First, thanks to everyone who has posted their story. I have just spent about 2 days reading through every discussion, which has helped.
I am in Canada and newly diagnosed with a 12cm "mass" on right ovary. My Dr mentioned ovarian cancer when she called to tell me. It was discovered from a transvaginal ultrasound as my periods have been bad all my life but was recently getting some ovulation cramps and lower back pain that woudn't go away.
Just went for another ultrasound today at the hospital, should know tomorrow more about what is going on.
I'm 35 yrs old, no kids, no history of ovarian cancer in my family. But lots of other cancers. I consider myself to be pretty healthy - don't smoke or drink, and routinely exercise, eat organic, etc.
I am pretty mad at myself for not going in sooner, also really upset because my Dr seems to be thinking the worst and both ultrasound techs have seemed very, very serious by the end of my ultrasounds.
I was able to quickly glance on the screen after the one today and it looks to be black....which I read might mean fluid filled?
I went back to my Dr today to get laxatives as my bowels are not moving at all and I'm peeing constantly. Got the rest of the week off due to stress and being conspitated although Dr wanted me to go to work to get my mind off things. I told her I wasn't taking laxatives and going into work, LOL.
I am trying to remain positive but it's hard. My husband is petrified and will barely speak to me right now. I feel so lonely. I am a christian and have been praying constantly asking God to spare my life. I feel like that might be overdramatic but I am just so scared.
I am also worried because the techs and Dr have been acting so seriously. I have been refered to a gynecological surgeon but if they suspect cancer at all, which ask to be referred to a oncology gyno.
I appreciate any morale support as am feeling lonely with nobody really to talk to. I am praying and hoping for a postive outcome but am having bad mood swings and depression.
Thanks in advance
