Hi, sorry you're having so much discomfort. A friend of mine had her Dr. tell her the same thing re cysts such as yours. She is in her mid-fifties but still had the "off" periods, heavy bleeding at times. She seems to be fine now. But if I were you, I would seek a second opinion, esp. due to the bloating. Did they do a blood workup on you? It wouldn't hurt to have one so they can check. Good luck and sorry I dont have more info at this time but hope you find some relief.
