I am a breast cancer survivor. Yay! (about the survivor part). I finished my treatment in early May, which consisted of surgery, chemo and radiation.
So, for the past two months, maybe a little longer, I have been experiencing some symptoms that are scary close to symptoms of Ovarian Cancer. Had an ultrasound last week...nothing. They were looking for gallstones or maybe liver issues. I have a CT tomorrow, but don't have an appointment w/ my onco til Oct 5th.
My symptoms are ALOT of upper abdominal bloating. Creates alot of pressure. I can't eat much before I feel too full. I stay full and distended all day. It's slightly better in the mornings before I eat anything, but that doesn't last long. I have lost five pounds which puts me back to my precancer weight, but my abdomen is very large like I'm pregnant. I can't wear my clothes comfortably. Seems one day I was my regular pudge in the gut then I looked and felt much bigger. I also have changes in bowel habits, and am more tired. That may be due to just life and age.lol I'm 49 and have just begun homeschooling our 12 and 9 yr old kids. Yikes!! :)
Anyway, can someone please share if their prediagnosis symptoms were similar? Thanks so much.
