been waiting for my scan, finally it came yesterday, the main reason for the scan was to check on a large cyst that they found 3 months ago, that they suspected was a haemorragic or endometrioma - quick recap in case you haven't come across me before:
heavy bleeding, contraction like pain when on period, periods became very irregular, left lower pelvic dull, tugging pain everyday, with sharp, stabbing bursts of pain from 30 secs to several hours, lower left back ache sometimes going down leg, plus all the other things that go with it, tiredness, unable to carry heavy stuff, driving is hard, walking or even standing some days is hard.
first scan last apr (11) small fibroid, cysts, very thickened lining
july 11 - biopsy on lining, hysterroscopy done, mirena coil fitted
oct 11 - was told to persevere with mirena even though causing major problems, and lose weight
mar 12 - mri, found large cyst, still have the fibroid, report says it is on the fundus and indenting the womb, says womb is anteverted and retroflexed :/ no idea what that means
yesterday at my scan she literally scanned the top of my belly for about 15 secs, then did the wand thing, which was about 30 secs, told me the cyst has gone (which is good) and goodbye! i was gobsmacked, but just ended up walking out anyway, i thought they would have used the time to completely check everything again, they know i'm having this trouble, and that now i'm having bowel trouble, i wish i'd said something like but i just felt like i was wasting her time, plus she was sat with the wand in her hand (and sorry if too much info) but it had blood on it, as i was on my period, which i know they take no notice off but it was a big issue for me.
i just think they should've measured the thickness of the lining again at least, to see if the mirena has reduced it as its meant to, i dont think it has as i;m still bleeding so much.
managed to see my gp this morning, she said although quick there was a good report, ok fair enough :/ she said they wont do the lap yet, until my bmi is under 30, thats a long way off but she said she will write to them when its get to 35 - she is going to ask them to remove the mirena and consider the endometrial ablation, so fingers crossed they will do that.
feel a bit happier than i did yesterday, just get fed up with the hospital looking at me like i'm wasting their time, i dont want to be there anymore than they want me there, but i believe that the pain and symptoms i have is not everyday normal - hope everyone is having a good day xxx
