Pain off the scale usually means a cyst has popped or leaked and not all cysts can be felt.

They completely missed an 8cm cyst i had, even with the 1st ulrasound, let alone feeling the tummy.

Don't be scared of the op, you will wake up feeling a tonne better simply for having the two cysts taken out.

I was put on Diclofenac which helped take the edge of the pain enough for me to get sleep, and they made me drowsy but the drug certainly did help. I could still feel the angry cyst to some degree but it made a considerable enough difference that I stayed with the diclofenac round the clock till my op.

Which painkillers have you tried so far?


Hey dinger1983, I would be upset too if I had a lap and they saw the endometriosis but didn't't remove it, unless I'm misinterpreting and they left the cysts, but still, did they give any explanation as to why? Had anyone seen you as post operative follow up to discuss methods for dealing with the ovarian cysts? I haven't had quite as bad an experience but I have noticed when reading the post operative reports there was alot more than what they told me. Also was never really given council after either. So I think I would be texting in a lot of capital letters and using a lot of explanation marks too! It's good to vent!
