Brief Answer:
Better to remove the cyst surgically

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
Endometriotic cyst of more than 4 cms size should be treated surgically in general.
Because cyst of this much size may not regress with medical treatment.
And also as the cyst is growing there are possibilities like torsion, rupture etc.
Endometriosis can decrease the fertility also, by altering pelvic environment, affecting the function of fallopian tubes and by leading to adhesions etc.
If the woman with endometriotic cyst gets pregnancy, that can lead to further increase in the size of the cyst due to decidual reaction in the endometrial tissue.
So better to remove the endometrial cyst, before planning for pregnancy.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the answer, please give your review at the end of the discussion.
Take care.

Brief Answer:
Better to be cautious

Detailed Answer:
-If your doctor told to wait and watch, you can observe for one month. But better to be cautious. If your wife gets symptoms like pain abdomen, nausea, vomiting etc, better to consult gynecologist immediately.
-As I told previously, there is possibility of increase in the size of the cyst during pregnancy due to decidualization.
So better to plan for pregnancy, after regression of the cyst.
-Surgery may not affect future pregnancy. There is possibility that some amount of ovarian tissue may need to be removed.
But benefits overweigh the risks here.

My stool was like a tan color with mucus like stuff. I am lactose intolerant so not sure if that is part of it, since I had consumed a lot of dairy prior to that, with the use of Lactaid pills. Then a few days later it switched to diarrhea on and off with my stomach hurting and nausea. Now the diarrhea has stopped but my stools are still very soft, but very dark in color. What do you think this means?? Help!

My 83 year old Mother has had for several years sudden nausea that happens for no apparent reason. She has had scans, procedures, & blood work to check for ulcers , acid reflux , stomach emptying problems, heart conditions etc. with no major problems found. Her gall bladder has been removed for at least 10 years, as well as her female organs. She does have diviticulitis and high blood pressure, which she takes meds for. It seems that her nausea comes on rapidly when she is shopping or moving her arms or bending. Her gastro , family and heart doctors have not found any reasons for these nausea attacks. Can you offer any possible reasons for what is happening to her. She does not feel dizzy, have headaches or notice anything before these episodes happen.
