Just back from Radiology. Radiologist took a second lot of photos after speaking with her superior and showing him the photos she had already taken. She told me not to worry because he is a perfectionist and often asks for more photos. She said she couldn't see anything to worry about but noticed that my right ovary was enlarged. She also said she wouldn't tell me if something was wrong anyway.
I am worried about ovarian cancer (only have one ovary) because just prior to my last period (first in 3 months), I became bloated with gas and fluid. I also developed distention around my waist. I had an upper UTI around that time too that caused blood in urine. A urine dipstick test showed positive for Leukocytes in the urine but nothing grew in the petri dish. Once I started antibiotics the blood in the urine stopped.
I have been:
- Having frequent urination (sometimes urine feels hot but not burning).
- Feeling full after small meals.
- Suffering upper abondimal pain (sharp shooting above belly button).
- Bloated with gas and fluid.
- Belching and Flatulence.
- Nausea now and again but that might be due to anxiety.
- Lower back and upper back pain.
The bloating has reduced by 80%. The distention around the waist is still there. The back pain has resolved. A pap smear returned normal.
I am going through perimenopause and put these symptoms down to that. I am worried it might be ovarian cancer. I had benign cysts in that ovary about two years ago and a thickened urterine wall.
