I first joined this site because my daughter has had ovarian cancer and is still suffering effects of same and receiving treatment on benign growths to shrink them.
I then found I had some suspicious symptoms. My dr asked for a CA-125 which came back normal. He also sent me for an ultrasound. At the ultrasound the sonographer said from her point of view all looked fine, but also said something about if it was something to do with the bowel it would not show up on ultrasound, a CT scan would be needed. Today I found out from my dr that the ovaries were actually obsured by bowel gases. I am feeling a bit confused as surely the sonographer did not see my ovaries clearly and meanwhile symptoms continue. My dr has given me anti-spasm tablets for my bowel. Fortunately I will be seeing a gynaecologist in two weeks time. Has anyone had a similar confusing experience?
