Discussions that mention bentyl

Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian board


I am really interested in what people have to say on this...

quick Hx: 35 yr old, 2 kids, first ever ab pap Oct 06, HPV. Dx Nov. 06 CIN III, Adenocarcinoma in situ. cone, positive margins, abdominal hysterectomy.saved ovaries. ASCUS pap after, then finally a normal one. next test is Sept.

since oct 07 I"ve been having major IBS type symptoms. I did acupuncture and it really helped, but it got to be too costly. Relief lasted 7 months. Went to GI who didn't even do a sample or blood work, said if acupuncture was helping to stick (ha ha) with it.

symptoms came back mid-June but with this I also have bloating, gas, tired, hair loss, irritable, and extremely nauseous all day, no change in what I've eaten etc. Thought it could be stress, finally went to primary doctor who did all kinds of blood tests for thyroid, ulcers, pancreas etc that came back normal. I asked about the ca 125 and he said it wasn't warranted since it wasn't in my ovaries and that it could negatively flag my insurance. Put me on Bentyl which has helped a little, stops the bowel issues but not the nausea.
My bf mom died of peritoneal cancer and I know it goes undetected for a long time.
I guess once you've had cancer cells in your body it makes you question every little change....and worry unnecessarily but I can't stand being this queezy all the time....

Are you on any type of HRT? Sometimes an imbalance in your hormones can cause nausea. You might want to check this out with your doctor.
