bloated?

I know a symptom of ovarian cancer is to have your stomach feeling bloated, what does that really mean? and how do you distinguish between "bloated" and just simply full? When I relax my stomach muscles my stomach extends out by quite a lot sometimes, is that bloating? or is that normal?

thanks in advance !

Re: bloated?

Hi Winnie,

I think that you would really know that you were bloated (in you mid and lower stomach area), if you really were. My stomach is fat anyway, and has been for at least 10 years. I am just too fat and cannot do stomach exercises because of stomach (inside) illnesses. But, I am bloated. You just feel like you are so big and that you should need to urinate and that you are full and that you either have a growth or a baby inside!!! :> At least that is what I feel like. My stomach area is sort of tight and seems like it could be thumped like a watermelon!!! :> Really!

My stomach muscle are relaxed, I do not hold them in ever - unless I am trying to button or zip something too tight. And then I do not buy that! But, my stomach feels like I am holding it in, like a muscle is holding it in for me! I hope that makes some sort of sense? It is very hard to explain!!!

If you have any other problems, urinary or female wise, you should go and get checked out by your gynocologist! Call up ovarian cancer on the net and see if you have any of the other symptoms of ovarian cancer, beside bloating.

Take care.

Wannabe

Re: bloated?

Hi, I don't want to be flippant. But I noticed that my navel changed - from a normal outie to a hard to see innie. I thought it was just another aging change - then my gyno told me I had mild distension. US and other tests show I likely have ovarian cancer. Just thought that would be an easy way to tell!
