At three weeks post op, my doc found a small (2.6 cm) fluid filled cyst on the left ovary. He wants me to come back at the end of January to check on it. At 7 weeks I saw my urologist. He said bladder was fine, but the left ovary was "enlarged" (could that have been the cyst he felt or would it make your ovary enlarged??) I had been taking detrol to help with bladder spasms and was able to stop taking it at week 8 or so. I was SO glad to be feeling better. I had my post op appointment at week 8 and although doc did look for any granulation tissue (none), he didn't do a pelvic exam.
The past week or so, I'm finding that fatigue is getting to me. I was feeling WONDERFUL for a few weeks. Just a twinge or a sharp pain here and there on that left side. For three days this week, I did nothing but sit because I was so tired. Today I had to do Christmas shopping and was so worn out from a few hours, I came home and slept two hours. I'm about to go back to the couch and snore here in a minute
My questions are, do cysts effect your hormones? Seems I go from "me" to head spinning around in 2 seconds these days. Anger I've never experienced before! My hair is so dry, it's feeling like straw, my nails are brittle and my skin is so dry I itch.
My left side seems to be hurting off and on more frequently now. If it's just a fluid filled cyst that was found October 29th, wouldn't it be gone by now??
My fear is my ovaries aren't working right post surgery, but I wonder if a cyst can interfere with hormones also. ANY links on the issue I would love to read. I've searched and searched and I can't seem to find anything other than the standard cyst information i.e. what they are, why they form etc. It sure would help to read other people's experiences with a small cyst and if the sharp shooting pains (they sometimes go into my back - weird!) are normal. The sharp pains are now being replaced with a dull ache that seems to be sticking around longer and longer
. Think I liked the shooting pains better ha ha!
Thank you for any and all information!!
