My brother in law has suffered from burst cyst in his anus.. Due to this he is currently paralyzed.. Not sure if it permanent or temp as it just hapnd?
Most Unusual: In 23 years as a colon and rectal surgeon I have not seen an anal cyst cause paralysis, so this is very unusual.

I started bleeding heavy and feeling bloated, i started having vaginal pain, can this be the result of a burst cyst?

It's difficult to say why you would have that pain as high as right under your breast bone, possibly referred pain from the pelvis. Try Ibuprofen for the pain. Hopefully your doctor has scheduled follow up us for your cyst as well. ...Read more

If he has drainage of any type, he should seek medical attention since there are other problems that can occur around the belly button that have the potential to be more serious (like a hernia, etc.). ...Read more
