I'm just doing a small update, real quick. I was diagnosed last week with gastritis and then yesterday, I had my "yearly" exam. I had some sharp pain and tenderness on my right ovary.
They scheduled me for an ultrasound and found that I have a 2-inch ovarian cyst.
I think the plan right now is to start a birth control regimen and see if that will shrink it. If it doesn't then I will have surgery to remove it.
I have had such nausea and extreme fatigue that I can barely do anything.
It has been very hard on me. I really just want to feel like myself again and to have energy. Who knew that a symptom of an ovarian cyst was extreme tiredness?!
