Yesterday I went for another ultrasound, which thankfully got pushed forward by my GP. Even though I drank 2 pints of water, I apparently had 100mls in my bladder so they offered an internal or to come back another day. I basically demanded the internal, as I was currently in pain and thought this could be my best chance to see if anything comes up.
I've had 2 internal scans before (1 in July and 1 in August) and they were uncomfortable but NOTHING like this one! From the moment the sonographer used the internal probe I had the worst cramping/stabbing pain ever and started crying. The sonographer offered to stop, but I told them to continue as I just wanted it over and done with.
For a while he couldn't find my right ovary, I have no idea why as internal ultrasounds are closer to your ovaries so it shouldn't be too hard. I had to push down on my abdomen where my ovary was for a good 5 minutes before he could find it.
I left the room shaking and crying and my boyfriend had to carry me back to the car, I struggled getting out of the car and since then I've been in severe pain and I can't bend over, it feels like someone is squeezing my right ovary A hot water bottle helps a bit, but I've ran out of painkillers until tomorrow. I've also been spotting slightly (even though I've had a mirena fitted in February and was on cerazette for years before and haven't bled in 6 years).
I just made this post to get it off my chest really, I feel so upset because of this pain and I KNOW nothing is going to show up on this scan, as usual! I was kind of worried that he couldn't find my right ovary, but I assume if it was anything serious he wouldn't have let me leave the hospital?
Now I have to wait 10 days to go back to my GP. I just feel so worried because I'm in so much pain and nothing is showing up on scans or blood tests, I feel like it's all in my head sometimes!
