?? on Ovarian Cancer - Has anyone been diagnosed?
I'm new here and I would just like to say that everyone seems wonderful and very caring of others.
I was wondering if someone could help with some symptoms I've been having? I have endometriosis and starting feeling bad about 7 months ago. I didn't have insurance and figured my endo was just acting up and thought I could just deal w/ it. Well, the problems continued to get progressively worse. I decided to suck it up and get insurance. Went to the Dr. thinking she would just tell me that it was my endo, have another (3rd) laproscopy and be done w/ it. Well, the Dr. doesn't seem to think that it's endo and ordered some blood work and an ultrasound - which is scheduled for next week.
I realize now that alot of my symptoms are the same as Ovarian Cancer. I'm so bloated that I look like I'm 6 months pregnant, lower back ache, pelvic cramping (feels like my ovaries are burning) and cramping on my left side (feels like the same cramp you get when you're running), daily fatigue, nausea and the latest - my breasts have become tender & a burning sensation.
My question is...has anyone that has been diagnosed w/ Ovarian Cancer have any of these symptoms? I do not have any of the risk factors involved - can someone get this cancer w/out any of the risk factors? Any help would be extremely appreciated. Sometimes I feel like I'm just crazy, like no one understands and my family hasn't been much help. My sister told me today that I'm just depressed and need to go on some pill. Nice, huh?
Again, I would greatly appreciate any feedback and thanks for listening!
