If sciatica pain was caused by free fluid from ovarian cyst, should surgery have relieved pain immediately? Or might it take a few days to resolve?

Interesting. Depends on how large the cyst was and for how long it was compressing the nerve. Usually, ovarian cysts do not compress the sciatic nerve/femoral/ or cuteaneous nerves. If the nerve pain was compressive should be alleviated in 1-6 months. Read more...
Hmm... Well sciatica generally is not caused by anything in the abdomen, so highly unlikely the fluid from ovarian cyst caused your sciatica. I would have your doctor get an MRI of your spine if your sciatica doesn't resolve in a week or two as the most likely culprit will be a herniated disc. Read more...

Had lap surg to remove fluid from ovarian cyst thought to be irritating sacral nerves causing sciatica pain. How long post op should it take for nerve pain to resolve? Spine already cleared by mri

I doubt that. A large ovarian cyst of more than 6cm may cause significant pain, but the lumbo-sacral pain would be referred, rather than direct neurapraxia. If your pain hasn't resolved following surgery, you need to have further evaluation and treatment on your back. Read more...
Hard to say. Surgery will have some post-op issues for about 2-4 weeks. After that is should be getting better. If MRI cleared your spine maybe you want to get EMG/NCS to see if its something else as well like a neuropathy. Read more...

Recently diagnosed with 6cm ovarian cyst. Is normal to have increase in discharge with a smell close to after birth normal? Left low back pain normal?

Usually resolve. It is normal for a small cyst to develop on the ovaries from time to time. Ovarian cysts are quite common in women during their reproductive years and may be a single cyst or many cysts. Most cysts are benign and only require monitoring.They usually disappear within 6-8 weeks. An ovarian cyst should not be related to vaginal discharge. This should be evaluated and tested.

I have 4-5 cm ovarian cyst causing nausea and low back pain. Dr wants to follow up in 6 weeks with ultrasound. Should I be concerned it is cancerous?

Unlikely. Lifetime risk of cancer is 1 in 60-90. Small odds. It usually strikes women after the age of 45. There are other findings on an ultrasound that can suggest if its a benign or malignant looking cyst. if your gyn feels its safe to follow in 6 weeks, thats a normal approach. Best wishes Dr M.
