Oncologist orders an MRI due to new intense pelvic pain which shows uterine fibroid and right ovarian cysts which "were previously noted an had not changed." Better yet, the two previous scans report that I've had a hysterectomy and no ovaries are seen??? I never had a hysterectomy...who's reading these??? Two weeks later pain becomes so intense I have to call for an appt. with my GP.
Feels like my uterus is stuck in a contraction ... trying to abort this fibroid? Got a script for a muscle relaxer to see if it would relax that big muscle called a uterus. It actually worked and after several days the pain is back to tolerable. Visit with my GYN on Friday (who works at another facility and I thought he was getting copies of these reports, but he wasn't)...he states, and I know this is true, that I can't be growing fibroids. States, "If somethings in there, we have problems." Several hours later I have a trans-vaginal ultrasound. Yep, there's something growing in there...definitely not a fibroid and where the cyst was, now there is just a pocket of fluid. Apparently the intense pain was due to the cyst bursting.
Called Quality Control of the radiology dept. where the scans were taken/read. Woman on the other end of the line is pulling up my scans as we talk and taking notes of what I'm saying. She asks "Are you sure you didn't have a hysterectomy?" I think I'd be the first to know!! My big concern, was this growth in my uterus a year ago and never documented (cause they were saying I didn't have a uterus, but the recent MRI states they were there previously) and is it a new cancer or mets of cervical cancer? Supposed to hear from the head of radiology by end of work day Monday. I'm really looking forward to hearing him explain this!
Once again...sitting on the edge waiting to see which way the ball is going to bounce! No stress here!!!
