On August 3, I found out what was going on with my huge belly. I have Ovarian Cancer, and a tumor that is as big or bigger than a basketball (30cmx30cmx20cm). It's no wonder I haven't been able to breathe properly, eat much, or have normal bowel movements or menstrual cycles. They found cancer cells in my uterus and rectum, with a more elevated amount in my rectum. They said they could see my left ovary, but not my right ovary and are assuming that the tumor stems from that ovary. I'm so scared that waiting for insurance coverage through work has cost me precious time, that in that time this tumor has grown so fast, and the cancer is spreading. They haven't staged it yet, but I'm going to see a Gynecologist/Oncologist this Tuesday, and he'll most likely perform the surgery. I'm also told that he will have a Rectal specialist with him, just to make absolutely certain that the cancer didn't start in my digestive system or colon. I'm SO NERVOUS! Mom died of cancer two years ago, and Dad is a survivor. Aunt Donna and Uncle Ralph on Mom's side both have Colon Cancer (diagnosed within a year of Mom's Diagnosis and two years of Dad's) Now Dad has to face the cruel reality that his little girl has cancer to. I'm so scared...I'm desperately afraid.
