Hey! I'm new here so I apologise in advance...
I'm 20 years old and I have been suffering with severe abdominal and thigh pains for 8 years. I finally had a laparoscopy 4 days ago and got diagnosed with endometriosis. However, they also found (and this was the surgeons' terminology) a HUGE cyst in one of my ovaries. Apparently they had seen a small cyst in one of my ovaries during an internal scan about a month ago and 'thought' they had told me. They've removed what they found and sent it off as a biopsy, as they said they need to be 100% that it is just a cyst. The surgeon said that they only found a relatively small amount of endometriosis and that the cyst shouldn't have caused that much of constant pain. I have so many questions that they haven't answered!
1. Does this mean that I'll always have a problem with cysts in my ovaries? Or is it a one off?
2. Will this affect my fertility?
3. Can a small amount of endometriosis cause such severe amounts of pain to the point that you can't move?
Sorry to bombard, but I was kept in hospital for 3 days after my surgery and was on a lot of pain relief so I wasn't in any state to ask or comprehend questions/answers. The past 3 days are a total blur!
I'd appreciate any comments anyone can offer
