I posted recently about a recent ultrasound scan I had. It was my second one after episodes of blood in my urine and pain in my pelvic area. The result after the first scan was the consultant I saw saying 'he did not trust the scanner who had done the first scan, and he wanted to do his own'. ( The scanner was a doctor, and he noted ' a small renal cyst on my left kidney, and mild hydronephrosis on the right kidney with some post void urinary volume). I waited for the second scan and the person doing it at a different hospital said she couldn't see any enlargement and no cyst, but she told me that my left ovary was slightly enlarged, with the right looking normal. So this was an incidental finding my doctor said.
I later received a 3 lined letter from the consultant saying 'everything was normal with no mention of the swelling on the ovary. I asked at my G.P surgery today for the hospital report. It stated ' Both kidneys appear normal. There is no evidence of hydronephrosis and no obvious calcification's demonstrated.
There are no obvious focal lesions in the urinary bladder.
The left ovary is slightly enlarged measuring 3x3.5x4.5cm (is this tiny?). The right ovary is normal in size and structure. Normal anteverted uterus with endometrial thickness of approx 5.2mm. No free pelvic fluid noted'.
My worry is with an history of CIN changes 20 years ago, endometrial hyperplasia, fibroids and a left ovary that once contained a corpus luteum (common?) and continued pain lower left side, It could be something which gets missed.
I have also been to my doctors today for results from a CA125 blood test I had last week. She told me it was alright at 20 (range over 35 a worry she said.) I asked why I was still suffering with pain, she said she couldn't answer. She felt my tummy area and I nearly jumped off the couch. She later said she would re-refer me back to the 'Gyne', but I am wondering if it should be a different kind of 'Gyne' due to the swelling of the ovary?
Also received Vit B12 result of 155ng/L (was 157 in Aug) range 150-620ng/L, Folate of 4ug/L (was 3.6ug/L in Aug) range 3.1-19.9 ug/L and Ferritin of 19ug/L (was 16ug/L in Aug), range 15-200ug/L my doctor said these were all within normal range.
I have been suffering with all sorts of symptoms and wondering whether they could be due to the Vit B12, Folate or Ferritin levels?.
Or whether due to the swellings?
Or the suspected 'Hughes Syndrome'?
The urologist will discharge me next week my doctor told me, but I am wondering if I should ask him to refer me on to a 'Gyne?'
Any idea's or suggestions please?. I would be very grateful.
Sorry its a bit long!
