I have endo, including chocolate cysts on both ovaries & adenomyosis. Woke up at 5am this morning in unbelievable pain. Sorry if tmi but felt like my vagina was going to explode as well as my rectum as there was huge pressure there and some bleeding from my rectum as well. Plus the worst stomach cramp I've ever had with sharp stabbing pains and nausea. Have been fortunate enough to never had a ruptured cyst before so don't know if this is what I experienced or not?? It's now been 3 hours and I feel like I'm over the worst of it with the pain being about 7 out of 10 as opposed to earlier when it was 10+++. I'm due for excision surgery for endo & hysterectomy for Adeno 1 week today. If it is a ruptured cyst do I need to go to hospital or do anything about it? I don't see what they could do anyway? I can't even take my codeine or tramadol now as I have to do a bowel prep ready for surgery next Thursday and can't take any "blocking agents" between now and then. Am I better off just staying in bed until the pain subsides because surely it won't last forever anyway if it's a burst cyst??? My GP practice isn't open yet but would probably just tell me to go to A&E. They wouldn't even deal with my husbands finger when he shut it in a car door! They took 1 look at it & told him to go to A&E who just bandaged it up anyway! Local A&E here is so bad you avoid it if at all possible so really don't want to go there! Can I just ride out the pain?
