Hi I'm seeking advice or any type of similar stories.... I just turned 19. Throughout my summer I've spent it going back and forth to the emergency room, OBGYN, and radiologist. Not knowing anything serious was going on internally. I began to feel back pain and it become more and more excruciating. To the point it was unbearable, I would cry. I went to a nerby hospital to get an X-ray. No broken bones or fractures. The only thing they seemed to see was that there was a lot of stool in my colon. So they led me to a room with a bathroom in it & gave me an enama to take. I never took one before let alone even heard of it. They expected me to insert and apply it on my own. LOL. I tried, a little went in. BARE MINIMUM. I'm still trying but then I hear noises coming from the room I'm in. Highly frustrated & slightly embarrassed that there was a whole nother Paitent and his family in the room. Where I'm suppose to handle my business. But anyway I stop because Well let's be real, its pretty uncomfortable! I never even got a quarter of the enama in. I exit the bathroom straight into the privacy of this patient and his family& out the door back to the hospital hall way to tell my mother what happened. She was pretty mad that the hospital mad a screw up like that, but even more pissed that I didn't finish the entire enama.she felt like it was a waste. I informed the DR & she suggested that I take Motrin for the back pain.( I was already taking pain killers like Motrin Tylenol ect) But the pain never decreased. A few days passed. I'm feeling worst by the second. The ONLY thing that was keeping me sane was the power of my Hot Shower. Feeling the hot water hit my skin was soothing & a big relief I took about 5 showers a day. My mother noticed my obsessesive neeed to shower. We purchased an Enama from our local CVS Pharmacy. After getting the much needed assistance from my loving mother the Enama has been fully applied. Now the only thing to DO, ( LOL) is wait. So I waited. And waited. & waited, but I began to get worried, as my stomach bubbled up I read the instructions on the back of the Emma box. It says if you don't perform in a certain amount of time, to seek medical attention & that's what i did. My mom suggests that we try a different hospital. We get to the hospital & the first thing they suggested was an enama. Oh great !! so once again I have another enama being inserted, this time it's by a nurse Who knows what she's doing. She had it in and out under 10 secs. waited waited waited again.... NOTHING not even a turd. After hours of waiting to get Seen, they sent me to get an ultrasound. from the ultrasound the DR notice Cyst on My Left & Right Ovariers. The next step was to get seen by my OBGYN. I made the appointment ASAP Because I wanted to know wtf is wrong with me. My GYN prescribed to me about 4 different medications to lower & vanish the cysts I had & to also help soften my stool. The meds for me moving my bowels worked but Let's look at the Bigger Picture. My next appointment was 3 wks later so he can do an ultrasound to see how the cyst we're going down. But no. Not for me. The cyst on the left side seem to remain the same But the one on my Right ovary got tremdously big. So he referred me to go to Zwangers Radiology. So I go to Zwangers for an ultrasound because they specialize in thiesw areas. This DR at Zwanger seen the same thing my GYN did. So Zwanger had me come back for a MRI. The results from zwanger were sent to my GYN after a few days of anxiously waiting. I return to my GYN & the moment I saw his face I knew I wasn't walking out of his office with a smile upon my face. He told me That I could Have a Tumor on My Right Ovary. I was speechless. The thoughts running through my head were: how will this affect my body, do I have cancer, can I get cancer , will this spread, can I die, will I be able to have kids, can I get pregnant , will this make my menstrual cycle irregular. the next things being discussed between my GYN, mother & I is of course what happens next? The word Surgerys comes out the GYNs mouth. And right there in that moment I felt, afraid. I was told that laparoscopy was going to be performed. My GYN then referred me to his surgeon who was going to work on me. We arrive to Her Office ( dr. C ) & get straight into everythin, she goes on to say that my appendix will have to be removed as well as the tumor and my right ovary. I had appendixes & if it could've ruptured I could've died.. We set a date for surgery, which was the following week. I'm scared for my life, I just Pray to God everything goes as planned. I say goodbye to my boyfriend and mother as its time to prep for surgery. All I remember was laying down on that hard metal table. & praying. Then waking up after the surgery, the nurses informed me not to shower until the day after next,also that I shall not lift anything over ten lbs for two weeks, nothing goes into the vagina for 6 weeks, try not to use stomach muscles when sitting up, get plenty of rest but yet make sure to walk! Stupidly, I had unterviurse with my boyfriend about 3 & a half wks. That day I wasn't into so we stopped but I felt pain the day after when my body was at rest. I didn't know did I cause more pain on myself or the pain that I was feeling from the surgery?! I only had decided to have intecourse because I read online ( not everything online is true) that everyone heals different. Some say two weeks, some also said their DR told them whenever they felt up to it, , some always said 3 weeks.6 weeks pass n they say I can resume activity again, they informed me that my tumor was benign THANK YOU JESUS. I began doing what I was doing prior surgery. But I was still feeling sharp pinches n pain which The nurse checking me insured that I'm still healing n will be tired. It's now been exactly Two months after surgery.( 1 month after the last check up) . I just started working at another job weeks ago as a cashier, some products are heavy.. Should I quit because I do labor work? Why aren't I healed yet?Should I still feel back pain or is something else causing this? Sorry my story was so long.. Felt good to let out everything.
