I only found out I have a 5cm ovarian (chocolate?) cyst, *after* I had my 2 kids (now 6 and 7). I am 48, heading towards menopause (my cycles are random) and was happy to 'watch and wait'. I've been doing that for 2 years.
Alas, my hip pain is now acute (like a screwdriver twisting into the hip bone). My gyny surgeon is lovely but he can't see the pain is related (???) and says surgery might not cure the pain. I have a physio friend who suspects my pain may indeed be 'referred pain' travelling up from the cyst pressing on nerves.
Should I bite the bullet and just get it out? The surgeon says my ovary could not be saved so it would all come out.
I am okay trusting my surgeon (NHS Glasgow) or should I seek some of the accredited endo centres? (saw this mentioned in another post).
Any advice??? Many thanks,
