Hello all. I stumbled acrossed this site while doing research and thought why not. Don't really have a lot of people in my life to talk to about all this and those that i do talk to just brush it off like its nothing. A little history: I have 2 children, I was 19 and 21 when i had them. At 25 i had an abnormal pap and they did 11 biopsy's on my cervix. I had pre-cancerous cells and they decided to do an endometrial ablation. I haven't had my period since so thats a plus. (31yrs old now) I've had ovarian cysts since I was 11. At 27 I was diagnosed with Endometriosis. The doctor i was seeing at the time wanted to start me on a shot and 3 months later still no shot so i said forget it and dealt with the pain. 3 weeks ago i went in for my annual and spoke to my new doctor about the endometriosis. She had an ultra sound done. I am also on meds for anxiety and insomnia. When i went back a week after the ultra sound to have my meds changed a different doctor told me that i needed to be seen by and OBGYN asap because the ultra sound was showing a complex cyst growing on my left ovary. When my regular doctor called me a few days later to talk to me about the ultra sound she told me she couldn't give me a lot of details and if i was done having kids i needed to push for a hysterectomy asap. I've always been in pain and just assumed it was the endometriosis. Always bloated no matter what. I have horrible back pain,left side, which i associated with a car accident i was in in 2004. I was told that I have 2 slipped discs. Now that i'm doing all this research I'm freaking myself out. I probably shouldn't be on google til after i see my OBGYN. But im reading everyone's post about bloating and back pain and I'm a little nervous about what this could be. So my question is should i have them test my blood, CA 125? But with that being said it would possibly show high because i have endometriosis. Just hoping for some advice. Super nervous.
