Hi to All, I hope someone here on the board can offer me some of their thoughts or input and possibly be of support to me. I am a little or I should say a lot concerned. The reasons why--- I have been experiencing unwanted weightloss: I weighed 100 lbs two years ago and now I weigh 82 lbs. I lost the weight over the last year to year and one half. I have swelling in my pelvis 'my pelvis is hard/firm to the touch' and I have been experiencing persistent constipation for many months, I have been experiencing more and more fatigue; lower back pain and for some odd reason I have been experiencing pain in both of my legs from time to time. I often feel over full after eating a small meal and I am often experiencing urinary urgency.
I am 47 years old. I had ovarian cysts when I was in my 30's however, they were functional cysts. I still have my periods. I have severe emphysema, however, my lung doctor has made mention to me during our consult recently that the symptoms I am experiencing, for example, my unwanted/unintentional weightloss, should be checked out by my primary doctor. I was a little disappointed when my primary doctor ignored my lung doctors input and my concern as well regarding my unintentional weight loss and persistent constipation, etc. so, I followed up with a second opinion. Now I have a new primary doctor. My new primary doctor sent me for a CT scan with barium and iodeine. I have not received any results for my CT scan as yet. I had the CT scan last monday or almost a week ago. I assume all must be well with the CT scan or I would have heard word by now.
Anyone here have any suggestions or input? I am still worried and concerned. Possibly I am over reacting.
