This is going to be short because I still have a lot of people to notify about what I found out yesterday.

I went in because my doctor didn't find anything wrong with my kidneys, but he did a pelvic exam and my left ovary was very inlarged and painful. He thought I had a cyst.

So I had the ultrasound done yesterday and everything was completely normal. No signs of anything growing or abnormally sized or weird tissue. That's the good news. I would have thought it was a miraculous healing except for the fact that I was in more pain yesterday than I have been in a very long time. I'm even (still) hurting a little this morning.

I've got to call my doctor today and see if he has any more ideas as to what could be wrong. I see my liver doctor on Monday for my normal check-up and I will tell him what's going on, too, to see if he has any ideas. And I'm going to make an appointment with my Gyn to pick his brain a little. Hopefully between the three of them (and they are three incredibly smart men) they will have some more ideas as to what to check....I may even have them do a conference call to pick each other's brains and share ideas. 3 heads are better than 1, right????

I will be praying that they find what is wrong, Amanda. I know how frustrating it can be to not have answers.

Get some rest this weekend and take it easy.

May God remove your pain and give the doctors an insight into what is going on. Remember that He is faithful!

I had an ovarian cyst burst and that was the absolute worst pain I have ever felt. Anyway ... keep us updated.

Thanks for the update! I'll continue to keep you, and the doctors in my prayers - and that they'll be able to figure this out.

That's maddening. It must be beyond frustrating to be in so much pain and not know the cause. As always, you remain in my prayers. I hope you find relief and rest soon; you deserve it.

Dear Amanda,

I want to tell you that I love you and am praying for your wholeness. You are a special woman of God and I am so sorry to hear about your pain and the unknown you are facing. Please keep us updated.

I too had an ovarian cyst which burst which was incredibly painful. Keep on those doctors!

God bless you dear one.
