Ovarian cysts
LynnL posted:
In 1979 I had a cyst the size of an orange that burst and I was
bleeding internally. They had to do emergency surgery to remove
the cyst and ovary. I had to have a bloodtransfusion. If you ever
had an ovarian cyst that burst, you know the pain!!! My periods
which were never regular, suddenly became regular. In 1981 they
removed 12 small cysts on my right ovary, but left a little wedge
so I could get pregnant. Was not to be! In 1982, I was full of
endometriosis and they did a complete hysterectomy. Was the
best thing I ever did after suffering for years with cyst bursting
on my ovaries!!! I went on to adopt two beautiful children!!!
