Estria, thanks for the reply.
The meds are noted for decrease in appetite; so, to me that was explainable. And, the weight loss started within a few weeks of taking it. 55lbs over 10 months doesn't seem bad - but, it seems to be the recurring stomach pains that stay for about 2 days around once a week or so. The pains make me want to press on my stomach, so there is no tenderness anywhere...???
No family history of colon cancer except my maternal grandfather had it; but no chemo, etc.
The only different thing about the ovarian cyst; is that I did have a uterine ablation 2 years ago; so rarely even have symptoms of PMS or when I should have a period. Not sure if this is even relevent; but my GYN was the one who did it - and I've also read - like you said that 2cm cysts are pretty common and don't need removal. Mine is a dermoid cyst. The only reason my GYN dr said the next step was a colonoscopy was because she said the fecal occult test she did right then was positive...well, it should have been the way she did it. I've had her do one other at my yearly GYN visit (in Jan of this year - literally a few days after my stomach pains started) and it was negative.
I've calmed down and think that you are right - I'm going to contact my pdoc tomorrow about the Vyvanse and Lamictal abdominal pain side affects that she might have seen or read about in journals. She knows of the weight loss as I saw her about 6 weeks ago and said as long as I wasn't NOT eating; not to worry at this point...that I'm still not underweight, in fact still about 20lbs overweight for my height.
After I've talked to her, I'm going to schedule a visit with my Gastro dr and talk rather than act impulsively. In defense of my GYN, I think she saw my fear when she told me it couldn't be the cyst causing the pain and suggested the colonoscopy as I had been hurting enough to go to the ER earlier in the week. I was so convinced it was the ovarian cyst, that I was just ready to have it out and be done with all of this. BTW, I've only been to the ER 3 times (this was the 3rd) in my life...1st I had viral meningitis, 2nd chest pains due to too quick of withdrawel from a prescribed med and this time. To me, you have to be bleeding to go to the ER, and it was like this past day of abdominal pain was the straw that broke the camel's back.
Anyway - thank you again. I'll reply once I hear something this week.
