ovarian cancer
I had my ovaries removed a year ago. I am 56 years old.  My stomach,before the surgery and after) has been severly bloated, I am reatianing fluid and I am own 3 different water pills from the doctor.  I am constipated all the time.  I look pregnant all the time.  My ovaries were the size of tennis balls, one took over my appendix and it had to be removed.  I do not remember the doctor saying anything about the possibilty of cancer.  Should I get a second opionion?  I have never been a large person, but it gets worse everyday. Please help

Have you gone for a GYN visit since your surgery?  

Please go to the doctor and discuss your symptoms.

That being said, at the time of surgery, usually biopsies are performed on any abnormalities as well as organ tissue.  If there was any chance that you had ovarian cancer, they would have tested tissue.
