere than the location in which it originated. Here is a link to a site that describes it much better than I could ever attempt to explain

REFERRED PAIN

Just thot it was worth mentioning, perhaps discuss the possibilty with your Dr if it sounds similar to what your experiencing, this was what I was dx'd with & it was similar to what your suffering.
I also wanted to share the following link that I found in our Resources Category Resources Category that contains some awesome info on Ovarian cysts:

Health Library - Ovarian Cysts

Good Luck in finding some answers & relief I do hope you will keep us posted on how things are going for you....((((hugs))))
