Hello ladies! I’ve joined up so that I have others with experience to share my journey with.
A little background info; I am in my 30s with children. I have been having various symptoms for quite a while now but put them down to my contraceptive implant. These include irregular but heavy periods sometimes lasting a few weeks and then nothing for a couple of months. Constant stomach bloating, sometimes sharp sometimes dull aching down low on my abdomen, very frequent urination, back pain, gas, constipation/diarrhoea, migraines and nausea (vomiting most mornings) and the list goes on...
My gp suspected gall stones at first so referred me for an ultrasound scan. Gall bladder is fine but there is a 4-5cm cyst on my left ovary. The man who did my scan said it was filled with fluid which I’m not sure is a good or bad thing?
I received a letter following my scan last week to arrange a follow up appointment and be told that I’ll be having a follow up scan soon and that I needed a ca125 blood test done ASAP. This was done Friday and I’m told it can take up to a week for results. I obviously googled what this blood test was as I had no idea and I wish I hadn’t 😞
This is all new to me, I have no idea where i stand, what’s next etc until I at least get my blood results and then meet my doctor. I’m exhausted, sore and not going to lie that I’m massively scared.
Any help, advice or just a chat about others experiences would help me massively. Thank you all in advance xxx
