it is the size of a 7 month pregnancy and still growing. my op is in jan.

i feel like a beached whale and im fed up. i would like another child but told my chances are slim. im 42 and have 3kids from first marriage. i got married agian in aug and woud like another. im not sure if they will takean ovary.

im having a cystectomy, just got to decide bst course of action. it is so largeit may be to big for keyhole and i may need a vertical cut.

i am terrifiedand hadno idea i had a cyst. was trying to get pregnant with no success. i look pregnant and people keep asking me then its due whiich is heartbreaking as its a cyst

i have a phobia on ga and have asked for epidural. i am seeing anethestist this wed and it up to her to decide.
