I haven't posted for a while - sorry!
I had a full hysterectomy in October 2010 for Uterine cancer. Never really given a stage - but didn't have to have chemo or radiation - so I am guessing 1X.
In the past 6 - 8 months I have felt a mass in my pelvic/abdomen area. I have seen several doctors - no one really paid attention when I complained of it. When I sneeze or cough it hurts like crazy - unless I brace myself for the sneeze.
The mass is now very large and interferes with my sitting - it is super uncomfortable and heavy.
I went to my family Dr today and he is sending me for an abdominal wall ultrasound next week. He said he doesn't think there is anything to worry about -- but you know how the cancer head takes over.
Has anyone ever had any issues sounding like mine?
I have been dealing with occasional spotting - which they say is NOT cancer recurrence. I have had ultrasonds and a colposcopy which shows no cancer recurrence - but no one mentions the "mass".
When I lie down you can see how deformed my pelvic region is - one side is very swollen and hard.
