If sciatica pain was caused by free fluid from ovarian cyst, should surgery have relieved pain immediately? Or might it take a few days to resolve?

If sciatica pain was caused by free fluid from ovarian cyst, should surgery have relieved pain immediately? Or might it take a few days to resolve?

Hmm...: Well sciatica generally is not caused by anything in the abdomen, so highly unlikely the fluid from ovarian cyst caused your sciatica. I would have your doctor get an MRI of your spine if your sciatica doesn't resolve in a week or two as the most likely culprit will be a herniated disc. ...Read more

Painful 5cm complex ov cyst w/debris, low level echoes & mild free fluid in cul de sac. 27yo. Likelihood of malignancy? Can this cause urine frequency

Painful 5cm complex ov cyst w/debris, low level echoes & mild free fluid in cul de sac. 27yo. Likelihood of malignancy? Can this cause urine frequency

Malignancy: In your age group (27 is correct, yes?) not terribly high for malignancy but not out of the question. benign tumor (non-cancer) or functional cyst is much more likely. Clinical history would be very helpful, blood testing sometimes too. Very dubious that it would cause urinary frequency. Hope this help! ...Read more

What can cause upper stomach to swell twice it's size, round and hard like a basketball? Not preg., CT scan showed no free fluid/air, enlarged ovary 4 x 4.5 - urinalysis w/ blood, protein and lg leuk

Bowel gas : Once you have confirmed that the ovary is not a concern you have ruled out most of the more serious causes. A bladder infection should not cause those symptoms. A bacterial overgrowth in the gastrointestinal tract with or without problems digesting carbohydrates can be a set up for fermentation and gas production which can produce significant bloating. Start with a good probiotic and follow up. ...Read more
