Could this be ovarian cancer?

Hi, So in the beginning of February I began experiencing bloating (I looked pregnant) indigestion, and a lot of burping. My bowel movements were sparse and pencil thin. Gas x did not help. After a couple weeks of not getting better I went to urgent care and right away he did an x ray and found my ascending colon was all backed up due to a possible impacted feces. He told me take miralax as if preparing for a colonoscopy. I did and I got a lot out and was real crampy but then my right side starting hurting incredibility bad (I've had two kids drug free and this whole experience has been worse) I went to the ER they took blood and urine samples, did am ultra sound and an xray. Everything was good except the xray showed one spot in my colon with a minor blockage. He told me to do miralax one more time. The whole week I felt terrible so I went to my DR. who said theres nothing she can do, referred me to a GI specialist and told me to go the ER if I vomit feces. Freaked out I went back to urgent care and he did more bloodwork and ordered a contrast catscan. The catscan said everything was good except my uterus is somewhat prominent and may need an intra vaginal ultrasound. But when he called me he said my results were good and I possibly had a virus. I called on monday to get an appt for the pelvic exam and couldn't get in until April 24th! Tuesday I went to the ER with pain in my right side and light headiness and told them about my history so far, they did the pelvic ultrasound and told me I had an ovarian cyst that ruptured on my right side but to still see a GI specialist, I may have something else going on with my large intestine. I saw the GI and he seemed unconcerned with the ovarian cyst but was more concerned that I lost weight and scheduled a colonoscopy, I had that done and everything was fine...I still have a bloated stomach even though I've lost 18lbs and I pee often but the pain in my right side has lessened. I saw another obgyn last week (and hour and half away) she just did a regular pelvic exam and said everything felt fine, tested my urine and just said my ketones were off probably due to my lack of eating and scheduled a inter pelvic sonogram for 6 weeks. I'm at a lose of what to do. I hope this wasn't too rambled together. Thanks for any advice!

Re: Could this be ovarian cancer?

It seems ovarian cyst symptoms can run the gamut. Some women have a lot of symptoms regardless of the size and some have no symptoms even with large cysts. And even after a cyst ruptures, the symptoms can hang on for awhile.

It can be hard to discern between gyn issues and gastrointestinal issues. Even though the colonoscopy results were normal, it could still be something other than a gyn issue. The good thing is that the odds are very much in your favor that it isn't ovarian cancer.

I hope you get answers and feel better soon!

Thank you for your reply! I am going to try to be patient....just the not knowing is giving me so much anxiety, I keep thinking if any of the doctors knew what was wrong we could start a treatment plan before it gets worse. I will just hope it's still from the ruptured cyst.
