I have a huge family history of ovarian cysts and cancer; My Mother, sisters, aunt and cousins all had cysts, Mom had ovarian cancer but they caught it early. I had emergency surgery for a ruptured ovarian cyst years ago. We were told to have a ca 125 done every 6 months, that we are high risk for ovarian cancer. The last year my health is going downhill rapidly. I thought it was just my age at first (54), but it isnt. Started with weight gain, bloating stomach, not able to hold my urine--I embarrssed myself regularly so I wore depends--Im too young for that! Its changed to severe lower back pain that radiates to the left hip )the only ovary I have left isd that left side). Cant sleep more than 3 hours, I wake up in pain. Heartburn with most food, very nauseated every day and extremely tired and short of breath. I cut my work hours down to 2 days a week and I can hardly make that (I go to work with a pain pill in my pocket). I have trouble eating anything, it just doesnt move. Ive lost 9 lbs in the last 5 weeks even though my activity is zero, couch potato from the pain. I have trouble standing for more than 2 minutes, walking any distance without pain and even sitting in a car is difficult for longer than 30 min. I didnt injure myself at any time. The last few weeks I now have diarrhea even though pain pills normally constipate me. Im getting cravings too like when I was pregnant. I also have had a few bouts of left sided abdominal pain that is sudden/sharp and brings me to my knees, then totally dissapears. The only meds I take are for high BP, pain pills, ditropan and phenergan for the nausea. I have an MRI scheduled and also a ca 125 in a few weeks. Im going to ask for a sonogram after I take the MRI. Sometimes I wonder if my imagination is going wild, but this is affecting my life all day every day. I guess Im asking if anyone had these type of symptoms when they got diagnosed with ovarian cancer?
