My last post was about a CA125 blood test, which I have been told was okay, although me being a worrier I have read too many horror stories that it is not really a reliable test, so I don't think I will feel better until I know for certain, 100%!
Anyway, I went on holiday last week and I was okay, however I got back on Monday, and on Tuesday I started feeling really poorly. Sharp pains in my sides, and feeling very light headed and dizzy. When I bend down or twist the wrong way I get excruciating pains in the area of my ovaries that painkillers don't seem to touch. I rang my docs yesterday who asked me to go in straight away, the doctor then told me to go straight to hospital to have bloods taken to see if I am anaemic. I also mentioned that I am due to go on holiday on Sunday, backpacking around Europe... My doctor recommends I don't go, just in case I fall ill when I am out there. My dr said she thinks my cyst (which was 6cm on my last scan) may be growing, and if it grows any bigger it could twist on itself and cause extreme pain where I would need urgent medical care. She told me that my travel insurance would not cover me if this happened, and it would cost me a fortune to have this operation abroad.
I really don't know what to do. I have been given stronger painkillers which seem to put me in a daze... But the sharp pains concern me. I am worried my cyst may be getting bigger, and on my ultrasound they have found a tumour with solid parts in it on my other ovary, too. My appt with the gynaecologist isn't until 24th September, and my dr has said that if I don't go on holiday there is no guarantee I will be seen any sooner.
Has anyone else had similar pains to these and can shed any light on what might be wrong?
