I'm going through a very anxious spell and I was wondering if anyone could provide me with some reassurance. I am in my late 20s and had some symptoms of endo for the past 3 years (painful deep sex, bloating, bad abdominal pain after strenuous exercise or when anything remotely pressed on my stomach), but I didn't know I had endo. Well, in the past few months, I noticed pressure in my ovaries and got an ultrasound that showed that I had a 3cm x 3cm x 3cm cyst on my left ovary.
I have been referred to a specialist, but because of COVID and living in Canada, the wait time is a year long and for surgery even longer.
I am starting to freak out. I have a bad fear of pain. I am terrified that my endometrioma will burst or will cause ovarian torsion - both which everyone says is extremely painful. I used to exercise but now I feel I can't because it might cause either of these to happen.
Can anyone give me any guidance who has gone through it? Any help would be appreciated.
