Hi everyone, I am from Ontario Canada....our blood labs are somewhat different so I am noticing, so I will add my results down here written out and I'll try to find the conversion instructions, cause any help, advice or info from anyone on how to find a defineate diagnosis, I would be very grateful and appreciative..Thanks in advance<3 <3 :)

I went to ER for pain deep in my left ovary area, had a mammogram booked a few days later for lumpy  left breast and hard lump and pain in left armpit, I had also recently been feeling unwell, a little more tired than normal which I chalked up to being a mom of 4 and my hubby was back and forth in The Czech Republic and Canada for work...so I was just trying to explain it away with realistic theory!!!

When I went to emerg I was examined and a portable scanner, they aren't extremely sensitive but more just used after hours mostly for ectopic pregnancy observation and low fetal movement in 2nd and 3rd trimesters, but it showed they was some unknown blips on the screen, but in Canada because our healthcare is free, if your not on the verge of death, they say ok heres what going to get you thru to tomorrow to see your family doctor and for people like me who don't have a family doctor, its"oh well you need to find one"!!!  I couldn't agree more but where are they... I have checked every town, city and area within an hour drive of my home in every direction....doctors here don't want patients who need a doctor, they want patients who don't ever need a doctor or ever go to see one, well my kids have their pediatrician so thats the most important part....I just wonder sometimes how far this will go before someone figures it out, so ofcourse I have to be my own advocate for my life!!!
Well heres the results from the beginging of this journey, stay tuned for more.....lol
p.s you will see be try to lighten my struggles often with something cheesy and giggle worthy, whats the good in life, if you can't laugh at the funny times!!
