I constantly doubt myself! I doubted myself for years before finally being diagnosed - should have had more faith in myself really, I knew that something wasn't right but was constantly fobbed off by the docs. I finally had a lap last year after a scan showed I had developed a 10cm around my right ovary, along with other bits elsewhere. I am now experiencing some symptoms again and am worried that I am getting the cysts back. I wasn’t told that I would have any follow up scans to make sure everything was ok, so now I’m wondering whether I should go back to the docs to ask for one, or whether I'm just being overly cautious. You see, doubting myself already!
I think unfortunately because of the nature of this disease and the wide range of symptoms it produces it’s hard not to doubt yourself sometimes! Before they found anything I sometimes felt like I was making a mountain out of a molehill, so it was a relief to finally have a diagnosis.
It’s not a great way to spend your birthday is it (I had mine the day after my bday last year!) but I hope that the lap goes well on the 14th and they can provide some relief! xx
