Massive Cyst Weighing 10 Babies Crushes Woman's Organs!

-

A Mexican woman, 24, with an ovarian growth weighing the same as TEN BABIES had it removed after it crushes her organs. According to the news we got from the Daily Mail, this tough operation required a lot of research and effort. Let's just hope something like this never happens to anyone again.

Last year, Dr. Erik Hanson Viana at Mexico's General Hospital performed the pioneering surgery to remove the cyst - believed to be the biggest-ever removed.

Now, more than six months on, the patient has regained mobility and returned to a normal life.

Dr. Hanson, from Mexico City, said: 'This is the biggest cyst I have operated on, it was so large that it took up 95% of the patient's abdomen. It's really rare to operate on a cyst this big, it measured half a meter in diameter and the circumference was 157 cm.'

'The largest in history weighed 320lb back in 1902, and took several days to drain, I can't even imagine one that large.'

The patient was quite overweight, so after starting on a diet, she noticed her face, arms and legs were getting thinner but her stomach was getting bigger.

'When I met her, she could just about walk a couple of steps before getting agitated and feeling like she was struggling to breathe because the cyst was crushing her lungs.

'Since the cyst had become so large, it had started to compress her intestines and was preventing her from eating.'

If the doctors hadn't operated it would have gotten to the point where she wouldn't have been able to walk, would be severely malnourished, and unable to eat. It's hard to say how long she would have lived, but it would have been a really bad quality of life.

'The cyst was also compressing the two main vessels in the body since is a vain and an artery, which could have led to serious heart problems.'

Up to 20% of giant ovarian cysts are malignant, meaning that if the cyst was pierced it risked leaking tumorous cells into the patient's body.

The patient chose to take out the ovarian cyst completely rather than draining it first, despite knowing she would be left with a lengthy scar.

Two days after surgery she walked out of the hospital. Before she was used to carrying 73 lb (33kg) inside her because of the cyst, so movement was like she was levitating or walking on the moon.

When we saw her six months after surgery to see how the scar was healing and monitor for other problems, she was fully healed. She was standing completely straight, the doctors said.

The woman has now returned to her normal life in a rural part of Mexico, living a day's travel away from Mexico General Hospital.
