    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Hi Mary,

    Thank you for taking the time to share your story here. I looked it up here on WebMD and while symptoms don't always happen, it definitely can occur for some depending on size of cyst(s) and location.

    How are you doing now? Did the surgeries help?
