I am 19 years old. When I was about 16 I went to the emergency room and was diagnosed with appendicitis and had to have emergency surgery. The surgeon then told my mother that my appendix was absolutely fine, that I had 3 large cysts on my right ovary. The CAT scan showed inflammation but because my appendix was in front of the ovary they assumed it was the appendix. Since then I have been to doctors and hospitals many times for the same problem. Ovarian cysts. Every time they tell me something different. Birth control isn't my solution because I want to have another baby. I believe that birth control was what started my cysts to begin with, I was 16 when I had the mirena put in. At 17 I had it removed and was then told that cysts are a side effect of the mirena. Since then I have had these cysts and it seems like every period they hurt worse. It has gotten to the point where I can't walk I can't function while I am on my monthly. It hurts so bad I have to lie in bed all day with a heating pad which does NOT help at all. Just makes them worse. This last time I went to the emergency room and they gave me tramadol pill and shot, which dulled the pain but I could still feel the bubbling stabbing feeling of the cysts but it wasnt nearly as bad as it was. Gave me a prescription for it and sent me home. I am currently waiting on an appt with an OBGYN (which I have been to once before and the doctors solution was birth control pills, pretty much said there was nothing he could do because they had already ruptured) I am hoping they will see the cysts this time around but even if they do, I'm afraid they won't do anything. If I have my right ovary removed, it will make it 10 times harder to get pregnant which I am already having problems with. (I'm afriad these cysts have made me infertile) and I'm also afraid that the cysts will just move to my left ovary. I am too young to have a complete historectomy because of health risks. This is the first time I have been prescribed anything for the pain. I am hoping that I can convince this doctor to prescribe it again if there is nothing else they can do maybe they can just give me something for the pain. It is absolutely unbearable. I cant get up to tend to my own child I am hurting so bad. Just want to know if there is anyone else who has this same problem and what you have done to solve it. Thanks in advance.
