Since just before Christmas I have got stomach or abdomen ache/wind pain/side and back-ache every time I eat. Saw my onc 4 weeks ago who told me my CA125 was up from 200ish to 450ish - not a huge jump but he asked for a scan and kidney function blood test in case I am going to need chemo for the fourth time.(Finished 6 x carboplatin in July 2011). I didn't have these pains when I saw him,although I had been a bit constipated, but went to my GP immediately after Christmas to explain that the discomfort was stopping me eating and keeping me awake at night when it gets worse. He prescribed Oramorph as Tramadol, which I had been taking on and off to ease severe shoulder pain, was not also alleviating the pain in my stomach/abdomen. But I am loathe to keep taking morphine for what might just be indigestion or maybe I have developed IBS. I see my onc this Monday but in the meantime I just dont know what to do for the best. Currently typing this with a heat pad on my abdomen and have succumbed to 5ml of Oromorph.
Any thoughts please? Sorry this is so garbled. In the 7 years since I was diagnosed with OC I have been lucky and never had any pain or bloating in the relevant area so dont know if it's to do with OC or not.
Hoping you're all starting the new year off feeling better than I am at the moment!
