Definitely go to the ER if you get any bad pain or vomiting - if it ruptures it'll need to come out immediately. 2cm is not big, so don't worry too much about it rupturing as it most likely will not.
Did they say what sort of cyst? If it's simple (fluid filled), nothing will probably happen. If it's complex (fluid and solid, or just solid) then you'll most likely have to have another ultrasound 6-8 weeks after your first one. If it's still there then it may need to come out.
How are you holding up anyway? Are you feeling OK?

It's complex so fluid and mass so according to my GP it has to come out, I'm guessing yours came out seeing as you know what it was. Thanks for the reassurance though, had no idea what the chance of it rupturing was.
I'm going ok, really wiped out after Christmas and the kids being home full time I'm finding quite hard - they're still on a high from Santa!! How are you holding up from the silly season?

My GP thought mine would have to come out as well because it was complex and quite large (5cm) but it didn't. It disintegrated (ruptured) by itself, the 2nd scan showed it was gone.
It was the specialist in hospital who told me that complex cysts can and do go away on their own. He believes it was filled with this weird sounding oil because of the cystic pimples I was getting on my chin. That was December 7, he said that the pimples and bloating should settle down over my next 2-3 cycles. The bloating is going but still got annoying pimples. He also said that the cyst would of disrupted hormones. Fun, not .
Christmas is great but it's so much work isn't it? I'm having a bit of a fibro flare at the moment but actually feeling OK tonight

Thanks MM and Pinkzy living in pain is awful. Kinda nice to know I'm not alone but sucks that others are hurting too.
Mt back problems started during my pregnancy with ds2 but no one took me seriously. His birth caused the disc to bulge and I dealt with debilitating sciatic and lower back pain for another 10mnths before my surgery. It will still flare up if I over do things.
The arthritis was picked up at the same time during an MRI and has progressively gotten worse over the last 5yrs.

Mahjong - I also worry about work in the future as DH definatley can't work (well he works 8 hours a week mowing lawns, but pay is crap) Luckily he's on a pension from the army for his disability so we get by, but it's tight. I'll have to be the breadwinner and want a decent job hence why i was determined to finish my uni degree, now i just gotta figure out what i want to do and if my body will let me! Frustrating hey.

Vee I think you are spot on there. As for public transport, I only used that as a last resort. I used to walk everywhere because the walking helped my back. Once the holidays are over I plan to walk the kids to and from school again.
I joined the gym the other week and am really enjoying it. Feel great when I finish a work out. Trying to change my diet and not eat as much junk. Mostly just stopping all the snacking.
Hope everyone is having a good, relatively pain free day

Hi Mystik! DH has a really bad back and has found weight training to be a godsend with it, if he misses a weight seasion he is so so sore the next day or two Core strenghtening is a main target too, tighter tumny muscles the less pressure on the spine apparently x

Yep it's the core muscles that are my main focus too they haven't been the same since my surgery, pregnancy and c section. Sorry to hear about your DH.

I guess you kind of just learn to live with it hey.
I'm doing ok at the moment although I have been exercising my backside off lol. Mornings are the hardest with the arthritis, I seize up during the night and really struggle to get up and get moving.
