ovarian cyst update
« on: 13/10/2003 02:43:25 »
My 17 yr old daughter had the large cyst removed. It was actually 2 large and one baseball sized cysts.They were benign.[8D]:) The cysts were drained the day before surgery. 3.2 liters of fluid were extracted.  The cysts that were removed weighed approx 6lbs.  Unfortunately one cyst was necrotic and the ovary had to be taken. the cyst on the opposite side was removed and surgeons were able to save part of the ovary and reconstruct it.:)

I love it when we get good news.  Glad to hear they were able to save that ovary which should keep her hormones balanced and allow her to get pregnant later.  Good luck to you both.

Hooray!  Your daughter may want to take calcium supplements to protect her bone mass (due to lower estrogen levels) now.  I love stories with happy endings.
