Thought I would introduce myself..I am a 35 year old mum of 2 and I have had a lot of health issues over the years,which has resulted in numerous operations.
The worst of which was a Total Abdominal Hysterectomy on 4th July last year,which I suffered a lot of complications from,everything was going ok until about 6 weeks ago when I started getting quite a lot of abdominal pain which started to get worse..after my best friend nagging me to go to the doctor,my GP straight away suspected adhesions to be the problem after she examined me.So she referred me for an Ultrasound scan.
I had my Ultrasound scan last Wednesday and was completely blown away by what the radiographer showed me..it wasn't adhesions causing the problems at all..they found around 7 cysts and one of them was large being about the size of a golf ball.
Well I was in total shock and she said she was going to fastrack my results back to the GP and that I had to ring this morning to make an appointment to discuss what happens next..well after waiting for 5 days with allsorts running through my mind,luckily I have a very supportive partner and family to keep me calm,I wasn't happy when I rang the doctors to be told that my doctor couldn't see me for over a week and the receptionist wouldn't give me an emergency appointment.I was told that i would have to wait another 24 hrs and if the doctor got chance she would ring me tomorrow morning.
Well after getting very upset and wound up,and I have been in bed all day today as the pain is so severe..I called back and asked to be put through to the practice manager,at which point they took me seriously and went to have a word with my doctor who agreed that it's not the sort of conversation to have over the telephone,so she has cancelled some appointments for tomorrow to fit me in face to face.
I am worried sick,and my family are too,but I am trying to stay calm as best I can.I really hope it isn't cancer,but I didn't know where else to turn to so I hope you guys don't mind me getting things off my chest one here.
I would be really grateful of any advice if anyone has been through a similar thing.
