Ovarian Cyst

The year was 1990 I was 20 years old. Myy pain level was above 10. I was struggling with pain, and I had thought I was pregnant but found out it was a false reading. My family Doctor couldn't figure out why I was having so much pain. Sent me home. Each day the pain grew more severe. Luckily some one whom I had just met mentioned her Gynecologist who lived in Yucca Valley. I made a appointment and was seen by Dr. Vafa. Within minutes of my visit he knew exactly what was wrong. I had an ovarian cyst and needed to be taken out immediately. He closed up his office and told me I needed to get to the Hospital in JFK Memorial Hospital so he could perform surgery. He got there fast, and ordered all staff to put me on their important list. I was prepped and sent into surgery. 5 hours later I woke up, and was told that had he not gotten to the cyst as soon as he did I would of died. It had ruptured as soon as he reached it. Thank you Dr Vafa. I will never forget your kind and swift action to save my life. Sherry England/ aska Sherry Gonzalez
