Discomfort and pain


Good morning ladies.

Last night I hardly slept, my back and my bladder were really playing up.

It felt like I had a water infection but it wasn’t if that makes sense. Such a dull ache in my bladder and I was up so many times emptying a full bladder, that is once I could actually wee! I also have such a dull ache in my back.

Is this part of the symptoms or just a coincidence?

Thank you lovely ladies.

❤️ xx

Hi Jo,

I'm so sorry to hear you've had a bad night, coupled with this crazy heat you will have been well,"fed-up," bless you.

Forgive me, I'm no expert just someone who has also been on this journey and hoping I can reach out and support you a little.

May I ask if they have mentioned an ovarian cyst at all?They can be so troublesome(as many ladies will tell you). However, the majority are benign, just irritating as hell. I've had many over the years and they've caused me to feel every symptom associated with OC imaginable including frequent and unforgettable toilet trips. I think I know where every department store toilet is located in the North East of England!

It was only last year that I had my first malignant tumor in my right ovary. This was picked up at ultrasound, I didn't get as far as CT/MRI. Next stop was surgery within 4 weeks and the histology report was presented 6 weeks later. An agonizing wait.

I know it's so hard to wait, we all,"want to know," but, not too long now.Rest assured, there is always this wonderful forum and the Ovacome team are available Mon-Fri so it may be worth giving them a call for reassurance as they really are so very helpful.

On a serious note, I know it's impossible not to worry. The internet has opened up so much opportunity to explore our health fears. I have also suffered with Endometriosis for years and frequent trips to pee coupled with pain in the back are common place. Whilst I wouldn't wish this upon you, it will be a more favorable outcome.

There are many of us with positive stories...I will be praying you are one of them.

Please do get in touch if I can help further...here to help, always.

Best wishes,Clare xx

Thank you Clare.

I have only had a CT so not been told anything yet.

It’s been a uncomfortable day, I have had a lot of discomfort in my pelvic area which seems to be putting pressure on my bladder thats making it feel like I have a water infection but I am passing water fine with no actual pain! (No burning etc) it’s so hard to explain symptoms. The problem is the pain isn’t so bad to stop me from doing anything but it’s enough to make me feel crappy.

Thank you again
