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. ...Read more

I went to hospital last night had a ruptured ovarian cyst, if i feel very light headed and weak should I go back to hospital or just take it easy?

Severity: The severity of your symptoms would determine your course of action. In this case, it is best to call your family doctor and let them know how seriously lightheaded and weak you are, and that will determine if you need emergent care or can rest and be seen in follow-up in the next day or so. Good luck. ...Read more

I am 28 years old. I had a ruptured ovarian cyst. I eat a lot, urinate a lot, and feel sick. My weight has dropped from 54.9 kgs to 52.5 kgs in three weeks. Is sudden weight loss after laparoscopy normal?

I am 28 years old. I had a ruptured ovarian cyst. I eat a lot, urinate a lot, and feel sick. My weight has dropped from 54.9 kgs to 52.5 kgs in three weeks. Is sudden weight loss after laparoscopy normal?

NOT NORMAL: Especially that nothing major was found. I would however rule out diabetes in the first place before checking other things. You lost weight, eat a lot a pee a lot. Have your blood sugar examined first. Same time one could look for thyroid function as well. If all these come out normal and the weight loss continues you need a good diagnostician... ...Read more
