Well, it's 5:30 in the morning and I haven't been to sleep yet. At 4:00 in the morning the night before I was having so much stomach pain that I husband took me to the ER. I have been to two doctor visits in the last six weeks complaining of nausea, bloating and stomach pain, but last night it seemed worse. After cat scans, ultrasound, and various lab tests and many others, the ER doctor informed me I have a atypical enlarged ovary (5 centimeters) and set up a gynecologist for me to go to as mine has retired. Last month my dear neighbor passed away from ovarian cancer after two years of contant chemo, so I have become well aware of what this was all about. I am just terrified. I'm not sure what atypical means. She said the ultrasound showed no cysts, which made me even more scared. Does anyone know if I am overreacting or if this could be something I don't need to worry about as much?
