June 2013 I had laparoscopy to remove multiple ovarian cysts, tomorow I'm due for another one. How soon do they return? I'm in severe pain, 28yo

May not ever return: Ovarian cysts generally develop during each menstrual cycle, in young women. Frequently one cyst per cycle becomes dominant and may enlarge to the point of discomfort prior to ovulation. There are many other causes of pelvic pain (scar tissue, endometriosis, infection). There is a good chance that your cysts may play only a small role in your pain. Cyst removal/ surgery may not always be needed. ...Read more

They are in the best position to explain what was found and if anything should be done.

Talk to surgeon: This procedure can be done under regional anesthesia, if they do not do it laproscopically. If they do use this technique then a regional anesthesia will not be sufficient.

Could be: I have removed many cysts like this laparoscopically while saving the ovary, but the size you give (13 cm?) is concerning. It is safe to remove this and conserve the ovary if the concern for malignancy is low; you need to discuss this with your doctor/surgeon and good luck. ...Read more
