Ovarian Cancer?

For the last 4 months I have had pain on the left side of my stomach down to my pelvic area, a nagging pain sometimes dull or sharp near and around the belly button, also consistant bloating that will not go away in a circle around the belly button. Had endometriosis removed, symptoms still came back I don't think it was the endo causing this. I don't know what to do anymore, I feel like my doctors gave up on me. Could it be ovarian cancer? The GI doctors said they did everything they could with all the tests that came back normal.

Did you have a pelvic ultrasound?

Hi Alex,

Yes I had a pelvic ultrasound and transvaginal. I recently had laproscopic surgery for endometriosis, he said my ovaries looked fine, but I thought in the early stages you don't see or have a hard time detecting it. My symptoms came back since the endometriosis removal, so the gyn is convinced that it is not related.

The GI doctor was also not helpful since I've had an endoscopy and colonoscopy they've given up.

My other doctor refused to give me the CA 125 blod test b/c she said there are false positives.

My symptoms will not subside, it's so scary and stressful. I feel like the doctors have given up on me...

I don't know where else to go
