Had 'phone call from gynacology nurse yesterday. I was told that the cyst is fluid filled and that they are almost certain it is not cancer. I was also told that I would have it removed by Laproscopic surgery and that the op would be performed in October. I asked whether the cyst had got larger...don't know, Would surgery take place at local hospital...don't know, Could a cyst the size of mine be removed laproscopically...don't know, As I am in so much pain and discomfort could op be sooner...doubtful. I am off to see my gp next week (on hols, gp, not me) to see if I can get some answers of the "don't know" kind.
I must say the nurse was very pleasant but said she did not have any information with regard to most of my questions. I also asked how can they be sure it is not cancer and she told me that the radiographers have a very good success rate of reading MRI scans. so, watch this space...waiting yet again.
