I have had pain for 3 months or better. Finally got to painful and had to go to the ER. They did blood work and an ultrasound, which in the ER the said I had a right ovarian cyst(bleeding). Didn't say much more than try to keep your ovaries. Finally got into the GYN and he said almost nothing about the cyst I had to ask about it. He talked more about the enlarged uterus. Did an exam and then said I have three options: nothing, wait it out, or go in and take a look. Told me it all depends on how much I like my organs (was trying to joke with me a little). Said it was all inside and that he can’t do much right now. Problem is I have an auto-immune disease and a history of cancer in the family. My blood work is all over the place: low platelet (181 in Feb to 118 now), white blood count high, red blood count low. I have read the symptoms of ovarian cancer and I fit almost all of them. Wouldn’t they say cancer if they thought it was an option after the US. I don’t know what he means when he says “inside”. I have seen him lots, has delivered my kids, my ectopic, and my miscarriage. I decide to have the surgery and look to know for sure, said if have to take organs will do it then. Does this mean he is expecting too? UUUGGGGHHH, I make myself crazy
I had the scope done, don't see my doctor till the 18th now. He told my hubby that there are some cysts and not worried about them. Found a piece of skin that was stiched to somewhere it shouldn't have been and cut that. Also said things looked normal, but would have to remove my women parts early. Toke a sample for pathology. I had a bleeding cyst, that is why we went in. I am not feeling any different. Bloated, feel like I could puke all the time, back hurts,tired. Surgery and nothing changed. I keep going back to cancer in my mind.
