I feel for you. I had a similar size cyst in my ovary which I had removed in December (New Years Eve - one I won't ever forget). I suffered a lot and made frequent trips to the doctor. There wasn't much she could do except listen. Mine was far worse during my period and I would feel sick. My GP gave me cyclizine to help with that and it did.

Do you know how far you are on the list for the op? If its getting to the point where its truly affecting your quality of life I would see your GP and maybe they can get you rushed through.


I was put on the list on my birthday 27th august rang the other day to discuss something i missed on my paperwork and she said I've just been put on really so to be honest really don't know hun am thinking I may go and see the doctor as you say it may bump me up the list x
