A few weeks past I mentioned that my sister was showing symptoms of OVC or something. She has a mass in her left adrexena(sp)area...lower left abdomen. A pelvic sonogram revealed nothing. The mass was found via CT.
She is anemic and has bathroom issues like no tomorrow. She can eat normally. She did have a thyroid issue but that has been medicated so it is balanced. She finally got her CA 125 tested this week.
The number was 29. The lab told her 21 was normal? I thought 35 was the average norm? Anyways...the not having health insurance bit was driving us nuts. She's finally go it. It will be effective June 1st.
What do we do next colonoscopy? Should I get her straight to an oncologist? I am not sure where to proceed. Her doctor is utterly clueless about this beyond urging urgent action. If the mass is not where a colonoscopy can find it...what then?
I am at a loss.
