Severe pain

Posted , 2 users are following.

I have been diagnosed with a 4cm ovarian cyst to my left Ovary.  They say its fluid filled so does not look cancerous.  I have a higher reading blood test for the ca-125.  I have been on the menapause for 5 years.  I have had 2 days of pain in stomach with loose motions.  My lower back aches and I feel sick.  My stomach is like a football.  The pain is all below my ribcage and I feel generally unwell.  I have just had a further blood test and waiting the results and also having another scan in a few weeks time.  I feel the pain is getting worse so went walk in centre who have sent me home saying its not a gp surgery.

      I went to walk in centre last week and just sent me home, its nearly a month since I had a scan so not sure if cyst has grown.  My Gp wants to see me because of the rise in blood test so hope they can help and let me see a consultant and thanks again for your infomation

      Thanks Anne

      When I had my scan I saw a specialist around 2 weeks after and he offered me the operation 3 weeks later.keep pestering the doctor and tell them your in agony.surely they have to refer quicker then.good luck
