After suffering many symptoms, irregular bleeding, abdominal, left leg, hip and back pain, gas, bloating, and tiredness, my doctor ordered many tests. Firstly internal exam, which showed a scar and brusing, then an abdominal scan, while there i had an internal scan, the results of this showed a cyst (size of golf ball) on my left ovary and fluid in the womb. I also had the blood test CA-125, which came back normal. When I went to see my GP about the scan results, he did seem a bit cagey and in my opinion at a loss as to what to say. He did mention cancer, and when I choked and started to well up didn't reassure that it could be nothing, he just handed me the tissues. He gave me a form to give to reception to receive another form to make appointment with a gynaecologist. When i got home, i didnt have to time to phone, as it was nearly the school run, when I returned I had a plumber coming out (never rains but it pours!) so still hadnt phoned. However my home phone rang twice and mobile too. WHen I finally did get to phoning the appointments, they had already tried to get in touch and had appointment already made for me, as I hadnt noticed on form it was an urgent 2 weeks max appointment. I am worried, I wouldnt be human if I wasnt, but not sure which way to turn. Also not sure how accurate or reliable on its on the blood test is. Sorry for going on. and thank you.

What a shock. I'm so sorry you have this horrible wait ahead of you.

I think it is really good you are going to know what is wrong so you and your doctor can make a plan and deal with whatever it is.

You can get through this. flowers
