Hi there, i posted a few months ago regarding problems i was having with repeated smears with abnormal cells resulting in two colposcopy's. A few of you mentioned then the possibility of ovarian cancer. However i put all of this out of my mind as i felt i was doing to much worrying & dwelling on all of this, so, over the past few weeks i have been experiencing symptoms of which when typed into google (self-diagnosis isn't best i know) keeps bringing up possibilities of ovarian cancer.
My symptoms are:
abdominal discomfort, often painful,
bowel habits went from non-regular to regular (rushing to toilet & soft) to now irregular again without changing my diet,
lower back pain, which can become extreme on times but not through extra physical exhersion,
feeling full quickly after eating (though i have'nt lost appetite),
fatigue (although this is normal for me due to hypothyroidism)
a bloated, flabby belly that i cannot shift (although i have had two children!)
Also just before xmas, without even trying i lost 5lb which is very abnormal as with my underactive thyroid i have been unable to lose even a lb in 2 years!!
I guess a few of these symptoms could be linked with hypothyroidism, i know i should go to the doctor with these symptoms but my GP isn't very reliable & have dismissed a few of these symptoms in the past.
I guess i just want some advice,( without stating the obvious about seeing GP(which i will do soon )
& would like to hear how those of you with ovarian cancer got diagnosed, what were your symptoms etc any information would be great
Thanks for reading
