Hi my MPN family,
I have not been to well lately, feeling full on the smallest amount of food, my stomach being bloated and when I did eat it was like someone blowing through a straw in my stomach and creating lots of bubbles. Well, I phoned my doctor at 1 yesterday and was in her office by 1.30. When she examined me she said my body was full of air that couldn’t get out then blew me away by saying my uterus was so huge she thinks it’s partially blocking my bowel. She said she didn’t like what she was feeling and has ordered blood tests today and an urgent scan at the hospital. I am so scared as I did what I tell people not to do and googled my symptoms. I ticked every box for ovarian cancer. I have had breast cancer which puts me at a higher risk but dear a God, surely I can’t be so unlucky to have a third cancer? What I need to know is what happens with taking my Hydroxy? I was told I was probably looking at a hysterectomy so I was wondering if anybody has had one while on Hydroxy and how long they had to stop it for. Keep fingers crossed for me please. If I am diagnosed with what I think it is I don’t think I have the fight in me anymore. What makes me angry is 4 years ago my old doctor sent me to the gynaecologist at our local hospital. No tests, just an examination and she stupidly told me I should see a sex counsellor! Now I am angry that she didn’t do more. Anyway, if someone can help regarding Hydroxy and surgery I would be so thankful.
