Hi everyone,
2 and a bit weeks ago I had like a tummy bug.. no vomiting few loose stools mega cramps felt sick couldnt eat was completely wiped out for 2.days.

It took about a week to get my appite back.

2 weeks and 3 days later I still have tummy problems.
One minute im constipated then next I have diarrhoea.
Achey legs on and off,
Very windy noisy tummy. Feel slightly nauseous in evening.
Slightly bloated but I have so much wind in there.

Silly me googled and now think I have ovarian cancer sad

This is how I felt when I got pregnant!

I'm sure it's not cancer but if you're worried go get looked at <<holds hand>>

gillywillywoo Fri 26-Apr-13 22:15:37

You're working yourself up and it's very likely to NOT be cervical cancer!!!!! <hugs>

Go to the doctors and tell him/her your symptoms.. It's probably something else entirely and you will feel very relieved and a bit silly for freaking out so much!

In your title you say cervical but in your OP you say ovarian. Your symptoms could be any number of things. Why don't you see a GP?

gillywillywoo Fri 26-Apr-13 22:16:34

I meant that in the nicest possible way! smile

ladythatlunches Fri 26-Apr-13 22:17:19

Maybe just tummy not right after tummy bug? sad

EuroShaggleton Fri 26-Apr-13 22:17:37

It sounds like IBS.

batteryhen Fri 26-Apr-13 22:17:53

Step away from Dr Google! It's much more likely to still be your tummy settling down. I had food poisoning once and it kept flaring up for weeks after. When your gut takes a battering it can take a while to recover. Why not pop to the GP next week, tell him your concerns and see what he says? He might also send off a poo sample to see if all the bacteria has gone xx

ladythatlunches Fri 26-Apr-13 22:17:55

Oh god yes I do.. what a tit I am. I ment ovarian

saycheeeeeese Fri 26-Apr-13 22:18:07

Could you be pregnant?

ladythatlunches Fri 26-Apr-13 22:18:58

I honestly think if someone stuck a needle in my tummy I would just take off with the wind.

Its gurgling now..noisy tummy

batteryhen Fri 26-Apr-13 22:19:08

Oh and my DH got a tummy bug last year and has ended up with IBS from it x

ladythatlunches Fri 26-Apr-13 22:19:14

No dh has had a vasectomy

saycheeeeeese Fri 26-Apr-13 22:19:34

saycheeeeeese Fri 26-Apr-13 22:20:42

Get loads of those yogurts with the friendly bacteria in you, yakult?

ladythatlunches Fri 26-Apr-13 22:20:47

I would probably drop dead with shock if I was pregnant. So would dh smile

ladythatlunches Fri 26-Apr-13 22:21:27

Oh I could do. My mum takes those. She has ibs also

VivaLeBeaver Fri 26-Apr-13 22:23:01

gluten intolerence?
bad uti?

quite possibly an upset/inbalance in gut flora since your tummy upset.

See a GP.

ladythatlunches Fri 26-Apr-13 22:24:41

Def not pregnant.
Could well be ibs I have pretty much every symptom there.
No uti, all ok down there.
Think I will make one in the week.

Such a worrier. And my tummy is so loud

chocolatespiders Fri 26-Apr-13 22:25:15

Have you tried Buscapan for the cramps?

ladythatlunches Fri 26-Apr-13 22:27:14

The cramps are only there when the wind starts. Its high up not low down pains.

digerd Sat 27-Apr-13 07:17:30

The swollen tummy signs of ovarian cancer are not digestive and don't affect that. It is also not wind but fluid that must be drained.
A scan on your ovaries would put your mind at rest, then the real causes can be investigated and treated.
Good luck

chocolatespiders Sat 27-Apr-13 08:40:28

deflatine- for trapped wind. Wind pain really hurts.

How are you today?

CoteDAzur Sat 27-Apr-13 09:16:18

I had those symptoms, stretched out over a week. I would wake up better, then gradually get worse through the day, with tummy aches, a bit of diarrhea, etc.

It turned out that the milk I was making my coffees with was several weeks past its date. I wasn't drinking enough of it to be properly sick, just a tiny bit each day. I through that bottle out and the problems went away.

Could it be something like that?

IHeartKingThistle Sat 27-Apr-13 09:22:59

It takes a while to get right after a tummy bug. I have health anxiety too and this is also very likely to manifest itself as digestive symptoms, ironically. I could self diagnose myself with something different every day sad.
