Has the pain continued throughout these last 3 months? I have had lower abdominal pain for months now, with lower back pain as well. Both have gotten progressively worse. I had the CT scan with dye that showed an enlarged lymph node in my abdomen, it measured 2.6 which I guess isn't too big. I just had an ultrasound and am waiting on the results...I've had every symptom there is for ovarian cancer...and am a nervous wreck...if this comes back 'normal' I don't know what to do...I KNOW something is wrong in my lower abdomen and back...
yes the pain is constant 24/7..i have lower back pain and sore hips as well yet my doctor says there isnt anything wrong...even today my doctor said she cant feel any swollen glands but i can and they are also tender..i feel like i dont have any answers bcos they say everything is ok but no explanation for my sore abdomen..im worried they are missing something even though im told a ct scan is good at showing any abnormalties..i hope everything is ok with you..keep us posted
A CT scan is fairly accurate, but not totally accurate. Anything very small, like under a cm can be easily missed. The enlarged lymph node is quite small, but it does mean there is something causing it to be inflammed. But, things as simple as a cold can inflame them. Have you gotten your US results yet? I know the healthcare system can be very frustrating, but keep after it! You know your body better than a doctor, so don't give up. I really do hope your results for possible cancer came back negative, however.
Good luck to you.
Don't let any doctor pat you on the head and send you home if your "body" or "quiet little voice" tells you something is going on.
If I hadn't pushed my gyn I doubt I would still be here.
You need to advocate for yourself when it comes to your health. Hang in there.....don't you dare stop looking until you get your answers.
