Intestine (Definition)

The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet).

I went to the ER where I was diagnosed with colitis and an ovarian cyst on the right side. I do not have frequent bowel movement but pain Is awful.?

Colitis: I assume the diagnosis of colitis was made after a CT scan was done to make the diagnosis of your pain. However it does not sound like you have symtoms of colitis, which is diarrhea. So the imaging study that showed colitis is likely an incidental finding mimicing the radiographic characteristics of colitis

What treatment for painful post hysterectomy complex hemorrhagic bilateral ovarian cysts? Total of five cysts in right ovary & change in bowel habits

Ovarian Cysts: Hemorrhagic ovarian cysts can develop after uterine removal, or they can represent foci of endometriosis or merely retained corpora lutein cysts that become necrotic and bleed into them. Either way, the cysts don't usually burst, but they should definitely be evaluated by your gynecologist immediately, because they can be serious or even be harboring an ovarian tumor. See your gynecologist soon.

Symptoms: ovarian cysts, itching and burning sensation around my left lower abdomen, hungry more often, less bowel movements. What can this be?

Not related: Ovarian cysts can be normal by the way. Ask your doctor what they think. But hunger, and bowel changes are something to do with your bowels. You might need to see a GI specialist. Left lower quadrant pain can also be from your ovarian cyst or from your bowel. Need your doctor to help you decide how to tackle this complex of symptoms.

I have 2 ovarian cysts (one in each, both about 1.2 cm?) and recently I've been really nauseous and in pain in my abdomen. Should I be worried?

I have 2 ovarian cysts (one in each, both about 1.2 cm?) and recently I've been really nauseous and in pain in my abdomen. Should I be worried?

Abdominal discomfort: The abdominal discomfort may be unrelated to the ovarian cysts, but if it persists it should be evaluated by a physician. There are many possibilities but the physician will take a thorough history and perform a thorough physical examination, and then order appropriate tests in order to make a diagnosis.

How do I know when fluid has leaked into my abdomen from an ovarian cyst rupture?

I have an ovarian cyst on my right side that is 1.3cm big but why do I have a severe sharp pain in my lower right abdomen?

Doubt cyst is cause: A 1.3cm ovarian cyst is usually a normal finding. Small cysts are part of your normal menstrual cycle. They form as part of ovulation. Doctors who don't know why you have pain will sometimes tell you that your pain is from a small cyst like this but this is rarely true. I don't know why you have pain but I doubt it is coming from this cyst. Best wishes!

Can an ovarian cyst rupture more than once? I had one a few months ago and the same pain started tonight (lower right abdomen) Thank you!

Yes, it takes "two": Unfortunately, you have two ovaries and patients who are ovarian cyst formers tend to do it again. See a GYN MD with your pain and have an ultrasound to see if that is a possibility or not.

I had an ovarian cyst. Got my vaginal ultrasound recently with no clue of any cyst. But I am still having pain in my abdomen. Can the reports be wrong?

Possibilities...: There are multiple potential reasons why your are still having abdominal/pelvic pain. Ovarian cysts can cause pain but not all the time. Usually happens if they are very large or rupture. Besides a gynecological problem your pain could come fro other sources like bowel problems. Follow up with your doctor in order to get to the bottom of your symptoms and get a final diagnosis and treatment.
