And I got all positive news. They have concluded it was a bad infection, which has cleared. No idea what it was or how it got there, but, it's gone. Bad scarring, but, they have decided to continue monitoring rather than operate unless symptoms persist or worsen. They was no free fluid found in the abdomen so they don't know why I have extreme swellings. GP has referred me to a bowel specialist for investigation in the meantime so who knows.

Thank you to all of you lovely people who were kind enough to reply to my worries. I'd also like to thank everyone who has ever written a post on this forum, reading your journeys, symptoms and above all the positive attitude that came across while you travelled on this horrible journey, I found very reassuring and helpful in my own fears. You've no idea how much of a help you all were.

I want to send warm and positive thoughts to you all, whatever stage of the journey you're on.

Have a joyous and peaceful Christmas, and wishing each and every one of you all the very best.

P.S. Pass on the message to everyone to not ever ignore symptoms (I know you all do anyway). I buried my head in the sand for far too long and was told I probably had OC. After my experience, I too keep passing on the message and will continue to do so.

  • This is great news shook-up. It's good they're continuing investigations to find out the cause of your symptoms - and great if you will continue to spread the word about ovarian cancer and encourage women to know the symptoms and see their doctor if they are worried. Early diagnosis saves lives.

    Ovacome have little business cards with the BEAT message they will send you to leave in strategic places or hand out.

    Best of luck with your new plans. xxx Annie

  • Thank you Annie. X My grandmother died of OC, that was nearly 50yrs ago before I was even born so things have happily come a very long way since then. All those subtle little hints the body throws out at you, yet I chose to ignore. It's so important to listen to your body and not to be fobbed off. Again I'd like to praise my GP surgery for getting the ball rolling so fast and fighting my corner.

    Where can I get those cards from?

    Wishing you love and strength on your journey Annie. X

    Thank you again.

  • Great news for you, so now splurge on the Christmas shopping and enjoy the festivities. Keep checking in on us though from time to time wont you ?

  • I certainly will Suzuki :-) A community that no one wants to find themselves a part of, but, once you find yourself there, sharing the worries and fears, understanding words you'd never even heard off before taking ill, I want to hear how people are doing.

    As for Christmas, I'll go away a few days before, if, and only if I feel up to it. The past 5/6 months have seen many breaks come and go due to ill health that I no longer plan anything.

    I will spread the word about OC symptoms.

    All the very best to you all. X

  • I understand what you mean, I plan any breaks at the last minute. We did go away on a weekend during the summer but came home because tummy played up a bit and the weather was so nice but these things happen. I did get away to Nice in Sept, my brother is living there temporarily so he was my blanket if I got sick which I didnt. I enjoyed the heat and the walking. We stayed in a hotel back from the promenade so it wasnt too expensive. We have a wedding in February in Kerry so we will head back there for a night or so
