Thinking I may have stomach cancer
WynterWynter 14 hours ago 2 Replies
Based on symptoms I've been dealing with the last year or so I'm deathly afraid I may have stomach cancer. Of course I'm no doctor, but can't help thinking the worst. It started out as a bad burning sensation in my stomach that would also cause heartburn. It was constant and every day. I bought prilosec orc and that seemed to help for a while, but eventually needed to up the dose to 40 mg daily because 20 mg wasn't working as well. Also, if I miss my dose or forget to take it for even one day, I'm very sick the day after and the heartburn and burning starts creeping back up again. I'm just so worried you guys. I was finally cleared for an endoscopy about 2 months ago but then found out I was pregnant right after, and now the doctors say I can't have the endoscopy until after I have the baby. So more waiting I guess. It would seem I would have some kind of stomach ulcer, however I feel like if it was that then the prilosec should have cleared it up by now. Any advice would be appreciated. I tend to over worry and analyse things so I'm hoping this is one of those situations.
