I am 49 years old and have been going around in circles with the medical profession for over 6 months now.
The short story is that I presented at my GP's with weight loss. My friends and children had started to comment on it so much that I thought I had better get it checked out. At this point I had lost nearly two stones in about a year. I had gone from 10 1/2 stones to 8 1/2 (unintentionally I might add) All the bloods came back OK. I was experiencing vague other abdo symptoms so had endoscopy and CT colonogram but both were OK.
In mid July I first started to experience pain in Left lower abdomen ( I am sad and have been keeping a record of all symptoms). I told this to the GP but it was dismissed.
In mid August this LIF pain became more persistent and I became reliant on using a hot water bottle to soothe it. The pain in constant. Nothing makes it better or exacerbates it,
By December My weight had gone down to 8 stones, I felt ghastly. Desperately tired and with a constant pain in my left lower abdomen. I returned to my GP with a friend this time to try and get some answers. When I repeated to her about this pain she finally referred me for an USS that was done on 18th December. This revealed "something on my left ovary........that looks like it has blood in it". I was told that it will be re-scanned in 8 - 10 weeks. In the mean time I have seen a General Physician who also requested a Ca125 - result was 24. This month I also experienced, for the first time, mid cycle bleeding.
Any suggestions of what I should do, would be really gratefully received. Thank you so much
