I'm 20 years old and have been experiencing constant nausea for about 14 months...I went to a gastroenterologist who did an upper endoscopy and said everything looked fine. My doctor had me try different acid reflux medicines, and they help some, but still don't get rid of the nausea.
Then finally, they discovered that I had a large ovarian cyst (14 x 10cm), which I had surgery for two weeks ago; he also had to remove a small part of my ovary. Obviously I thought after the cyst was gone, the nausea would go away, but it hasn't! I feel a little better but the problem is definitely still there.
I am wondering if I could have some type of hormone imbalance? It seems like that could be linked to having the cyst (but I don't really know much about that!) And thinking about it now, I've always had heavy periods, but I just didn't think it was a big deal as long as I had them regularly. I've also been feeling more fatigued since this problem started. I'm going to my surgery follow-up appt in a week and I'll definitely ask him then, but I was just wondering if anyone knew anything about this! Are hormones tested through a blood test? Will the gynecologist run those tests? I know that being put on birth control pills would be likely, but I'd just like to think there would be tests done so I'd know what the problem was for sure before starting to take them...so if anyone has experience with this I'd appreciate the input! Thanks
