I was wondering if someone could give me some advice? My mum (nearly 50) is having alot of gyne problems and is seeking help from her doctor but i want to make sure they are checking for the right things so to speak i guess? Ok here goes!
My mum has been having
*persistant pelvic pains
*tiredness (which if anyone knows my mum it in itself isn't good!-live wire )
*problems going for a number 2
*urgent need to urinate
*extreme pain during sex
*heavy feeling in womb area.
Most of the above have only got worse in the last 3-6 months.
Her doctor sent her for a ultrasound which was last Monday i believe, on Thursday she was extremly bloated and in pain so rang the doctor who said ultrasound results were not in, so take pain relief and he would see her next week.
At the U/s they found she has fluid in her pelvis but also has PID which they think is from a previous operation. The U/s lady told my mum she needed to see her GP within a week.
In most cases i know it isn't cancer, however could you tell me
a.) if the ultrasound lady had seen something to worry about, would she have just sent her back to her GP or would they have called a doctor in to go over the scan then and there like they would if you was pregnant?
b.) would the scan alone have noticed if she had cancer ie should the gp be doing other tests?
Im a very laid back person in general but i am seeing my mum in alot of pain and something doesn't feel right, she has text tonight to say she has taken her self to bed due to extreme pelvic/period like pains (she doesn't have periods) this is so unlike her its untrue.
She has had all the basic tests ie STI (!!) pregnancy (!!) UTI, anemic etc
Thanks in advance
