Abdominal and internal ultrasound with history of Cancer

21 Jul 2021 17:12

Hello,

I thought I'd message on here to get some insight into people's experiences with getting results from ultrasounds.

When I was 18, I realised something wasn't right within that region. After being turned away by multiple GP's that felt around and insisted everything was fine, I had a really bad experience one night where I was almost fainting and out of breath from the pain I was experiencing in that area. It was so bad that I nearly called an ambulance. So I went back and basically forced them to take me seriously and eventually after the process of ultrasounds and CT scans, operations etc it turned out that I did have a really rare form of ovarian cancer.

 

Anyway, fast forward 5 years, living in a big city now whereas I previously lived in a small town. I started to pick up on symptoms similar to before and convinced them to give me another ultrasound. I had it last Wednesday so it's been a week. I called my GP and they said they have not yet received my ultrasound results.

I'm not sure to take this as a sign that the radiologists not being concerned and therefore not treating it as a matter of urgency. Or could it be that they're so busy my results haven't been looked at/analysed yet? I'm not sure how qualified the sonographer is to interpret the results and wondered what are other people experiences of delayed ultrasound results?

Thank you!!

Oh no I'm so sorry you're going through this :(. It's the worst thing when they won't listen to you, you know your body better than anyone. It's even worse when you turn out to be right way later on. I really hope everything goes well with you in the future!

 

You've got this!! X
