Hi, About 2 weeks ago I had medium vaginal bleeding for 2 days. I am 63 and 10 years postmenopausal. My new OB did transvaginal ultrasound after I insisted (I have had every symptom of ovarian cancer past 6 mo), I had an endrometrial lining at 12 mm and a cervical polyp biopsied came back benign which was awesome. They did find an multilocular complex cyst 3-4 cm on rt ovary surrounded by 6 1 cm cysts. Although I continued to have abdominal and back pain daily they advised waiting 2 mo and rechecking cyst again. They refused to refer me for a second opinion. MyCA125 was 14 but I know it does not elevate past 35 in 50% of early ovarian survivors and never in 20% of late stage survivors. I tried to get a local gyn oncologist to continue assessment and treatment but he refused I think because the ob/gyn refused referral. I did also yesterday get a clear CT scan which I got because of very severe pain on left abdomen after sex. What I want is to get my ovaries taken out and to have them biopsied. The reason I am still so worried is that I have all the symptoms particularly the bloating past 2 mo waist tighter but inexplicably losing 10 lb in one week with no diet/exercise changes, severely increasing nausea over past month with vomiting, and fullness after eating past 2 weeks so that I am unable to eat 3 normal sized meals daily. Many days now I have eaten only 1 meal and at 236 lbs. this is not a problem I've ever had before.
This am I ate 1/2 of 1/2 of English muffin with 4 bites of grits after only 1 meal yesterday. I had to fight nausea to keep that bit down. I also have urinary pressure and frequency and an episode of incontinence 2 days ago where I woke up wetting bed.
I do not want to wait in case I have early stage ovarian cancer that is rapidly progressing and may be late stage in 2 mo. I am new and could use advice/support.
Would u wait with my history? Of course I'd be thrilled if I do not have cancer. Anyone have trouble getting diagnosed quickly?
