Kayla Rahn experienced pain and weight gain for months and couldn’t even walk to her car without losing her breath.


The Alabama woman visited a few doctors for her constant pain but they only told her that she needed to lose weight. However, as hard as she tried, she couldn’t lose any weight.

The situation was taking a toll on her life and well-being. Her stomach was so distended that she could hardly function. It turns out there was a 50-pound ovarian cyst growing inside of her.

“I legit looked like I was a solid 9 months pregnant,” she said. “We went to dinner and someone asked me if I was having twins. It was frustrating and rough.” Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa

In May, Rahn finally got the answer to her mysterious medical condition. After her mother took her to the emergency department at Jackson Hospital, doctors informed the 30-year-old that she had a massive cyst located on one of her ovaries.


Rahn underwent surgery and the doctors were able to remove the growth on May 26, just one day after the cyst, which had gone undetected for several months, was discovered.

“This is one of the largest I have ever seen or certainly removed,” Dr. Gregory Jones, one of Rahn's surgeons, said according to a WSFA 12 report.

The surgery went well, and Rahn has been able to go back to her life and wear clothes that haven’t fit her for some time. See more images here but the content is very graphic.


"As soon as I got home and was able to move a little, I tried every shirt I had on and it was awesome," she said. "This dress I have on, I actually have not been able to wear in a year."

She also encouraged people to be their own biggest advocates. If you think something is medically wrong with you or someone you love, sometimes you have to push to get the correct diagnosis
