Hi - glad to have found this site. About two weeks ago I went to the ER with severe pelvic pain, like nothing i'd ever felt. I described it as severe gas build up and the worst cramps in the world at the same time - times a thousand. It was the only way to describe it. The ER doctor said I had a mild UTI, and was going to send me home but I felt it was something worse than that. I begged him to check. He did an ultra sound and ended up admitting me to the hospital because he found a tumor on my ovary. He also said I had a ruptured cyst and it could be causing the pain. I was hospitalized for a week, saw different doctors, and one OBG that really didn't provide me with much info just told me I had a yeast infection, UTI, and the tumor was nothing to worry about, just had some fluid from the cyst that probably caused hte pain... that i'd need follow up every two weeks to keep an eye on the tumor (sounds like he wanted more money than to treat me ). eventually I got a little better and went home. IT's been two weeks - I also didn't mention that I missed a period last month. So anyway - hospital was two weeks ago. Yesterday I started feeling the worst pain i've EVER FELT in my entire life in the pelvic area. I also had burning with urination, took AZO pills to get rid of that pain..but the pelvic pain has only worsened. Also, yesterday I began to have a tiny bit of blood - but more brown than anything. Today the blood is almost black, it's not getting red at all... Last night I could barely urinate, it's like I can feel my bowels and insides try to open up to go to the bathroom and the pain worsens and then I can't go...it's so hard to even go to the bathroom now. NOTHING seems to help, showering nothing...I haven't had a bowel movement in a few days, it seems to come on like a horrible stomach ache and cringe inside, and then get a little bit better (not much better just a tiny bit) but only for about two minutes and the pain comes back again....I'm sitting at work trying to figure out what to do. I have IBS - but this seems worse. I can barely walk, the pain is constant and it only gets WORSE on and off. The OBG appointment isn't until Friday and I can't imagine living with this type of pain for much longer. I read up on tumor mis diagnosis' for yeast infections, uti's - etc....I just feel like something is NOT RIGHT. My co worker told me about endo and it seems to be the same symptoms....please if anyone has any suggestions let me know. Should I go back to the ER? The OBG told me to go back to the ER but i'm almost scared to.....does it sound like I could have endo? Should the tumor be checked out further? Has anyone else had this kind of thing happen? Issues just two weeks after treatment?
