I have been in and out of the doctors since Last monday the 15th feeling incredibly ill and it's still ongoing. I'll try and narrow this story as short as i can because it's a continuous thing and i'm so fed up with it all.
A few years ago i was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovaries, my left ovary was larger than the right, and both had multiple cysts....nothing was alarming at the time of the scan so i've been back every year for a check up. I have pain in the pelvis anyway, and if i cough or sneeze the pain is so sharp i curl up into a ball and cry. As the years have gone on i've been at my worst episode with this since last monday, My complaints where of things that aren't the usual for me, Vaginal discharge occasionally smelly, ranging from bright yellow/brown/bloodish tinting and white, pain when having intercourse with my 6 year partner, and bleeding that can be so bad it goes down my legs and others it's just brownish, frequent urination and difficulty going to the toilet, nausea and feeling very weak unless i lie down...the doctor suspected a water infection, so i was given antibiotics for 3 days, had blood tests done and a follow up appointment. Nothing changed, so i was given further antibiotics as they then suspected Pelvic inflammatory disease....nothing changed and it's been a few days now...my stomach has been more windy and having sharp pains since i started all this medication...i went into work thinking i was fine, i wasn't the pain was so bad i was in tears, i was immediately sent home and got an emergency appointment with the doctor (AGAIN)...it wasn't until then they decided to send me for a scan (now i have a copper coil in and they were suspicious of it not being around anymore and that i could have a reaction in the body to this)...The big boss at the hospital asked why i hadn't had a scan done sooner...and asked me to come down asap....i had an outside one done and an internal scan done, the coil was in place and where it should be and it was so painful when they examined me, the left ovary was the most painful....i cried they looked at me with a speculem (the third one in a week) and said i'd need to stay in hospital overnight and they will be taking me to theatre...
I was so happy that FINALLY i was going to get something done about this, i've suffered for so long with the pain and the sickness etc i tohught i'd be able to carry on as a mother as normal and as a work colleague and be me again....they got me all pysched up for it and told me my operation would be in the morning......morning came i hadn't eaten or drank and a doctor came in (a different one to the one who told me to go forward with the operation) decided not to bother with the operation due to my age, and that there would be complications involved and a desire for more children would be affected by this as the whole ovary may need to be removed. I was so upset i probably shouldn't have told them we wanted another child...:'(
A third doctor came along, and wanted to check me for coeliac disease as i was rushed into hospital on sunday with a black bowel movement, which i only had one occasion of....they already knew i suffered with IBS but wanted to treat me for this with painkillers...yet my main area that was bothering me (and i was STILL weeing alot) was my left side of my pelvis...the demon ovary. So ANOTHER doctor came along and said he didn't think it was IBS so let's stick a camera up both ends and make sure there isn't any internal bleeding....nothing was found and they still continued with the ibs diagnosis...another doctor came back to see how my ovaries where doing and i told them i still feel the same as i did when i came in......IBS was there main concern...and no more things where being done with my ovaries and i got so fed up i discharged myself...i know that sounds so stupid but i couldn't take it anymore and i just wanted to come home and have a cuddle and cry...which i haven't stopped doing.
I have my scan which was booked ages ago on the 30th of this month, so only a few days to go....if nothing has changed then i may be back in hospital again...but what's the point when nothing will be done? I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired.....i'm so ill and it hurts so much that i just want it all to end....
I'm struggling to make much sense on here as i'm feeling very lightheaded and have major cramping in my left side...so if i've not been very clear please let me know, i just wanted some support and some advice as i feel so low atm. I'm still not at work because of how weak i feel and i fear this will cause me to lose my job. Apologies for taking up most of the page...hopefully i'll hear back from someone and get some help x
