waiting for my laparoscopic BSO

I have now been told its in Feb tried to explain to under consultant that I was suffering with dragging pain in lower abdomen,back and legs most days as I work on my feet all day her answer was cyst this size (5cm) no way causing pain .my doc has signed me off for the last 2 weeks and my manager has advised due to heavy work load this time of year to get signed off longer as he has seen how much discomfort I am in most days.

I also have 2 small kidney stones and osteoarthritis

Has any one else suffered with pain like this ?

Cysts and fibroids can cause all sorts of pain.

The fibroid I had was the size of 24-28 week pregnancy. It squashed my gallbladder and kidneys.

I also had pressure behind my right eye caused by it and towards the end found it really difficult to go to work but luckily for me this was a couple of days before surgery.

Take it easy and heed the advice given by your employer and you can also get a second a opinion or request and ultrasound in case it has grown in size.

And recovery will be slightly easier for you as laparoscopy surgery.

Sorry you are in so much pain and discomfort 😕 If you can I would definitely take time off work 😕

It's difficult but doctors don't know everything, their diagnosis is just their best opiniin. 😕

I hope your surgery date comes around quickly and is the solution you hope for 😊
