A woman struggled with pain and unexplainable weight gain for months, but now the mystery is solved. During surgery, doctors removed a 50-pound cyst.
Dr. Gregory Jones, an OB-GYN who was there during the procedure, said he was shocked by the cyst's size. "We are very excited things went well for [Kayla]".
Kayla Rahn said persistent stomach issues that started a year ago impacted even the most normal day-to-day activities.
"I couldn't even walk to my auto without losing my breath", said Rahn.
"I had been trying to lose weight for about a year, but I was gaining weight", said Rahn.
Rahn's pain became overwhelming in May and her mother took her to the ER.
After a series of tests doctors discovered a large mass in one of her ovaries.
Her surgeons confirmed it was an ovarian cyst and removed it.
US Treasury Chief Mnuchin Slams Report That Trump Wants To Exit WTO
After announcing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports in early March, the US and China have been trading retaliatory punches. The same source said Trump has told his advisors, "We always get f-ed by them [the WTO]". "I don't know why we're in it".
"I used to tell them I was going to name it Taco Bell", the 30-year-old told The Washington Post about the jokes she used to make in response to all the awkward pregnancy questions.
"This is one of the largest I have ever seen or certainly removed", said Jones.
The surgery to remove it was successful, and Rahn is recovering well.
The growth weighed in at 50 pounds, according to the hospital.
So what is a mucinous cystadenoma, and how can you be sure you don't have one? "It is a benign condition", Dr. Jones said.
A happy - and relieved-looking - Rahn said she hoped her story would encourage others to listen to their bodies.
"As soon as I got home and was able to move a little, I tried every shirt I had on and it was awesome", Rahn said."This dress I have on, I actually have not been able to wear in a year".
In February, a 24-person team removed a 132-pound mucinous cyst from a CT woman's left ovary after she'd gained 10 pounds every week for two months, Fox 61 reported.
