I haven't been on this forum for awhile because I have been sicker than usual. I was having extreme pain with periods that were coming often (only 10 days between). I recently had a hysterectomy (two weeks ago). Three days ago the pain was so bad that I was rolling around on the floor yelling. They did a cat scan and I have Pelvic Inflammatory Disease from some mystery infection and what looks like cysts all over in the area. The doctor left my ovaries in and there are now cysts all over them from top to bottom. My bladder has some cysts and it looks like my colon might have some also. However, it is hard to see my colon right now because one of my ovaries has already migrated over to that area and is putting pressure on it. They checked me into the hospital and the doctor says I will probably be here for 3 or 4 days while they give me a variety of intervenous antibiotics. I also have fluid in my fallopian tubes and they won't release me until it is gone. I have had cysts on my ovaries before, also my breasts and my thyroid. Is this a normal thing for us, to have cysts in so many areas? I am also wondering why the doctor who did the surgery would not have removed the ovaries if they were so bad. She said if she saw a problem, such as lots of cysts, she would. It seems strange. I have not been able to make an appointment with her because they refused to see me right away. They were going to make me wait two weeks. You know--that whole she has fibro and CFS thing, so she must be exagerrating. My husband called up and gave them a piece of his mind. Later, after they decided there really was something wrong with me, they called him and apologized. One positive is that the doctor at the hospital I am at now is doing many bacterial cultures to find out what this infection is. Maybe it will give me some answers as to what has been going on with me. Have you all had problems with so many cysts in so many areas? If so, do they go away eventually?
