Back in Oct I went to ER-found cyst on my ovary. Pain and pressure not going away did a Laparoscopy and found endometriosis. I have taken the Lupron Depot shot for 3 months now. NO HELP. I am still bloated, feel like I should throw up all the time, pain and pressure stomach on down. I have lost 2 to 3 lbs. a month since Oct (I don’t lose weight easily). Small amount of food make me feel like I had a 7 course meal and my lower back kills. I know the surgeon took a biopsy and no cancer, but was that just of the endometriosis. The biopsy showed it was endometriosis, would or should he have seen if it is ovarian cancer. Talked to Doctor Nurse and she thinks this is not endo and thinks I should to see my regular doctor. I have an appt, but what do I ask for—should I ask for more cancer screening. Any advice out there?
I had another ultrasound and it showed,
Heterogeneous appearance of the fundus with suggestion of a
fibroid measuring approximately 2-3 cm, although this is ill-defined
and poorly visualized. Cesarean section defect. Small nabothian cysts
I also know that I have endometriosis; doctor doesn’t feel my bloating and pain, nausea
is coming from this. Other doctor is thinking that I need a hysterectomy. Any thoughts to help me?
