Quick background: 7 years ago I was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst and underwent a salpingo oopherectomy to remove a basketball sized cyst from my right ovary.
Fast forward to this month: After ignoring abdominal pains that have been with me for over a year, I finally went to the ER after having woken up 3 nights in one month to sever abdominal pain, vomiting, cold sweats and passing out. I don;t have insurance so I had to go to the county hospital where after 14 hours of waiting, I saw a doctor and had a sonogram. It revealed an enlarged uterus and a cyst that measures around 10inx11inx9in. The ER doctor told me she would put in for an appointment for me with their low-cost clinic and I was to call in 3 days to find out when my appointment was. I called on the designated day and was told that the earliest I could get in to talk to a surgeon re: the sono and surgery in in NOVEMBER.
I'm in pain here and I don;t think waiting until November is going to be feasible BUT I have no other options. I'm already devestated at the thought of losing my last ovary without ever having had a child.
Since I am still having my period regularly, I wonder if I can get pregnant before my appointment? I don't even know if it's possible or healthy and I can't find information on the internet about getting pregnant with a cyst this big.View Thread
