Please call your Gyn: Heavy and/or prolonged menstrual bleeding is a common occurrence. In most cases it is due to hormonal changes and there is nothing physically wrong with the reproductive system. This is called Dysfunctional uterine bleeding. Less commonly a number of other conditions may be responsible.

I'm a med student with previous pilonidal cystectomy 4 years ago. A new cyst has resurfaced with some ulceration and drainage. Should I be worried?

High recurrence rate: Recurrence rates for pilonidal cysts even after extensive excision are high. Preventative hygiene practices such as daily to twice daily washing with antibacterial soap (one of the very few reasons to use the stuff) or even use of a decolonization protocol with Chlorhexidine or very dilute bleach baths per your doc or surgeon's instruction can be helpful. ...Read more

Here are some...: Minor bleeding of various degree is expected at this stage of healing. All what you have to do is flush the wound for cleansing, paint it with betadine solution, and place 4x4 gauze with some pressure as long as having no bleeding tendency. This wound takes time to heal - as long as 1-3 months depending on its size and personal healing ability. Of course, ask your surgeon as needed. ...Read more

Why would a doctor perform an oophorectomy when assured that only a cystectomy?

Why would a doctor perform an oophorectomy when assured that only a cystectomy?

Difficult cyst: Sometimes the findings at surgery are more complicated that what was expected. The doctor may have encountered dense adhesions so that tissue planes were distorted and removal of the ovary may have been safer than removal of the cyst. The cyst may have replaced the ovary and been stuck to it so the only way to fully remove the cyst was by removing the ovary. Or perhaps cancer was suspected. ...Read more
