Update ladies!!- Been for scan today followed by appt with same consultant as previous. At first appt he told me he fully thought cyst would have disappeared within couple of months. Scan shows cyst still there and grown little bit (about 5mm). Previous report said ?endometria?heamagerric (spelling??) Now they have put ?dermtoid. Heard the radiologists talking about calcified areas within. Ok consultant then asking what would I like him to do?? !!! He feels my bleeding and the cysts are not connected but couldnt say for definite. Also no conclusion as to what cyst really is unless removed and look under microscope/. Ok.
The long and short of it is I was basically made to make decisions of what happens next and beause of the bleeding and because of the lack of explanation and the fact ca125 still double ( but yes fallen since 1st test) I have asked to have cyst removed and he will do a hysteroscopy?? at same time to have a look around.
Hello.. cyst not gone away, raised ca125, different opinion today of cyst to opinion 2 months ago I assume this means cyst looks different now, and pretty much 3 out of 4 weeks per months some level of bleeding...did I really have to make that decision or is this a new modern take on medicine?? let the patient decide.
Have I made the right decision? It is only through info from lovely ladies on this site and advice that I even have the knowledge I have.
Any similar experiences or thoughts would really help.
Should I have asked for another ca125 ( i meant to ask to confirm trend.). I have had 2 with results of 145 then 76. Not sure how long wait till op but obviously not being done as urgent.
Confused but feel little bit better as something being done.
