I need your help.
I was diagnosed with Ulcerative colitis in December 2009 when I was 34 weeks pregnant. Had a flare-up then that lasted 3 months. Flared again in Sep 2011 and was put on prednisone (3 months). Managed to get in remission shortly after.
Been in remission ever since.
However, 6 weeks ago started getting pain in lower right abdomen that radiated few inches from my belly button down my lower abdomen and groin toward my right leg, and also my lower back and felt urgency with urination.
Went to emergency and they ruled out appendicitis, UTI, hernia (blood work, urine and ultrasound all came back fine). Had colonoscopy few days later, Ulcerative colitis not active.
Had a CT scan of my abdomen to check for kidney stones. Results negative, ovaries and uterus look normal, no masses or tumors, no hernia.
Pain is still there, started dull/annoying and now sharp/stabbing. It comes and goes. My right abdomen seems a bit swollen (to me at least, maybe I’m just seeing things now) and it is causing discomfort with my c section scar. Pain comes on more when I’m sitting or bending over. Few doctors suggested endometriosis. Going to see gynecologist in September (no earlier time available) Blood test done for CA125 – came back fine.
My last urine test came back with traces of blood in it but no infection.
So my doctor is sending me to see a Urologist to investigate this further. I guess he will be doing cystoscopy using local anesthesia. yikes Not looking forward to it at all
I’m a bit worried, is it ovarian cancer, endometriosis or bladder issue
In a bit of a panic mode as I need to know what is causing this .. Any thoughts ?
Thank you for listening
