Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   How may i help you?
User :   Hi, I am 31 years old and havent hd a period for 10 years, I went in to have ovarian drilling on friday for PCOS to help me concieve. They didnt end up doing it as they found a rugby ball sized cyst just under my belly button, I didnt really focus on what the doctor was telling me when i came round. They took blood tests and fluid samples and what i thought she said mass samples when i was under aneastetic, They tell me i have to go back in 4 weeks when swelling has gone down for an mri scan and by then they will have other results. She then went on to say I will have to have more surgery and maybe medicine, also i might not be under Gynea then, but another doctor. I'm really confused and scared, what did she mean??
