I want to thank you all for your responses and though you have giving me some REAL things to consider - I still feel scared with the alternatives. I'm sure some women have cycst on their ovaries with no problems at all. But my problems started with the onset of the cycst on my only ovary. I fear is if we just remove this cycst what is to keep another cycst from forming and going through this all over again? And Michelle my symptoms now are very close to what you describe your symptoms were after your hysterectomy. Why would a cycst remain on an ovary for over a year? What would cause that? Is it possible to have the ovary removed (if the doctor feels it should be) and not the uterus. My sister's have both had cycst burst on their ovary's (not a fun thing I've heard) my mother had to have her uterus removed in her 30's. One sister has had her colon cancer come back on her ovaries and had to have all removed. Sorry for the details just still feel scared.
Michelle - Do you know if the Dr. you recommended is a specialist in hormones? I do have a really nice OB/GYN but I don't think they are hormone specialist.
Again thank you everyone for your responses. Coach Virgina you gave me a lot to think about, I had no idea that all of that was linked just to the uterus - though I can still say that I would not want to go through for the next 10 to 20 years what I've gone through this last year.
Veronica I'm soooo sorry about your mother, that must be awful - I was glad to hear that things are getting better.
Thank you all again, I definitely am leaning just to having the cycst removed now.
