After experiencing increasingly severe leg pain over quite a long period of time, combined with symptoms that until speaking with my G.P I hadn't really associated with ovarian cancer I was knocked sideways by being given a C125 blood test and referred to see a gyn. oncologist within 10 days - I go on this coming Monday.Have just had a call to say the blood tests were all negative, which is good news but I am now getting increasingly concerned after reading several blogs/website info etc. The leg pain is now so severe I'm literally unable to walk without severe pain - have been given Tramadol, Diazepan and co-codamol so feel like a zombie.I'm 56, not had a period for 7 years but over the last few months had occasional spotting and what felt like menstrual cramps.Also after going from being reknowed for my ability to drink countless cups of tea during my working day without having to constantly visit the loo am now experiencing bladder weakness.I was hoping that someone out there might be able to identify with how I'm feeling and wether this is common? My employers are very good, but I'm really concerned after reading so many instances of women suffering for months without any diagnosis being reached.I'd really appreciate if any one could advise what I should be asking the consultant too - thankyou.
