Re: What do i ask for?
Hi there worrybucket. (love the name!)
I am going to the gyno. Monday 4/28, as I am having "issues" with an ovary.
I plan on asking him to do a CA125 test (blood test.) When you go, most certainly you'll have a pap test or at least an internal exam.
I specified on the phone when I made the appt. that I want an ultrasound of my ovaries. I had a hysterectomy in 2005 but the ovaries were left behind. I'm wishing they were gone now because the pain? It's crazy.
Be sure to tell your doc everything you're experiencing...any bloating, pelvic pain, weight gain or loss, lower back pain, fatigue, problems peeing and such...
Ovarian cancer's symptoms can be hard to identify sometimes, so it's best to cover all your bases and TELL ALL!
I have adult-onset epilepsy. I am here to answer any questions, offer hugs or whatever you need to the best of my disability.
