Hi all, I am a new member. After suffering with symptoms for more than 10 years I have recently found out that I have suspected endometriosis after an ultrasound has shown an 8cm endometrioma on my left ovary. I am now waiting for an appointment to see a gynaecologist. Doctor said that although at 8cm it is quite large, consultants may decide to leave it rather than remove. Obviously this thing is causing me a considerable amount of pain (especially when ovulating and time of the month). Has anybody else had a cyst a similar size which has just been left? I haven't had a laparoscopy to diagnose endometriosis, the only reason I know I have it is because of the endometrioma and endometriosis symptoms which I've had for years. Any advice much appreciated!
Would also like to say that I have 1 healthy little girl aged 19 months, I conceived her exactly 2 months after suffering a 'missed miscarriage' and D&C (removal of miscarriage). May of taken YEARS to actually fall pregnant but it can happen. She held on tight!! She's my little blessing. Thanks xox
