Previously had a borderline mucinous tumor (massive - removed March 2010) and benign mucinous cyst (Nov 2011) another cyst which disappeared/ burst Feb 2012. Now ultrasound shows another 7cm cyst which is not entirely simple! Currently have a blood pressure of 200/125. started medication which did nothing, doubled it and get reviewed at the end of the week. I am 33 and also have a bmi of 32 (I know I am not helping myself with such a high BMI) but really, a BP that high with no identifiable cause! What is going on!!! Normal ECG, normal cholestrol, normal fasting glucose - just a raised ESR which I have had for the past 2 years. No CA125 but not pushed for it as I don't think mucinous things secrete it, therefore an expensive test with no significance.
Planning to have ovary removed and ?womb 'electively'. Have an appointment with consultant in Nov. on zolodex and HRT. I have been reading about PMP and slightly worried that I may have it? although I have never had free fluid in tummy. I have really bad reflux resistant to gavison!
Had my large cyst drained and removed laproscopically in two parts which has always made me really anxious, partly because I consented to a semi open op due to the fact it couldn't be done. Surgeon told me a medical student suggested cutting it up, rationally I know that the surgeon was an expert and knew what he was doing, but then I have a fleeting nagging doubt!
I know that there are lots of people out there with needs much greater than mine, more maligant and life threating. I am just in pain and at a loss of what to do! Sorry to moan on here when lots of you are going through a lot worse than I am, but appart from getting a grip any ideas?
