I've had 2 ovarian cysts since August, and they cause ALOT of pain...and I also have IBS-C....Two challeneges for losing weight. My mobility is severely limited by the cysts and the pain that comes with them.

Anyone dealt with cysts before...could use any suggestions at all that you could give me

I have IBS-D and ovarian cysts. My Dr put me on bc pills to prevent the cysts. So far it has helped. :)

I had an ovarian cyst rupture on me and destroy my health, so I would watch those carefully.

As for the pain, I found that it helps to work with what you can. You might try doing some arm excercises in bed or even just sqeezing a ball to build up hand strength.

PCOS sucks. I'm on Glucophage too and it does help. Just all the other stuff that goes with PCOS that makes everything seem much worse.
