Back in Sept 2011 my gp referred me to gyne, I've had 2 ultra sound scans, blood tests, internal examination, swab. My main symptoms were pelvic/back pain, dysmenorrea, menorrea, and my cycle was roughly every 3 months. I was told that I have a dermoid cyst ( mature teratoma) and its structure doesn't look normal. The 13th of Jan I saw my consultant he discussed my results from the scan, told me that the cyst is 6cm, my ca125 is 8. He said it also looks like I have pco, he asked me about my symptoms and told me the cyst warrants surgery and the procedure would be a laparascopic ovarian cystectomy. After explaining the risks and possible opening my caesarian scar if laparascopic doesn't work etc I was consented. He then told me that another consultant would be taking over my care as he doesn't do this procedure. The following week I attended a pre operative assessment and I have today relieved a call from admissions that there has been a cancellation and asked me to come in tomorrow for bloods and prep, then have my op the next day. I'm worried about it, I'm worried that I'm bleeding at present and worried about the histology etc. Am I over reacting?
