Kayla Rahn said she was having stomach issues so severe, “I couldn’t even walk to my car without losing my breath.”

The 30-year-old said she had been trying to lose weight but kept gaining pounds, WSFA reported.

"I legit looked like I was a solid nine months pregnant,” Rahn told the television station. “We went to dinner and someone asked me if I was having twins. It was frustrating and rough.”

Frustrated, Rhan underwent a series of tests at a Montgomery hospital. That’s when doctors found the large mass on one of her ovaries.

"I do remember telling my mom and busting out crying they were going to fix it. I knew something was wrong," Rahn told WSFA.

Rahn immediately underwent surgery. At that time, doctors removed a 50-pound cyst.

"The technical diagnosis; it was a mucinous cystadenoma. It is a benign condition," said Gregory Jones, an OB-GYN at Jackson Hospital. "This is one of the largest I have ever seen or certainly removed.

"We are very excited things went well for her."
