Need advice from you wonderful ladies out there

I was wondering if I could get a some advice. I am 45 and used to be of pretty good health. I've been having strange symptoms now for going on 12 months. Now it has progressed and having these on a daily occurrence. I experience these symptoms. Feel very bad like the flu most days, bloating, slight bleeding after intercourse, bowel problems, lower back pain, abdominal pain and pressure, extreme fatigue, and most recently, nausea, indigestion, feeling full and it feels like my food is getting stuck in my throat! Back in Oct  doctor and a gyno for these symptoms and they have run abdominal scans. They cannot find anything. Gyno did find a cyst on ovary-1.9cm. But did not seem to concerned over it. I have been researching these symptoms and they all seem to lead to ovarian cancer. Wouldn't something show up a scan if it was cancer? Should I get a second opinion? She didn't run a CA125-did you guys have this ran right away or after a CT scan showed something? I hate to bother with this but my symptoms are getting worse and I'm at my wits end. I think my doctor is thinking it's all in my head but I KNOW something is wrong.  If anyone has any experience with this please let me know what you think or what you experienced. For all of you struggling with this disease please keep fighting and God Bless you all sisters. :)

Hi There
it sounds like you have had a pretty good check up
you could ask for a ct scan
you should also ask about an endoscopy - that is an evaluation of you stomach.
I hope everything works out
best wishes

I have two complicated cysts and almost all the same symptoms, did you have a transvaginal ultrasound done recently? Change docs if you really think something is wrong. Always trust your instincts!
