Please can I ask if anyone has had a similar experience.
At the start of Jan my job changed and at the same time I came down with really uncomfortable IBS symptoms, cramps every morning until about lunch time and often making me nauseous and sometimes vomiting. I went to the doctors about 3 weeks ago and said I thought it was stress - he ordered bloods to be done. My left side was particularly sore. Two weeks ago I was in a minor car accident and immediately after passed a kidney stone - which I thought might account for the cramps and nausea. I also developed a UTI trying to pass the thing. Next day they did my bloods and started treating the UTI and ordered an ultrasound to check for more stones.
At the ultrasound she said she kept asking about my periods and said she had been asked to check my ovaries as my CA 125 was only a little raised - 38. I didn't know it had been tested. She found a really small cyst. And said they would look at it again in 6 weeks and see if there's any change.
Due to a lot of run ins with OC and various friends and family members, mum instantly offered to pay for a private hysterectomy - rather than wait 6 weeks. Now I know it's only slightly raised result and I know that it is unreliable test. But it is really tempting. Since the stone I have cramping all day. Am I crazy for being tempted?
