Hello...if this is long I apologize in advance. Here goes.
Six years ago I was diagnosed with IBC, told I had 18 months, showed up for chemo and was told they made a mistake. They never did find out exactly what it was, but did a mastectomy and it went away.
I took clomid and pergonal for five yearsprior to all this, had some lost pregnancies, but now have three great kids, so yes I had fertility "issues".
Mom, aunts, grandmother, great-grandmother, and younger sister all had or currently have breast, colon, orovarian cancer. Some died oflung, but it was always from a metastisized cancer.
I am having extreme pressure in my abdomen, difficulty eating...like maybe a half cup of food a day, problems with B.M's and pain in my lower abdomen. Basically my stomach feels like I am seven months pregnant with twins. I have had this off and on, but now it is constant. I had to by bigger jeans yesterday.
I am overweight...I call it baby weight cause I had three in two years, but my youngest just turned ten....LOL
Six years ago I was referred by my breast surgeon to a Gyn/Onc who felt sure i had OVCA. He did surgery and came out telling my family I had beautiful, healthy ovaries.
I had annual exam at regualr gyn in July. I have called and asked if they did a CA125 (I asked for it because of family history), but no one is calling back.
I am not in pain, just uncomfortable. I see where most of the peopleon here had pain severe enough to go to the ER. I do not. Should I just wait it out, or make an appointment to see my old GYN/Onc?
Again...I apologize for the length.
