This all started just after Christmas when I noticed a lump in my lower stomach, stupidly I did nothing for a while and realized that the lump was getting bigger. When I finally went to the doctors after having to convince him that I was not pregnant he sent me for urgent ultra sound, and made an appointment with a specialist. At the time I did not realize that this was oncology. The ultra sound confirmed that I had a 14cm x 10cm x 8cm cyst on my ovary. After seeing the specialist who scared the hell out of me and sent me for a CT scan (the cyst had grown in 1 1/2 weeks to 15cm x 11cm x 10cm) and cancer blood tests said I would be in within 2 weeks and have a full hysterectomy. My blood tests and CT scan came back and everything was clear for cancer. At the time I was over the moon felt elated. However they said there was nothing they could now do for me and I would need transferring. After nearly a month I did not hear anything. I have finally got in touch with the next consultants secretary who has said that I am looking at the end of June before I will have the operation. This is another 10 week I look 6 month pregnant now and cannot sleep at night I can’t say I am in pain but I am uncomfortable all the time. Please don’t think I am moaning as I am so glad to have dodged the cancer but now I just feel that I have been dump to the bottom of a very long list and left there. I cannot help worrying as to how big the cyst is now as my last scan was 4 weeks ago!!. Has anyone else had to wait this long?
