I've been having some discomfort in my tummy, kind of bloating after meals. I also feel uncomfortable underneath my lungs (I have a little bit of fluid around my lungs) So my GP (Primary Care Doctor) sent me along for a chest x-ray and an ultra sound of my abdomen.
1. My chest x-ray showed a small amount of fluid in the pleural space around my lungs which I expected. BUT it appears that my heart is slightly en-larged????? So I am to have some investigation for that.
2. The ultra-sound managed to show up (my supposedly healthy ovaries) an abnormality with my left ovary. The stenographer was very open and honest with me and said she didn't know what it was. She couldn't confirm cancer but she couldn't rule it out. I have an appointment on Monday with my GP to get the official results.
It just seems very strange to me that my once healthy ovaries (so I was told) has now an abnormality.
Is it possible I have mets from PPC to the ovaries? Has anyone ever heard of that? Otherwise, and this if it is true will make me angry, otherwise my primary all along was ovarian in origin with mets to my peritoneum???
Is an ultra sound more or less reliable or accurate than a CT scan???
I will get to find out more next week.
I must say when I came out of the hospital I looked up to heaven and said "Why, haven't you already given me enough?" "Isn't one cancer enough to deal with?"
