Advice and Thoughts Needed!

About 2 years ago, I went to the ER do to pains in my right side. My parents figured it was appendicitis, so we told the hospital and they began taking urine, blood and doing lots of scans. My appendix was fine, but it turned out to be a cyst (baseball sized) on my left ovary and fallopian tube. (They said the pain was on the opposite side because the cyst was basically pushing things over, and the pain wasn't bad at all. It was just an annoying thing to feel). They then took my by ambulace to a different hospital where I had more tests done and was told that surgery was necessary and they weren't sure if they would be able to save my (left) ovary or fallopian. When I came out of surgery, they had told me that it was all so completely intertwined that there was no possible way to save it. So now, 2 years later, I am feeling the EXACT pain but on my left side and I am terrified that something is now going on with my right ovary and fallopian tube. I have never been diagnosed with endometriosis. My questions are: What are the chances of the this happening to my right side 2 years after having my left removed? Has this happened to anyone else? Any advise is welcome! I'm only 20 and I am terrified at the thought of losing both ovaries and fallopian tubes.

Hi I lost my right ovary through a large ovarian cyst. If the cyst was an endometrioma (chocolate cyst) then it was caused by endometriosis. This is how I found out I had it. It is possible to have the same problem again. I would see your GP soon and explain your symptoms and fears. Mine is quite good at sending me for scans after having problems before.
