I'm 43 and in July i started having little sharp pains down by right ovary. I have had bad/painful periods for some time, figured it was due to pre menopausal symptoms. In August I went to the ER for pain in my right side, back and upper abdomen, I thought it was my gall bladder because it hurt so bad when I ate and my abdomen was so bloated more than I liked. Test were all negative. Finally in September I made an appointment with my gynecologist because of the pain in my pelvis and heavy periods. She suggested that I get an endometrial ablation to stop having periods and scheduled an ultrasound to see why I was having pain. After the ultrasound my dr. Told me about the ablation procedure and vaguely said I had a cyst on my right ovary with thickened walls and that she would do another ultrasound before my ablation procedure. Like it was no big deal. The outpatient surgery is scheduled for november 17th and she added a d&c and hysteroscopy too with no explanation. My pain is continuing to get worse and my abdomen just seems yo be getting bigger everyday. Also I have continued to have heartburn, indigestion and pain when I eat, so much so that I went to my GP and told I was positive for the H-pylori bacteria which means I have ulsers. She still scheduled an upper gi to go along with all the meds to cure the ulsers. My concern is all the bloating and tightness in my abdomen. I feel like I don't want to wait until the 17th to find anything else about my cyst on my ovary. Should I go back to my gyno sooner? I'm so worried that I have ovarian cancer, my symptoms are just like that of OC. Or is 3 more weeks fine to wait. My gyno seemed not concerned at all .
