Hi everyone again, just looking for anyone’s thoughts or experiences.
9 months of symptoms pain, bloating, heartburn and last 3 months have ramped up with August having new symptoms including heavy mid cycle bleed, left kidney type pains, increased bloating, pain in left ovary and all over tummy and back and leg pain! My period hasn’t arrived this month yet since mid cycle bleed so not sure what my ovaries are doing?
Had a private scan and found 53mm fluid filled cyst on left ovary! Everything else looks normal.
So Gynaecologist appointment today who says not cancer as CA125 normal! 🤯 and I shouldn’t be having all these symptoms for such a small cyst and not sure re bleeding as that’s weird.
Only way to understand is to do laparoscopy. He can see me privately for about £5k in early October or NHS clinic where it’s a 30-40 week wait!
Feeling much calmer about any immediate cancer risk though still mistrustful of a Dr who can say “well you don’t have cancer as CA125 is fine” so not sure I’m entirely satisfied!
He says cyst is unlikely to go by itself if it’s really been there that long and is causing all these symptoms and even if it did go he’d be looking at spleen, bowel, ovaries, stomach etc while he’s in there to see what’s causing pain, bleeding! Maybe endometriosis he said? I don’t identify with many of the symptoms of that though?
My mum has offered to pay for the surgery but I’m worried I’m being dramatic and should see what happens with my period and the next month of symptoms before I take her up on her offer! Or would you just get going as something not right?
Thanks, I know my problems are nothing compared to any of you but it appears you guys are more clued up on all things ovary, maybe more than my Gynaecologist so might have some wise words xx
