So the past 4 days I've had pain in my ribs and a almost permanent stomach ache in the middle of my stomach. My ribs are hurting both sides. I have 4 fractures in my spine but thought they had virtually healed themselves as I had no more problems. But after wrapping presents rather awkwardly on my bed my back went back to its old ways really painful and I think I'm back to square one with that!! Since that happened my ribs hurt and my tummy ache too. Previously I have had a couple of episodes of awful pain really high up in my stomach right above my ribs cage luckily I think after some food diaries it appears to be carrotts that caused that!! So this is different and I'm terrified.
I saw my cancer nurse on Monday and commented re tummy ache and said I was worried as I was imagining all sorts...Pancreatic cancer!!
It was suggested I see my GP. I saw A GP today not my usual one. He felt my tummy etc read my notes and said it could be a trapped nerve on my lymph nodes that are in my pelvic region. As I didn't have a problem lifting my legs etc he thinks it's more likely theymph nodes. I have a prescription for Codeine. I am absolutely pooing myself. I am so scared the cancer is all in my stomach and causing all of this.
I last had chemo...my first Carboplatin alone but stopped so November and December didn't gave any as white bloods too low. Due to hopefully restart January. Ca125 below 30 last time and last scan October. Major organs clear. But Oncologist was worried it was near my kidney. I'm weeing etc all ok not being sick. I keep crying as it's Christmas maybe my last. I hate feeling unwell. Don't know what to do or who to turn to. So scared. This stomach ache is so depressing constant it's soul destroying I can't do much.. Sorry so long and moaning. Dreading Christmas day if I'm like this.
I know many are worse off than me. I am sorry to go on.
