Ovarian cysts & progesterone
by Beverley Andrews
My Mother is 76 years old & was rushed into hospital end of June this year with rapid heartbeat. She has a heart murmur & an overactive thyroid, in short, the thyroid had caused the heart problem, but when the Doctor injected Warfarin into her tummy, he found a lump. She was given a CT Scan & the 'Heart Dr' told her to our horror, that it was a tumour. On being referred to the Gynocologist, he promptly said after feeling her tummy, that it wasn't a tumour, but two ovarian cysts, that he felt had been there for a long time & were benign. However, he said he couldn't be sure unless he did a full hysterectomy, to make sure nothing sinster was there. Mum's heart's not strong enough for an op., she's had countless blood tests etc., now they want to do a bone scan & she has refused to go or have anymore tests, she's so afraid. So we are going down the natural route & she is putting on natural progesterone cream everyday. Can you tell me if you think this will shrink the cysts in a lady of her age ?
