Ovarian Cyst

My daughter was finally diagnosed - she does have a cyst on her ovary. She's been in pain for months now - worse as time as gone on. She is on BC pills - anyone know what they will do for her??? She is 23.

I keep calling the DR but no return call yet.

Well, its good they found something and I assume its a benign, although painful, condition.

The BC pills will halt ovulation. If the cysts are due to ovulation, that should bring relief. Best of luck to your DD!!!

And, a for you. Know its hard to see your child in pain!

Thanks I hope things work out for her...no one seems to call her back. She's been on the BC pills since age 15 as she used to get so sick with her period. Her pain gets pretty intense. I hope someone helps her find the answers. It's horrible to feel so crummy all the time.

Ovarian Cyst

Does your daughter have pain medicine available, as in something that works to relieve the pain?

I can share with you my own ovulation pain management routine. First, whenever the pain starts coming on, I take an anti-inflammatory like naproxen sodium. When possible, I do this at the onset of any pain in the area. If it is acute pain, I apply heat for about 20 minutes via a heating pad. If that does not bring relief I reach for the darvocet (tylenol + narcotic).

Something else to consider are the newer anti-inflammatories such as vioxx or celebrex. I believe those are easier on the tummy. Never tried them myself.

As for doctors not calling your DD back, that's inexcusable in my book. If I had a DD, I would encourage/help her to find a new doc, if she were not being treated with kindness, compassion and respect.

I'm pulling for you both!!!

her doc is nice just wasn't available it seems. We are trying her again today. She has the naproxen but has never thought to try a heating pad. Do you just live with your pain?
Hers has been getting worse and worse as the months go on. I feel badly for her. She's been on BC for years so I am not sure what else they can do for her. She wants it out.

Ovarian Cyst

I am sure that having the cyst removed is one option. You may consider consulting a specialist, perhaps a gyn oncologist (just because of their surgical skill not necessarily due to cancer concern). Removing a cyst from an ovary and preserving the ovary seems rather complicated to me. Your DD's normal gyn may not feel up to that challenge, so you might ask for a referral.

Still another option is shutting the ovaries completely down for awhile with Lupron.

Yes, I am just living with my pain. Its down to no more than 2 really painful days each 6 weeks (why 6 ...who knows?). And, I can reasonably manage that. I should say my doctor would like me 100% painfree and has been quite supportive/helpful. So, I have not been left to deal with this - I chose 'living with it' as my option.
