First let me start with the birth of my second child in Nov. 1999. I had a C-section. As part of my OB's surgical routine for C-sections she looks for any abnormalities with uterus, ovaries and ect. She reported that everything looked normal.
In March I started having serve gas pains and then constipation. I went through a upper and lower GI. These tests were fine. I had a CT Scan which showed multiple masses through out abdomen.
My DR ran cancer blood tests CEA and CA-125. These we only slightly elivated.
I had been tired and had a slight decrease in appetite. (But who isnt tired with a newborn and a 5 year old). If you are concerned demand a Ct scan of the abdomen. If your Dr won't do it, find another Dr.
