I have a complex ovarian cyst that partially ruptured 3 days ago. Er dr said i'd be fine in 2 days but i'm still in tremendous pain. Is this normal?

I'd say yes.: You have had an ovarian cyst rupture, with blood and possibly other fluid empty into your abdominal cavity. This will likely cause a great deal of pain and reactive changes, like adhesions over time. If you haven't already , it might be wise to schedule at least an appointment with your OB dr. To get checked out if the pain persists. You might even have endometriosis which is also painful. ...Read more

How serious is a complex ovarian cyst? I have never had a complex ovarian cyst before. Always simple and i haven't had problems with them for years. Now suddenly I have had two cyst rupture in one week! i was in the ER and told it would just be a few days

I : I am so sorry you are going through this. Ovarian cysts are a very painful, miserable condition. As the er physician advised removal, it is worthwhile to discuss this with a gynecologist. In some patients, treatment with anti-inflammatory type medications or even birth control pills can help shrink cysts down. However, if the cyst looks concerning on ultrasound, often times the patient is advised to have it removed. Only a licensed gynecologist who reviews your studies and takes your history can advise one way or the other. ...Read more

Is it possible for a ruptured complex ovarian cyst to heal and then continue to grow? Mine is still there after 8 weeks and no longer leaking fluid.

Is it possible for a ruptured complex ovarian cyst to heal and then continue to grow? Mine is still there after 8 weeks and no longer leaking fluid.

Caution is needed: It is rather difficult to tell from a sonographic exam if a "complex ovarian cyst" is benign (hemorrhagic corpus luteum, an endometrioma, a dermoid or other ) or is a malignant ovarian tumor. Laparoscopic surgery or abdominal exploratory surgery is unfortunately the only reliable way to find out. A careful reevaluation and consultation with a Gyn Oncologist seem advisable at this point. ...Read more
