Posted , 5 users are following.

hi just wondered what everyones first symptom was, mine was lower abdominal cramps, went to the gp who thought it might be ibs went back 2wks later as it kept comming and going stools were getting softer, seen a student gp so i asked for some blood tests due to my age 57, went back today for the results and the c125 test was as my gp put it slightly raised! he checked my tummy which was fine then asked me to go back in two wks for repeat bloods he is also reffering me for a ultrasound, this obviously freaked me out and i do suffer from anxiety, cant stop thinking that he played it down due to my anxiety! i also done stool tests which i took in today he said he wasnt concerned about these anyone else have something similiar ? any help would be appretiated.

    My first symptoms were bad lower left side pain followed by bleeding in the middle of my cycle. Then a few weeks later I started bleeding and it didn't stop for three weeks. I had an ultrasound and they found 5cm cysts on each side, with inflammation in the left. I think the left one ruptured. It seems there are so many symptoms and everyone is different! Try not to worry and don't keep googling aso you'll freak yourself out more..

    I have anxiety too so I know how you feel. It's very tough.

    My ca125 blood test came back high so I thought OC.. but it was just inflammation. So that's not a good indication either. Let us know how things go!
