Oh yes. I am awaiting surgery to remove 16 cm cyst on right ovary and 7 cm uteran fibroid. The masses displace your other organs and cause swelling throughout your abdomen. This can definitely put pressure around your rib cage and upper stomach. I am suffering from this as well. It took me a while to get a referral to a gyn because my family doctor thought my problems were ulcer related due to where I was initally having pain. Frequent urination (me too) and a lower appetite are all typical.
What are your doctor's saying? When are they operating?
Thanks for replying! I am sorry your are having the same problems.I haven't had a comfortable moment in so long I forgot what it feels like. I get my second trans vaginal ultrasound on Tuesday by my doctor rather than the imaging place I went to the first time. She thinks theres more to this than what my report reads after she did the pelvic exam. I assume we will set a surgery date than. I now have follicur cyst on the inside of my thigh (very painful) and stools have turned in the opposite direction. Now watery. I am still looking for the light at the end of this tunnel.
Hi. I was wondering if you ever found out what was going on. I had some of the same symptoms & was just curious. I had a 4cm hemorrhagic cyst on my left ovary, & I was having unbearable nausea & upper stomach pain among other symptoms. I am not hungry either & have frequent urination (like 15 times in an hour and a half). If I eat anything, my stomach is bloated, painful to the touch, & my nausea is worse. My stools have been everywhere-- constipated one day & just water the next day. I explained to my PCP that I really did not think it was a result of my cyst, but he sent me to the gynecologist anyways, and the gynecologist agreed that she doubted it was the cyst. After a barium swallow & EGD, it was found that I had a huge duodenal ulcer & gastritis. I'm waiting on the results to see what kind of an ulcer it is & waiting for the results of my HIDA scan, which will not be of much use to you as your gallbladder is already removed. My solution to my problem is that I have not been eating much of anything. If I don't eat, the nausea & pain is still present, but not nearly as bad as it is when I eat. If I drink as much water as I normally do, 64oz++, I'm going to the bathroom every half an hour, so I'm not drinking nearly as much as I should be.
Any information about what was found would be very much appreciated. Thanks!
