I have had two lapo in 1996 and one in 2001. They were both due to having multiple cysts on my right ovary. I am now in menopause and have been for 9 years although my last pap the Dr said my cervix was as pink and perky as a 19 year olds...whatever that means. I am having the same pain that I have had with previous cysts over the past few months on and off. Yesterday, I took a hot shower. Before the shower no pain and after getting out of the hot shower into cold bathroom the pain hit me. It was the worst it has been and keeping me up at night, ect. Now it is hurting under my ribcage too. I want to make it to my OBGYN on Monday. I have no loss of appetite, no fever, no bleeding. Am I making the right decision to wait as I don't think they will do anything in the ER. Its been my experience that they take my blood and tell me to see my OB asap. Also I hear and feel alot of gas bubbles gurgeling around in my belly...if that means anything.

Thanks for posting your query.
The pain in the abdomen and below the rib cage with lot of gurgling can be due to an intestinal infection or a colic. Most of the times such pain subsides on dietary modifications, rest and a mild anti spasmodic available over the counter.
It is best to wait until Monday for further investigations so that your gynecologist can evaluate you thoroughly.
In case the pain is severe with vomiting, etc then it is best to attend ER for symptomatic treatment.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
