AUGH! HELP ME with my Ovarian cysts

Hello ladies...

I need some input. I had a hysterectomy on 10/30/01. Doctor removed my uterus, cut 3 large cysts off my right ovary then left ovaries and cervix. While in there, he accidently cut my uterine atery, and I bled out on the table. So.. he closed me up pretty quick.

NOW.. I've been experiencing pain for the past 6 weeks.... I finally had an ultrasound on Tuesday... right overy is the size of a grapefruit with a black cyst covering the WHOLE dang thing. Left ovary is the size of a golfball... normal size in an almond! Dang, and I wonder why my clothes don't fit! hehehe

Doctor is suggesting Lypron.. says it will dry up the ovaries, he'll do the add-back therapy thing and in six months I should be "just fine"! However, I'm a little skeptical....from this site alone, the stories I've read about Lypron aren't "pretty"!

If any of you have had Lypron after having a partial hysterectomy.. I'd love to know your input.... I just wonder whether to go ahead and try the drug.. or just YANK out the whole lower half of my body. Can a plastic surgeon reconstruct a nice thinner version?

Appreciate your input...

AUGH! HELP ME with my Ovarian cysts

Hi Stacy, So sorry to hear you are going through all of this! I have never done the Lupron thing as I have also heard a lot of bad things about it! I had my TAH on Feb 20th of last year, 2001. I kept my ovaries because the Doctor who did my Hyst said they looked fine, but he did remove a large cyst on my left ovary during the surgery. Three Months later I ended up having to have my right ovary and tube taken out along with a large cyst on the right ovary. Three months after that I had another Lap done to remove adhesions. Now I am going to have to have my remaining left ovary and multiple cyst taken out on March 6th. My Doctor is very concerned because she said my Left Ovary is 3 times the size it should be. My suggestion to you is if the Doctor wants to remove that ovary, let them! Best of Luck To You!!
