Hi, I'm 48 yo, have endometriosis, ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, pre-menopausal. CA 125 was around 200's then 159 the last one was 210 any concerns?

Likely, no: CA 125 is not recommended as a screening tool for ovarian cancer when used in risk-based stratification. Meaning, assuming that your mom or sister didn't get diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Normal for women with endometriosis to have elevated CA-125. It sounds like your doctor has done Ultrasound to evaluate ovaries as well. Your MD knows your history and risk, likely this CA-125 level is normal ...Read more

Uterine Ablation (Definition)

Uterrine ablation is a procedure used to destroy the thin lining of the uterus that bleeds each month. It is often destroyed with heat but can be done with freezing (cryoablation). Must be family complete. When performed for fibroid bleeding doesn't address the problem (fibroid) directly, may not work at all, and doesn't address the bulk symptoms often seen with ...Read more

Laprascopic ovarian cyst removal with ablation. I have a cruise scheduled 17 days post op. Am I crazy? Recovery time? Plane ride?!?

Fine: You'll be fine. You probably won't be on any pain meds at all, assuming no complications with your surgery. Most important, because you're 42, is just to make sure that you prevent any blood clot by moving around frequently. Get up, if you can, every hour or so on your plane ride for circulation. Check out exercises you can do with your legs while sitting on plane to prevent blood clot. ...Read more

Endrometial ablation 5years ago success! 11/2 ago periods started, small fibroids, ovarian cysts and extreme pain, feeling if heaviness! What to do?

Hormonal evaluation: Your hormones are out of balance. Too much estrogen leads to irregular bleeding and fibroid growth. The ablation fried the uterus but the hormones are the same! Go to a4m.Com and use the physician directory to find a functional medicine physician in your area to test your hormones and get them balanced to relieve your symptoms. Stop suffering and get help from a compassionate doc! ...Read more

There are many possible causes of ovarian masses. Most are benign but some are not therefor prompt evaluation is needed. An ovarian mass is not likely to be related to post tubal ablation syndrome ...Read more

What are some natural ways of shrinking uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts?

Estrogen dependent: Fibroids and often ovarian cysts are estrogen dependent. Anything that lowers estrogen affects them but also will affect your overall health. Fibroids are benign tumors that can often be treated with minimally invasive therapy called ufe (uterine fibroid embolization). An interventional radiologist would perform this procedure.

Can an 9cm blood filled ovarian cyst cause or make haemorrhoids & uterine prolapse reoccur or is it just coincidental

Gyn exam needed: A 9cm blood filled ovarian cyst is not likely to "cause or make hemorrhoids and pelvic prolapse worse." It would be wise to consult a gynecologist to have a careful evaluation of the ovarian cyst particularly, (diagnosis is needed and treatment /removal may be necessary) of the pelvic prolapse and of the hemorrhoids as well. ...Read more

What do uterine fibroids or cysts/ovarian cysts typically look like on an MRI?

MRI findings: Uterine fibroids can appear as dense masses on MRI, or increase in density in the layers of the uterine muscle. Ovarian cysts are often fluid filled but also can be solid masses on MRI. I would ask your health care provider or the radiologist to interpret these findings rather than trying to identify these conditions yourself as there appearance on scans are not always the same. ...Read more

2 ovarian cysts showing endometriomas. Both in a retro uterine location. Right one measuring 4 x 3.6cm and the left 6x4.5cm. How bad is my condition?

Significant: Ultrasounds are fairly accurate in the diagnosis of endometriomas. Any endometrioma over 3 cm should be removed. If fertility is not important, have uterus and both ovaries removed. If fertility important, can have cysts removed but with endometriosis and age 41, fertility may be impaired already. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with uterine fibroids & an ovarian cyst. I'm anemic from blood loss from above conditions. I do heavy lifting at the gym. Is it safe?

Yes: Yes, anemia will have no impact on your ability to perform heavy lifting. The only impact you wil lnotice is in your ability to sustain peak activity, ie you will fatigue more easily.
To correct the anemia the bleeding from the fibroids should be stopped and your iron levels should be tested. You should also probably be supplementing with iron. ...Read more

Postablative syndrome- tubal ligation 17yrs ago. History of ovarian cyst. 2 ablations 4&8yrs ago. Should I get total or partial hyster 45yrs old?

Depends.: If you have a family history of ovarian cancer then you should consider having your ovaries removed. If you have menopause symptoms, recurrent cysts or other problems related to your ovaries then you may consider removing your ovaries. This would cause menopause and likely cause some symptoms.

Was told a few months ago my uterus is retroverted. I had two ovarian cyst 39mm x 30mm on the right ovary. Was that the cause?

?: This cannot be answered without more background and likely an exam/ultrasound. Retroverted uterus is normal, about 10% of women have this. Any source that says its abnormal is 50 years out of date. Ovarian cysts 30-40 mm are larger than normal but not large enough to warrant intervention; they should be followed up though. Best! ...Read more

Cells change gradual: Ly. There is a spectrum. Whoever the pathologist was who read the slides of your tissues saw a slight change in them, but not nearly enough to call them frankly cancerous. Anyhow, they are out of your body now, so good riddance. ...Read more

I have an ovarian cyst and find that my uterus cramps after I eat grapefruit, is this normal? Should I stop eating grapefruit?

Try it: There is no reason not to give change in diet a trial. Omit grapefruit and if it relieves symptoms, so much better.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

If no pregnancy happens, the lining is shed as a period. There are several different types of ablation-thermal heat, radio frequency, and freezing. All of them are good options but some might be better in certain situations. ...Read more
