Tired, where are you? Get a second opinion immediately! Don't wait. There are other things that can cause your symptoms. Make a big stink. You need help now!!!

In fact, the more I think about you having to wait, the more concerned I get. Are you in US?

Having read all you say, all I can think of is to suggest you write all these facts down, make an appointment with your GP and say you need help and support. Very good luck x

It sounds like you need to have these tests done earlier, for your peace of mind. So I would not wait. Ring the secretaries or your GP and see if they can fit you in earlier. You need to sometimes push for things and manage your health yourself and waiting for tests is the hard bit. Failing that try and keep busy filling your time with good things and treats and things you enjoy. This will bring positivity into your days and reduce worry. Much love Nicky xx

Like the other ladies have said push for earlier appointments, your CA125 isn't excessively high but it's above the 'normal' range and there's a cyst with vascular flow that shouldn't be there that needs sorting. I would suggest speaking to anybody who will listen to get this sorted sooner rather than later. We sometimes need to be really proactive to get results, our health is the most important thing we have and yours is obviously not as it should be. Contact your doctor, like Nicky says write everything down, and try to get earlier appointments. If you don't have success you are entitled to have second opinions. I hope you get some speedy responses here as you are obviously really distressed and you shouldn't have to be. Take care and let us know how you get on. Sending big hugs and lots of love ❤️ xx Jane
