I was recently diagnosed with a large (7 cm) dermoid cyst on my left ovary. What are my options? My doctor is suggesting surgery because she's scared the cyst might burst. My right ovary is free of any cysts so far. I stopped drinking coffee because I don't want the cyst to grow anymore, and I can honestly say that since I stopped drinking coffee I haven't had any of the discomfort i normally feel. Has anyone had such a large cyst removed and been able to salvage that ovary? I have not had any children yet, and want to be able to reserve my fertility. I would like to get pregnant within the next two years, so how would surgery affect this? Is it smart to try and get pregnant so soon after surgery? What is the best type of surgery for this, at the same time preserving fertility? I am just full of questions, anyone please help.....Any information would be helpful, including what type of surgery you had, do you have children yet, how long was recovery for which type of surgery, etc.
