Can you take 5 mg of Vicodin and 25 mg of Benadryl together? I weigh 113 pounds and I'm a female. I have an ovarian cyst and I hardly ever take pain medications so I'm a little afraid and my allergies are killing me.

Can you take 5 mg of Vicodin and 25 mg of Benadryl together? I weigh 113 pounds and I'm a female. I have an ovarian cyst and I hardly ever take pain medications so I'm a little afraid and my allergies are killing me.

It's OK: Good afternoon, this combination of medications is safe to take, however you may become drowsy so be sure not to drive for the next few hours and do not consume any alcohol. Hope this helps and your pain improves.

A fluid collection: Most women of child bearing years have collections of fluid in the ovaries surrounded by a thin wall of tissue. This is an ovarian cyst and is common during each menstrual cycle. In most cases these are benign. Diet and exercise do not play a role as far as we know in reducing the risk of having a cyst. Speak with your gynecologist or primary care physician if you have further questions.

Can complex fluid filled ovarian cysts become cancerous? Why might there be a bright ring around it on u/s then no ring on f/u u/s? Causing much pain.

Can complex fluid filled ovarian cysts become cancerous? Why might there be a bright ring around it on u/s then no ring on f/u u/s? Causing much pain.

Yes it can: Complex cysts can be cancerous depending on their size and rate of growth. A CA125 test can help decide its nature. Ultrasound is a good test to measure increase in size and also may show any solid components inside the cyst. You should get the ultrasound repeated in 3-4 months and have your gynecologist guide you further. You may need surgical removal if it is causing you much pain or increased s

Pepto: Pepto bismol (bismuth subsalicylate) can cause the stool to look abnormal. It is unlikely for a cyst to cause blood in the stool, even if it is bleeding, although endometriosis can cause that. If you have another bloody stool, have increased pain, vomiting, or feel light-headed or faint, then you must be seen as an emergency.

How much does 160 x 85 mm ovarian cyst weights?

Depends: That really depends on what it contains. Fluid filled cysts will weigh last than solid masses and that again depends on what kind of solids it contains.

Having an ovarian cyst with a thick septa. Two parts 4.5cm and 1.5cm. It hurts. Can't find much info about this type of cyst online. Ok to leave it?

Having an ovarian cyst with a thick septa. Two parts 4.5cm and 1.5cm. It hurts. Can't find much info about this type of cyst online. Ok to leave it?

See a GYN: It's right around the size when I would recommend taking it out. If you have pain, definitely have it removed. Thick separations are also a sign that it may need to come out. I recommend you talk to a gynecologist.

Why do ruptured ovarian cysts hurt so much?

Why do ruptured ovarian cysts hurt so much?

Fluid irritating: The fluid or blood that comes out of a ruptured cyst irritates the internal skin lining of your body, called the "peritoneum". Your body absorbs it, and then the pain goes away.

How to determine if I have lost too much blood after my ovarian cyst ruptures?

How to determine if I have lost too much blood after my ovarian cyst ruptures?

PAIN: If you lose much blood with a cyst rupture, the blood will irritate the abdominal and pelvic cavities and cause pain. If you go to the er with this, they will think you might have appendicitis and evaluate for that. It does not take a whole lot of blood - 2 or 3 tablespoons - to get a significant painful reaction. It is normal to have cyst fluid with an ovarian cyst rupture, but not blood.

Can a heating pad help shrink a 7.5 cm ovarian cyst? Any other remedies to naturally shrink an ovarian cyst? Also, can it shrink much within one week?

Can a heating pad help shrink a 7.5 cm ovarian cyst? Any other remedies to naturally shrink an ovarian cyst? Also, can it shrink much within one week?

No: A heating pad can help with the discomfort from an ovarian cyst but will not help shrink it. They can shrink some or rupture and go away completely in 1 week, can remain unchanged or can even grow in that time. That is the reason that follow-up is recommended. Hope this helps.
