Large Cystic Mass??
I have been experiencing heavy bleeding, back ache and the most evil abdominal pains for three months (doctors fobbed me off telling me it was stress induced??) and was admitted into hosiptal with appendicitis. After blood tests that was ruled out and after a week in hosiptal a large cystic mass was found in my lower right pelvic region. It is 12cm in diameter with the largest cyst being 8cm. There is a solid part showing on my US that might be my ovary. I have been discharged and I am being treated as an outpatient (discharged 9/4) I will be seeing a consultant this Wednesday to arrange surgery, I have been told they might have to cut me veritcally due to its size and location and that one of my ovaries is coming out. I recieved a letter today for an MRI for the 5/5. When I was discharded the consultant said that depending what tumour markers showed on my bloods would determine further tests??? If it was a simple cyst they would just pop it etc...sounds vile?? Why do I need an MRI??
I am 24 and all of this is about daunting, losing one ovary is fine but I would rather it all happened now as all this waiting is very frustrating. The pain is agonising and the pain killers are not really doing anything at all.
Anyone who has any advice or has been in a similar situation I would appreciate your feedback.
