5 years ago I had a complete hyterectomy due to being BRCA 1 and an elevated CA125, I have been fine for years. About 4 months ago I started having vaginal (sorry) pain, not an infection but just pain in that area. That comes and goes now. The last month my stomach has swollen and I have sharp pinching pains in the upper and left sides and the last 2 weeks severe constipation which is abnormal for me since I was always very regular. I had a colonoscopy and endoscopy done along with a chest exray and abdominal ultra sound from my Gastric doctor, they have all come back fine yet the swelling and pain is still there. I have heard of peritoneal cancer and how it's possible to get it even after a hysterectomy. Has anyone had these same symptoms and should I be concerned? I appreciate any advice, Thank you.
