When I came to this site originally, I was so touched by the support and advice I received, so I would like to call on you lovely ladies once more, if that is okay?
My symptoms haven't changed over the past nine months, I think I just got used to them after being told it was nothing. I lived on painkillers. My periods were normal, albeit quite heavy. So, I moved away, and am now living with some friends.
I noticed a couple of months ago, when I first arrived here, that I was urinating all the time - more so than before - I have been keeping a tab on it, and on average over the past month, I am going 19 times a day. The pelvic pain has gotten worse, and my periods are all over the place again. My last period was Sept/Oct and lasted for a month. I have only had spotting since then. The spotting has been every day, until last week. I also have the odd watery discharge. Bloated belly, back pain and sore legs waking me up at night.
I had a scan a couple of weeks ago, and apparently I have a number of small fibroids on my uterus, but the ovaries are fine. The last scan I had in June, showed nothing at all.
I found out over the weekend that my late mother had a hysterectomy when she was about 28 because of bad cysts on her ovaries.
I am going for a CA 125 test on Monday.
Whew....after all that, here is my question. Is it possible that I have had these symptoms for all this time, and that it is only getting worse now? This will be the first time I have the blood test and I am worried. Or if it was ovarian cancer, would it have been obvious by now?
Thanks for any advice and help.
