Ovarian Cysts?

Edited , 3 users are following.

For 6 months I've been having bloating, nausea, heartburn and feeling super full even though I ate little to nothing! For them to tell me it was IBS 4 times! I've changed my diet exercise and nothing has changed! I had 2 ER visits in that time one being this past week! I was told to go on FODMAP diets and exercise no results. I could eat something like eggs or a slice of toast and bloat for the entire day! I basically begged for them to run any test that would help me find out the answer. They ran an ultrasound and x-ray and they found out I have two ovarian cysts that most likely have been causing the bloating for so long. That night I felt like I was having excruciating cramps! I have a follow-up Tuesday morning to see what is actually wrong!! I’m also worried about what's going to happen next since I wasn’t told how big the cysts were!!! I’ve been vomiting water as well since the ER visit a few nights ago!. I’m also 23 image

    Hello!

    Although, it took a while to get on the right path after so many misdiagnoses, you are close to getting to a plan of action. If you are vomiting water, I would call your doctor today or go been seen at a hospital. You have the classic symptoms of Ovarian Cancer, but large cysts, especially two can also cause your symptoms and I am praying it's the latter. Ovarian Cancer is usually misdiagnosed in the beginning and with your age, doctors tend to come up with other illnesses or conditions rather than cancer. Did the ultrasound sound say what kind of cysts you have and the size?

      I'm still quite uncomfortable I go in tomorrow morning. I just got the results and my ovarian cyst is 1.8 x 2.1 x 2.2 cm on the left side and right side is 1.0 x 1.1 x 1.6 cm I don't know how much that can really affect me despite there size I cant make bowel movements or go the the bathroom as much as I think I need to go! my results also said that it might be hemorrhagic or corpus luteal on the left and the right side is paraovarian cyst! I can only drink water in moderation as of now despite how much of a dry mouth I have! Is there any tests I should ask for something that should be checked out?!

      A CA 125 test measures the amount of the protein CA 125 (cancer antigen 125) in your blood. A CA 125 test may be used to monitor certain cancers during and after treatment. In some cases, a CA 125 test may be used to look for early signs of ovarian cancer in people with a very high risk of the disease.
