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!!!View Thread
