I am a 36yr old mummy to 4 wonderful children, 5 if you count the husband. I do apologise but this is a long one.
I was admitted to hospital last week for severe abdominal pain. Originally they thought it was appendicitis as it was on my right side.
So they did an ultrasound and ruled out appendicitis but found a 4cm solid mass on my right ovary. They said it doesn't look like a cyst and they wanted me to have an mri within the 2ww. They admitted me to a ward because my pain was so severe after 3 days they sent the pain clinic nurse to me and she sent me home with slow release tramadol and oramorphe (liquid morphine) to take every 4hrs when needed. They said my case would be discussed at the next MDT on Tuesday just gone.
I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in July 2019 and I was supposed to have had an appointment with my surgeon last week but obviously missed it, I rang my breast cancer nurse on Wednesday to sort out a new appointment, while I was on the phone I explained what happened last week and asked if she could have a look at the outcome from the meeting as I wasn't given any details about who I could contact. She said she couldn't see it as it wasn't her area but she could see when my mri is booked for. It's not booked till the 9th October so I'm expected to take tramadol and oramorphe until at least the second week in October. She also gave me a number to ring to find out the outcome.
The number was for the medical secretary to the gyne who was at the meeting. She said they discussed my case and it was said they want mri. I said I already knew that last week. I told her it was booked for the 9th October which is a long time to wait when I'm in so much pain, on such strong painkillers and especially if it is cancer as it could spread and she was like oh it won't spread if it's cancer. How can she say that? No one can say that?!
I was supposed to celebrating this month that I was NED from breast cancer but no I'm back to the waiting game again.
Has anybody else had Breast Cancer and then found a mass on ovaries and it been ok?
