I recently had a colonoscopy. Everything was fine, but the doc thinks I have a cyst on my appendix. I have to have a scan. Should I worry?
Cyst: If further imaging is diagnostic of an appendicial cyst, an abdominal surgeon should be consulted for options. He/she will review the images with the radiologist and then make recommendations to you. Cysts are often benign and not always operated on, but should be followed by a specialist in that area. ...Read more

Should I still have a hard time walking, and getting up after 5 days of having my appendix removed and ovarian cyst surgery?
Depends: You did not say if your operation was laparoscopic or not — that would make a difference. Either way, you will be sore afterward for a while, but by day 5 — I would expect you to be feeling/doing better and able to get up some. If you think this is a problem, call your surgeon and get in to be checked out to make sure nothing else going on. Be well. ...Read more

Ever since my ovarian cyst rupture i got traumatized thinking it was appendix I keep thinking it's chronic appendix I have anxiety what can I do?
Appendicitis: Chronic appendicitis is very unusual. A ct scan can usually determine whether you have appendicitis. Having a cyst rupture can be very dramatic, painful and scary. Luckily, it is hardly ever serious even when it hurts a lot. Your body does a nice job of getting things back to normal by itself. The pain and tenderness may last a number of weeks, but it will get better — don't worry. ...Read more

Had an ovarian cyst rupture 2mnths ago on my left side, having exact symptoms one right side! Should I go to the ER? Appendix was removed already
Give It 24 Hours: Well, look at it this way: when your ovarian cyst ruptured they did an ultrasound, right? And that must have included both ovaries, right? And it seems you survived, right? So, it's kinda interesting they didn't see another cyst on the right side--so it must be something else; so let's just say if it doesn't go away or gets worse over 24 hours, go to ER (maybe it's a kidney stone). Better? Hooray! ...Read more

Can a 2cm ovarian cyst on rt side cause sharp intermitten pain along with nausea and vomiting off and on? Appendix showed normal.
Not Likely: Each month, ovulation causes the development of a dominant follicle that may measure 2-3 cm in size. This is a normal activity for the ovary. Larger cysts or a ruptured cyst could cause the symptoms you mention. Pelvic infection also could. You should see your doctor for evaluation if you have had the symptoms for a while. ...Read more
