I had keyhole surgery 2 months ago to remove a 9/10cm cyst which went smoothly, quick recover and enjoyed being symptom-free for a good month+ ! (I also had open surgery back in Jan 2012 for another 9/10cm cyst and also had a baby in March 2013 - no complications)
So the dreaded bladder presure, frequent urination symptoms started, along with fatigue and irritability. Then general pelvic aches and pains and stabbing/pinching/pulling pains around hips. I went to the GP and my urine dip test showed up (probable) infection. I think it was white blood cells and high glucose in wee. Never been so happy to have an infection!! I really hoped that was it and nothing more sinister. They gave me anitbiotics, took bloods and sent another urine sample off to the lab and booked me in for an ultrasound anyway. I've had terrible thirst and they wanted to check blood sugar levels as that's a key indicator of diabetes.
Still waiting on bloods and ultrasound referral to come through but the urine sample came back from the lab clear! Then the second urine dip test showed up high white blood cells and blood in urine (just a little and not visible in urine sample). That's indicative of infection - but the lab results were clear!? Confused what is going on is an understatement!
The course of antibiotics has done *something* as the frequent urination, thirst and bladder pressure has gone! However the aches and pains have not This was only last week and today my period has arrived with a lot of right sided hip/ovary area pain and cramping. It's also quite early, as was last months. I used to be very regualr 30 day cycle at the end of the month, then last month it was 25/26th and now 18th.
The other odd symptom is left arm pain. Of course google says I'm dying and go staright to A&E I'm having a heart attack(!). Last week my BP was fine at the GPs. I got pins and needles in my arms and legs last time I had a cyst but not this arm pain I don't think. It's like a dull ache inside my arm.
GP is away today and I'll find out blood results tomorrow evening (hopefully) when he's back in clinic but we're away tomorrow and Wednesday so I won't see the dr til Thursday earliest.
Anyone got any insight into what the hell is going on with my body??
