  • Cyst-possibly too much information but here goes...

    So I recently had an ultrasound appointment and found out that my gigantic ovarian cyst has disappeared...The gyno said everything looked great and that I should keep doing whatever it is that I'm doing..she fully approves of primal and encouraged me to eat even more butter Other doctors have recommended surgery and said nothing about diet. Anyway, I'm super happy to have a doctor who understands the link betwee proper nutrition and health and even more happy that the cyst is gone ))

    brilliant!!! and from a personal point of view, this gives me hope. If you one gigantic, potentially "surgery" inducing one can go ..... maybe all the little ones I have (PCOS) will do the same!!

          Great news! BTW, there's no such thing as too much information around here.

            I'm very happy for you, but not terribly surprised!

            I've read lots of stories of women's hormones being balanced after going Primal--pain-free periods, regained fertility, PMS symptoms gone, etc.

            Congrats!!!

              olive, what is the time-frame for this? When was your last US and how long have you been primal? I wonder if I could have avoided fibroid surgery if I had known about gluten at the time.

                Nice one!
                I had a cyst removed and I can tell you it was the most horrible thing I've ever experienced.

                I don't think PB is a miracle cure for everything but getting your hormones straightened out has to help, right?

                  That's amazing, olivetree! I have PCOS and while I never had ovarian cysts, I had two small (painless, for the most part) subdermal cysts on my vulva that were apparently due to fluid build-up. The ob-gyn said the only way to get rid of them would be to drain them, but a little while into primal, they just went away!

                      thanks everyone for the responses
                      Aktres, last year (summer) my doctor (not the gyno) recommended a low carbohydrate, low fat, dairy and gluten free diet. While it was pretty effective, I couldn't stick to it because low carb + low fat= no taste and I was not a happy camper. Then in the late fall I went primal high fat and still include cream and butter...The last ultrasound was in April of 2010 so it's been almost a year...I guess it must have started "shrinking" last summer when I dropped the gluten and sugar and finally disappeared when I went primal.
                      Imasin and Malpaz, I'm really happy for you ladies as well...we're lucky in that learned about primal before we had to go ahead and undergo needless surgery!
                      Northern Monkey Girl, primal has not only straightened out my hormones but as made me a much more emotional stable, positive person. So far primal has been a cure for virtually everything that was going wrong in my life

                          I had one of these. I'm a week into primal and I realized today that it's gone, or close to gone. I've had it for YEARS.

                            Interesting. I've read literature that says skin tags and uterine fibroid tumors are linked with insulin resistance. Of note, most of my skin tags have come off in the 2 1/2 months I've been doing PaNu (Dr. Kurt Harris's version of paleo/primal) and my periods came two weeks early the 2nd and 3rd mths; heavy like they were pre-BCP as a teenager; and the amount of clots that were dislodged makes me think my fibroids probably are falling off too! They were palable on PE, so it'll be interesting to see if my Doc feels them or not next visit. Vaginal US had confirmed her PE. The biggest change I've notice is my libido, after 20 yrs of lurking, not weight loss.
