I have posted a question before about my complex cyst, which is located in my right ovary. I am currently awaiting an ultrasound scan to check for any changes before surgery to remove the cyst. I have had the odd twinge in my right side but 2 weeks ago i started to get a constant cramping/aching pain in my lower abdomen but in the last 2 days I have also experienced very sharp stabbing pains in both sides which come and go, and also back ache. I have been taking paracetamol to take the edge of the pain. I have been trying to get hold of my gynae consultant but she hasn't been at the hospital for the past couple of days and her secretary is off on holiday. I was given a number for another consultant's secretary who could pass on a message for me, which have I called almost 10 times since yesterday with no answer. I have left messages but I have heard nothing back. My family have told me that I need to go to A&E to get checked out but I don't want to waste the doctors time when they/I already know that I have this cyst. I feel a bit silly going to A&E to be told to carry on taking painkillers. I really don't know whether to go or not. Any advice would be brilliant.
Thank you in advance
