I just had surgery on the removal of a ovarian cyst and he found a lot of scar tissue and cleaned that up. Why am I still in so much pain?

Might be too early: You just had surgery so pain is common. Give it some time. Hopefully the pain will go away. If it persists, see your surgeon/obgyn for re-evaluation. For now, take the pan med that was given to you after surgery.

Had cystectomy in july and keep getting cysts. Is it normal to have blood and tissue like substance coming out after a ruptured ovarian cyst?

Had cystectomy in july and keep getting cysts. Is it normal to have blood and tissue like substance coming out after a ruptured ovarian cyst?

More info needed: If you mean blood and tissue coming from the vagina, no that is not normal, and needs prompt evaluation. If you mean blood and tissue coming out of your incisions, that is also not normal, and needs emergent evaluation. Recurrent ovarian cysts can be prevented with medicine--depending on your pregnancy goals.

After how long will the menstrual cycle begin after laproscopy? I had an ovarian cyst removed and scar tissue was also found during surgery.

2 to 4 weeks: If the lining of the womb (endometrium) was also removed then it will be closer to 4 weeks. Your treating GYN can also give you an approximation at your 2 week check up appointment.

How long do I have before my 12cm ovarian cyst ruptures?

How long do I have before my 12cm ovarian cyst ruptures?

No way to tell: That is a quite large cyst. It could rupture or twist, you should be monitored with ultrasound by a doctor, if it ruptures, you could have a fair amount of pain or possibly internal bleeding. If it twists, you could have pain or compromised ovary. Sometimes nothing happens, it springs a small leak and goes away or needs interventional radiology to drain it or possibly a laparoscopy. see your doc.

What external factors can cause an ovarian cyst to rupture?

What external factors can cause an ovarian cyst to rupture?

Sex: It is not easy to force a cyst to rupture. It often just happens spontaneously when the cyst reaches a size and pressure that the cyst wall cannot hold. But I would have to say that intercourse is the most common external cause of cyst rupture.

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.

Yes: Every month when a woman ovulates there will be a cyst on one of her ovaries at least 2 centimeters in diameter. That cyst will rupture to release the egg. Most women do not know this has happened, but some women will have cramps or pain around the time of ovulation. Sometimes the cyst will fill with blood and be very painfull, usually it resolves on its own - but some will require surgery.
