Cyst-o-maticly Falling Apart

I really hate it when someone says, "I have good news, and, I have bad news. Which do you want first?" However... I have goo... nahhh I'll just give it to ya straight.

I heard from my Dr. yesterday. I do have some evidence of endometriosis but not enough to cause the amount of pelvic pain I'm having. The culprit seems to be clusters of cysts on both ovaries. Yeah... CLUSTERS. WTF?

The ultrasound tech mentioned that I had A large cyst on my RIGHT ovary... then she clammed up. I mentioned that before but it is relevant so I'm re-iterating. Turns out it was NOT one big cyst. It's a CLUSTER of smaller cysts.... And I have them on BOTH ovaries. Love-er-ly.

Surgery is a possibility but they want to put me on birth control pills to see if that will handle the problem. I'm stoked that they want to try something other than surgery but... GUH. Birth control pills and I ... we're not really friendly. In fact, they tend to make me batshit crazy. BAT. SHIT.

Husband almost DIVORCED me cause they made me so nuts.

Funny story, when I was Senora Psychopath he was in the Air Force full time. He had worked 16 hours straight and was EXHAUSTED. He didn't even get his foot ALL THE WAY IN THE FRONT DOOR before I went OFF! I have no clue what about. Probably the color of the trim on the couch or something similarly important. Anyway, the poor man turned around WITHOUT A WORD, and went... back... to... the ... base. After a 16 hour day. I ... suck. He called a few hours later asking if it was safe for him to come home and I cried the ugly, snot filled cry apologizing and groveling.

Anyway, it'll be interesting to see how I react to the Yaz pill. If any of you have any experience with this one lemme know.

I have also scheduled the consult with the surgeon for the removal of that knot of scar tissue with the endometrial tissue on the top of it. It'll be June 26th. Seems like I may be in Houston for a while. :)

Is it polycystic ovarian syndrome? I totally have that. Ugh.

I'm sorry! I'm really, really sorry. Here: ((HUG)) I don't usually do that because it's cheesy and I'm not actually a hugger, but I wanted to let you know we're supporting you.

This may not be helpful. I took Yasmin. It seems to be the same thing as YAZ just a different dosing schedule. It totally killed my libido, so much so that I stopped taking it because why spend all that money if there's no chance of doing the thing that gets you pregnant. My OB/GYN didn't seem surprised when I told him.
