Hi, found this site a few days ago and have gained lots of information and comfort from the members of this site. My story goes back to July 2011 when I experienced extreme stomach pain which was diagnosed by my GP as a water infection, to cut a long story short I had 7 more repeated infections with one more episode of extreme stomach pain. Each time I had back pain, pain in my left groin/hip area. Since these have started I have a constant dull stomach pain. I have put on half a stone in weight (something that i've never had to worry about in the past). In Nov 2011 I was finally sent for an ultrasound scan and had bloods taken. My CA125 level was 17 and nothing showed up on the scan. I was then referred to the urology dept in early Jan 2012 who informed me that I had never had a water infection and he felt that this was probably a gyne problem and sent me for a MRI scan which I had a week ago. The day before the MRI I ended up in A&E with extreme stomach pain put they wouldn't admit me because MRI was next day!! Have just received results to GP saying ovarian cyst on left ovary and fluid in the pre-sacral area, I have no idea what this means and have to wait until Sunday to see my GP as the doctor who phoned me with my results didn't feel qualified enough to discuss them in detail, of course this has got me worried.
It would be great to hear from anyone who has an idea of what this may mean, I've been signed off work for the last two weeks and am going out of my mind with worry.
Thanking everyone in advance
