Last week I had definite spotting after a 4 month break from any spotting. When I called the onc surgeon to report it, i was told it was probably because I started exercising. Why didnt they tell me that many months the road i could bleed for a reason unrelated to a recurrence of cancer? The staff seemed so indifferent.
If the surgeon doesn't see anything at tomorrow's 6 month follow up, should I ask for some other test?
I'll also get the results of a CT scan with contrast tomorrow. This was ordered to humor me. Maybe it won't show anything either, but there must be a reason for the spotting. I continue to have pain on my right side and, at times, the left side. The pain on the right side goes down my upper leg. A prior CT done in the ER shortly after surgery showed an unexplained place on my right side. The ER doctor told me to follow up with the onc surgeon who was out of the country for the month. The ER doctor thought it might be a residual ovary. I saw the nurse practitioner who thought it was probable some surgical drainage that would resolve in time.
Can you think of any questions I should ask? Thanks a bunch,
