Was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with these and if they experienced severe pelvic pain as a result?
Basically, I started getting some mild pain on and off in my right side in December. The pain has been getting worse and worse to the point that I have had to go to A&E a couple of times for pain relief and codeine and paracetamol are not even touching it.
I had an ultrasound which found a 5cm chocolate cyst in my right ovary. I have been signed off work for the last 3 weeks as the pain has been so severe on and off throughout that day and it is keeping me up at night.
Has anyone experienced this and is this normal? I have an appointment with he gynaecologist on Tuesday and I know I will probably need surgery to remove it. However as that is likely going to be several months away, does anyone have any tips on what can be done in the meantime for pain relief? Do you think they could prescribe me stronger pain relief to atleast get me through the night so I can sleep and go back to work?
I'm feeling a bit alone at the moment to be honest and helpless The thought of having to endure this pain for longer terrifies me.
Thanks for any help and advice.
