Tonight I got this post in my ASK Michelle section of the website, and I wanted to post it here right away so she can start getting more information from other members of the site. I'm replying to her as well but I wanted this on the site as soon as possible. I can really empathize as I've had a cyst rupture too and it's so painful. Thanks for your help everyone! M
"In the last 2 years I have had 5 extremely painful incidences of rupturing ovarian cysts. I just came home from the E.R. to be told once more a cyst ruptured and there in nothing they can do but give me pain pills and send me home. I have consulted with several gynecologists and both want me to go on birth control shut down my ovary to prevent further symptoms. I do not want to go on any birth control. I simply am ready to have the ovary taken out. Is there any advice you can give me? Does this seem like a reasonable choice. The pain from the ruptures causes me to stay home mostly horizontal for 7-10 days. It is very hard on my family and I just want it to end. Help Please."
