I have a 9cm ovarian cyst attached to my bowel. Was referred to gynecologic oncologist for bowel resection. Scared ill wake up with a colostomy bag?

Small chance only: I do not know what exactly you have. However, if there is no inflammation in the area, which I believe it is the case and if the size of the colon above the lesion is not too distended and if resection is needed you should not end up with a colostomy. However, you never know what will the surgeon see/find when he/she enters your abdomen. So, if all is relatively "clean" inside, your should be fine. ...Read more

Intestine (Definition)

The gastrointestinal tract starts at the mouth, travel down the tunnel (esophagus), which connects to the stomach, which then empties into the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum---the three parts of the small intestine (@25 feet). This empties into the colon or large intestine (about 5 feet), which then becomes the sigmoid colon, rectum and out the anus. So, every morsel eaten ...Read more

I have a 6cm simple functional ovarian cyst that is possibly causing bowel obstruction, heartburn, nausea, and moderate pain. Will surgery solve it?

I have a 6cm simple functional ovarian cyst that is possibly causing bowel obstruction, heartburn, nausea, and moderate pain. Will surgery solve it?

I think: That the number of symptoms/conditions assigned to this 6 cm single ovarian cyst are just too many and, in my opinion, it is VERY unlikely that all your rpoblems will be solved by removing it!

My opinion only
Good Luck

I went to the ER where I was diagnosed with colitis and an ovarian cyst on the right side. I do not have frequent bowel movement but pain Is awful.?

Colitis: I assume the diagnosis of colitis was made after a CT scan was done to make the diagnosis of your pain. However it does not sound like you have symtoms of colitis, which is diarrhea.
So the imaging study that showed colitis is likely an incidental finding mimicing the radiographic characteristics of colitis ...Read more

4cm complex ovarian cyst. Mri can't ruleout neoplasm. Hysterectomy in apr. Age 37. Horrible pain, bloating, urinary incont. Bowel changes. Surgery?

May have to remove I: Complex ovarian cysts require closer monitoring and consideration of removal if they grow in size. The size is still not big enough to chase it and remove it right now. But an interval re-evaluation in 2-3 months will help to determine if it is increasing in size or not. If it grows over 6 months and the size is bigger than 6-7 cm, I would recommend surgical removal. But also get a ca125 level do. ...Read more

Complex ovarian cyst 5.6 cm. 2 ER visits in 1 week. Current severe pain, frequent urination, no bowel movement 2 days, feel bloated/distended. ER?

You have to decide whether this is an issue worth pursuing. If so, a ct scan when you are having the pain may be useful. ...Read more

What treatment for painful post hysterectomy complex hemorrhagic bilateral ovarian cysts? Total of five cysts in right ovary & change in bowel habits

Ovarian Cysts: Hemorrhagic ovarian cysts can develop after uterine removal, or they can represent foci of endometriosis or merely retained corpora lutein cysts that become necrotic and bleed into them. Either way, the cysts don't usually burst, but they should definitely be evaluated by your gynecologist immediately, because they can be serious or even be harboring an ovarian tumor. See your gynecologist soon. ...Read more

I have a ovarian cyst the size of a sliver dollar and having a lot of pain in my left side of my abdomen. What should I do?

Depends on pain: Ovarian cysts are very common. Every cycle you have a cyst produced where you ovulated from. Most of these cysts resolve without any treatment.

However, if the pain is getting better, you can wait and get a follow-up ultrasound in 6 weeks. ...Read more
