I have an ovarian cyst...possibly more. The hospital said one, but both ovaries hurt. It's getting the point where it's forcing me to bend over in pain while I'm holding my stomach.
Has this ever made your crohn's symptoms worse?
Am I a complete moron for not getting surgery done NOW?
The problem is that I have to go to school. It pays for my tuition and gives me financial overflow which is how I pay for rent, groceries, medication, etc.
I can't just leave...this is just really starting to get to me, and I don't know what to do.

My last CT Enterography showed a fallopian tube cyst, however I had no pain. I recently stopped taking my birth control pill for a couple weeks, and my sides (mostly the left) started to hurt. I looked back in my journal, and discovered that whenever I stop the pill for a week, my left side hurts. I always thought it was crohn's, but now I believe it's ovarian cysts. So I restarted the pill, and boom, the side pain is gone.

Could you go on the pill until you have time to get something else done? When I googled it, that's one of the ways doctors treat ovarian cysts.

I think Spooky has a great idea. My daughter (doesn't have CD) was having alot of probs with ovarian cysts and they gave her the same recommendation to help stop the cyst pain, and it worked. Good luck!

Can you talk to your gyne about this? Even if you do require surgery for cysts, I'm sure it would probably be laproscopic and recovery would be quick. Any time I have a pelvic exam, I'm told I have cysts that come and go. The only time one was an issue was in '82 when it sort of adhered to my appendix and they were both removed. The pain you are describing sounds very familiar.

I'll call and make an appointment today then. Thank you guys!! I really hope it's not going to be a big affair later. I have so much work that needs to be done, and I don't have time for abdominal surgery recovery :( As spoiled as that sounds. I just really want to at least get done with school so I can graduate and get a job soon. If it has insurance then thank god...bring on the surgery (though I hope I can avoid it for as long as possible).
