Doctors initially told Rahn her pain was due to weight gain. We went to dinner and someone asked me if I was having twins. They would also volunteer to load groceries for her.
"I do remember telling my mom and busting out crying they were going to fix it". It turned out to be a 50-pound cyst on her ovary.
It is not unheard of for these fast-growing tumors to reach weights in the double digits, but the current record appears to go to the cystadenoma that was removed from a 38-year-old CT woman earlier this year.
Rahn said she went to several doctors who told her to "change her diet" and "lay off the sodas".
Rahn immediately underwent surgery. "But I had such an awesome support system, I didn't have a chance to be anxious about anything".
After months of unexplained stomach issues, pain, and weight gain a Montgomery, Alabama woman now has answers.
"As soon as I got home and was able to move a little, I tried every shirt I had on and it was awesome", Rahn said.

T20 tri-series: Pakistan win toss, opt to bowl against Zimbabwe

Now, Kayla says she's excited to get back to work and life sans 50-pound tumor.
Rahn found there was a 22.5 kilo cyst in her ovary. "I knew something was wrong". "What was interesting is that she never had the shock and awe; she had this relief, like, 'Of course there's a mass'". After a series of tests, a large mass was found in one of her ovaries.
Her surgeons confirmed it was an ovarian cyst and removed it. They account for about 15 percent of all ovarian tumors, and - in contrast to cancerous masses - tend to occur in younger women. However, they can be risky if they grow larger, often causing pain and bleeding that can force the ovary to twist or rupture.
It's unclear how long Rahn had the cyst, but her surgeon estimated it was more than a year.
Rahn is recovering from the operation and said she was happy to be able to wear clothes that she had outgrown in the past year.
Now that the giant growth has been lifted from her body, a weight has been lifted from her shoulders. She told the Washington Post that the experience has taught her the importance of trusting your instincts and being your own advocate when it comes to medical issues. "It is a benign condition", OB-GYN Dr Gregory Jones told WSFA.
