Went to the DR Thursday and come to find out i have surgery on March 24 ... I lost my right ovary to a very large cyst in it. This time the cyst is hanging outside on the ovary (left one), causing lots of pain and pressure, even through to my back. My belly is swollen also. I had gone off the 17DD for a bit which turned out to be a mistake. Actually probably was from lack of exercise also. Gained 7 pounds in past 2 weeks, but havent overeaten except for 2 days I know of. I think the gain and hard to lose is because apparently this type of thing prevents it from happening somehow. I read about it. I'm not incapacitated just in a lot of pain. This time it will be laparoscopic and I'll be in and out in one day.
