Doctors Discover 50-Pound Ovarian Cyst After Age 30 Woman Rushed to ER in Pain

Share

Losing weight is a common goal. In this country and at this time, we don’t have to forage like our ancestors or grow crops to put food on the table.

We still work for our food, in a way, but a lot of that work is done in a sedentary manner. It has become more difficult — but more necessary than ever — to keep tabs on our health and make sure we’re staying fit.

One woman, Kayla Rahn, was told by doctors that she needed to lose some weight. She tried, but for some reason, nothing she did seemed to help her shed pounds.

In fact, over the course of a year, she actually gained weight. She’d been complaining of pain but was told it was weight-related.

It got so bad that Rahn was barely able to walk to her car. Her stomach was so distended that she could hardly function.

“I legit looked like I was a solid 9 months pregnant,” she said. “We went to dinner and someone asked me if I was having twins. It was frustrating and rough.”

The pain kept getting worse, and Rahn knew something else had to be the cause of her condition.

A trip to the hospital and multiple scans and tests later, Rahn had an odd — but relieving — answer.



A cyst. The reason none of her efforts to lose weight had helped was that she’d literally had something growing inside of her.

“I do remember telling my mom and busting out crying they were going to fix it,” she said. “I knew something was wrong,”



Weighing in at 50 pounds, the cyst was easily the size of several babies. No wonder people kept thinking Rahn was pregnant!

The surgery went well, and Rahn has been able to go back to her life and wear clothes that haven’t fit her for some time.

Dr. Jones, the doctor who worked with Rahn, was also surprised by the cyst.

“This is one of the largest I have ever seen or certainly removed. We are very excited things went well for her,” he said.

He also encouraged people to be their own biggest advocates. If you think something is medically wrong with you or someone you love, sometimes you have to push to get the correct diagnosis.
