It could have been worse

As crazy as an eight pound ovarian cyst is, it could have been worse.

This poor woman had a ninety-three pound cyst!

Actually that wouldn't have been so bad. Just imagine it--I wake up from the anesthesia and the doctor says, "Mrs. Douglass, it turns out you don't need gastric bypass surgery after all. We just removed a hundred pound cyst. Go home and have some pizza."



  1. It scares me that you can so easily find pictures of these things.

    Wishing you the best in the next couple of days... but still hoping for some great posts.

    your last couple of posts have not helped my morning/all day/evening/night sickness. please no more gross photos of removed body the way, i heard about the woman with the hundred pound cyst before. i guess that's one of the benefits of being a doctor's wife, i get hear all the gross stuff first.

    are you planning of posting pictures of your cut out stomach? are they going to let you take it home so you can plant a tree on it?

  3. OK, I just have to say it. How in the world do you NOT notice that you have a 100-pound cyst inside your body?

  4. Yeah, you gotta ease up with the pictures. Those things aren't meant to be seen or they would grow on the outside of our bodies!!
