For over a year now, since my February miscarriage, I’ve had painful ovarian cysts. For a while there, it would hinder everything I did. It felt as if someone was holding onto my ovary and wouldn’t let go as I walked away from them.
They went away for a while, but then came back again in full force. I’ve had 5 bursts now…all on which I believe were on my left side.
You all know that last cycle, I had a 38-day-cycle, something that has never happened to me before. I took about 5 pregnancy tests, so I wasn’t pregnant. But I had a cyst, I could feel it. As far as I know, it dissolved and didn’t burst because once I got my period, the pain went away. I also had a cyst the cycle before.
Now, I have a new pain. It’s different than my cyst pain because it’s lower. It’s still on the left side, but it feels like it’s in a different location than my ovaries. It’s been here for a few days now, ranging from annoying to almost gone to back with a vengeance. So much so that I just called to make an appointment with radiology and I’m going in at 3:30.
I’m scared. It’s a new pain that making my mind wander to not-so-pleasant diagnoses. It’s pulsing, and I don’t like that one bit.
Has anyone had this? I know I’m not explaining it very well, but I don’t even know how to describe it. All I know is it’s lower than where my normal cyst pain is…but from what I can tell from anatomy charts, there’s not much directly below our ovaries but ligaments and bone. And it’s not in my uterus.
I just don’t know how much more of this I can handle. I want my body back.
