Saw my new Gyno on Tuesday. He says my mass is now 7cm, a 2cm growth in 1 week! He isn't 100% sure that it is ovarian and the bowel and urethra may be involved. He is also not sure that it is a cyst so it is back to being just a 'mass'. He says I am not a straight forward case and it is complicated. I have been put on the depo provera shots, which I will start in the next week. He said with my history I should not be ovulating at all and hopefully the shots will help with the pain as well. As the urethra may be involved, I am having trouble getting my urine out, I have to have a renal ultrasound I a few days. The plan is to have surgery in July. I will be having a laparoscopy so they can have a look around at exactly what is going on. If it happens to involve the bowel or anything else and is not ovarian then I will have to see a different ad have a different type of surgery. Then I will be having a vertical laparotomy and removal of the mass and testing done for malignancy while I am still in surgery. Depending on the results of the tests I may have the left ovary and fallopian tube removed as well. I went back to my GP as my pain is still getting worse everyday. I am not on oxycontin 1 every 12 hours with endone 4 times a day in between to keep the pain always. Also 2 panadol ever 2 hours as well. Even all this isn't totally stopping the pain. I think it is because my period is due, which I have gotten today. Hopefully once my period is over the pain meds will work properly. The back pain is the worst, it just never stops, is eased a bit with rest, but as soon as I move again it intensifies. It is going to be a long ten weeks but at least I know something is going to be done. I just hope the mass doesn't grow to much bigger in the mean time :)
