Trip to the ER last night has me depressed

Friday, January 25, 2013

The last several days I have been in a lot of pain. Yesterday the pain was really intense, more than normal and it was up my left side, down my left leg and all across my lower stomach and lower back. I know I have PCOS and I know I have fibroids. So over time a lot has gone on down there. But since May I have assumed all my problems with pain were related to fibroids. Since the pain was increasing and more than normal I decided to go to the ER. My fear was that I had some sort of infection or gallstones or something like that. I know the pain of the fibroids and I havent had cysts in a long time. None that hurt like this since before my kiddos. But guess what...it is a cyst. The cyst is 4cm x 4cm and he ER doc said it is definitely the reason for my pain and that unfortunately it was just going to be a matter of waiting...This is sadly the same thing the dr's used to tell me when I would get cysts prior to my first pregnancy. I had somehow assumed that the days of large, painful cysts were gone. This has totally freaked me out. This means that I am going to just be in pain indefinitely and that I will probably start getting them again. I used to have horribly painful cysts. Like the kind that would have me in bed for a few days. But I cannot do that at this point in life. My job requires me to be able to get up and down with ease, the hold children, to be playful. And my kids need me to be able to function too. Anyway, I am just feeling pretty depressed about it this evening.

    I'd follow up with a doctor to have a check on your hormones. Cysts usually (not always) start forming when your "male" hormones are too high.

    Best thing I've found to keep them at bay is diet change. More like a diabetic type diet and avoid "traditional" meat if possible. Anything with growth hormones added triggers all types of terrible PCOS related problems for me.

    Best of luck and hope your pain lessens soon.

    Now now.... just because you had one DOES not mean they will continue..... be positive ....maybe this is the last one for YEARS !! You can not predict those.... or HOW often they will come !! think positive...... stay positive..... and I 'm sorry you had another one and I truly hope you have NO more !!

    Oh no! What are your options? Do they have any cures? I hope your doctor can help you:( I have fibroids too, my doctor put me on the pill. My bleeding has gotten less and I do not have pain as often.) I hope you can find some pain relief and I hope they can cure you!

    Dear Cheryl,
    I have been doing herbal remedies and such for the last 6.5 yrs. I would strongly recommend that you check out the following website and find a reputable Herbalist in your area. My Herbalist goes to several different states. I don't know where you are and all the places she goes, but if you want to email me, then I could give you her email address, as she would be happy to help you figure your issues. The website to do research on is www.mercola.com. I also just lifted you up in prayer to Christ. Blessings!! Melissa

    I'm sorry about the cysts. At least you know about them. Are you on medication? I don't have PCOS but I do get ovarian cysts and I only know when they pop or drain... I am on medication so I stop ovulating, so the cysts can't form, but I get sick from that too. I do think its better than te alternative though! Ask your dr about medications to help stop the cysts from forming. An easy fix, if you are done with having your own kids, would be a hysterectomy. My grandma and mom both had to have one... I am only 18 and so I have years of this left sadly.
