Doctors Remove 50-Pound Cyst From Woman's Ovary

Above Kayla Rahn was asked by strangers whether she was pregnant with twins and her doctor recommended she should lose weight

An Alabama woman who suffered months of unexplained medical problems finally has relief after doctors removed a 50-pound ovarian cyst.

The 30-year-old told WSFA 12 News that persistent stomach problems last year impacted day-to-day activities: 'I couldn't walk to my auto without losing my breath'.

Kayla Rahn had been spending months trying to find ways to lose the 50 pounds that she thought she had put on extremely fast.

"I legit looked like I was a solid nine months pregnant". "We went to dinner and someone asked me if I was having twins walking out". "It was frustrating and rough". In fact, the situation only grew worse as she gained more weight, she shared.

"I couldn't even walk to my auto without losing my breath", she told the news outlet.

At one point in May, her mother took her to the Jackson Hospital emergency room in Montgomery, where a series of tests discovered the massive cyst on her ovary. The results were shocking. The woman had mucinous cystadenoma.

Overall, Jones says Rahn's surgery was a success. "I do remember telling my mom and busting out crying they were going to fix it".

Jones said that although he had handled ovarian cysts before, the size of the mass removed from Rahn's body was unlike anything he had seen in his career.

"She was seeking help from multiple physicians, and we had missed it - as a medical community, we had missed it", Jones said, emphasizing the need for patients to seek help and for their doctors to listen to them.

The surgery allows Rahn to return home without her 50-pound burden.

It wasn't until recently that Rahn learned what was really happening: A watermelon-sized cyst was growing inside her ovary and squishing her other organs - a potentially risky situation, her physicians said. Not only will she be able to achieve tasks with less difficulty, but she says she is now able to wear clothes she hasn't been able to sport in a year.

Doctors at Jackson Hospital in Alabama removed a giant cyst from a woman who was not losing weight and was suspected to be pregnant of twins. Kayla spoke out about her plight to advise other women to go into their doctor when they feel something isn't right and to trust their instinct about their bodies.
