Ouch!: The fluid from the ruptured cyst can be quite irritating to the peritoneum. If a patient wasn't getting prompt relief with a pain medication such as Narco I would consider adding a potent anti-inflammatory and would even consider some acupuncture or Cold Laser Therapy. Unfortunately, these later modalities are still not commonly accessible. Also, if not better soon, confirm diagnosis.
