Ovarian Cyst 4mos s/p TAH/BSO????

  1. I just got out of the hospital. Went to the ER for pretty distressing abd pain in the LLQ and got a CT scan. Report came back "mass on left lobe of liver and ovarian cyst" Had an ultrasound and saw a 3 cm cyst where my ovary would be if I had one. I had a TAH/BSO in February! How in the world is this possible?
    The final reports came back benign. Was told that cysts on liver is common, but have to see the ob/gyn surgeon tomorrow for the "ovarian" cyst. Anyone else ever hear of this happening?

    Nope never heard of such a thing...unless this cyst existed before and somehow grew/attached itself elsewhere ...I suppose theoretically anything is possible. I wish you a complete recovery and resolution to your woes. It must be awful to go through what you are right now. ((Hugs))

    Endometriosis can do this type of thing, and can be very painful. Hope you feel better soon!!

    Did you have a hysterectomy? (sorry i do not know what tah/bso means) If so, Odd enough that we was just talking about this at work today. A lady that use to work there had a hysterectomy and a year later had a cyst on her ovary. Well she had thought that the doctor was did his job and took what he said he was taking and sad to say that he didn't not do a complete hysterectomy. She went to another doctor and got three opinions and finally got it all taken care of. Not to mention she sued the doctor that did it the first time.

    PS...that is why she use to work..she doesn't work anymore.

    After I had my second ovary removed I suddenly ran a fever and the doctor said sometimes they do manage to miss a portion when the woman has a lot of adhesions. He treated me for infection and then did a lap and sure enough he found some ovarian tissue.
