I had a lap in jan of this year as I was rushed into hospital with horrendous pain on my right side - it turned out that I had an ovarian cyst on my right ovary which was pressing on my kidney. They drained the cyst and found another on the left ovary which had been causing bad 'period pain' every month, which resulted in me going back into hospital in April this year for a second lap. As the cyst on my left ovary was pretty bad they ended up removing it and the tube.
I was put on the injection to stop my periods (1 injection to last 3 months) and was given HRT. I was fine on this and thoroughly enjoyed not having any periods.
Since August I've been waiting for my period to return and it did this weekend. I feel like I have gone back 12 months. I've had some 'shows' between August and now, but this time it's horrendous. I'm in pain, spent yesterday curled up in bed with a hot water bottle and popping pills as often as I could. The pain is on my left side - HOW! The ovary has gone and I was told this is what was giving me the original pain.
Is this how it's going to be again???? I've tried to be positive and think it's not as bad as it was - but I'm kidding myself!
I'm unsure whether to get to the docs next week to discuss it or leave it and wait to see if the next one is as bad - maybe my body is trying to get back to normal? The annoying thing is that I was at the hospital this week, telling the consultant how great I feel and that everything was fine (which at the time it was) and she has now discharged me.
I hate feeling like this - I hate my body, I hate periods and how they make you feel.
