Hi everyone. Ive been looking on the net trying to find a place to chat with others that had ovarian tumors. I couldnt find anything that was not cancer related. I did come across this place and read some stories and posts here. Everyone seems so nice and supportive.
My name is Melissa, and im 30 years old. About 6 years ago I was having pains in my stomach and went to the ER and found out that I had Germ cell tumors that were 8cm and 6cm, after the runaround from several doctors I ended up having surgery to remove them.
2 years later (at the exact same time of the year as the first) I started having those pains again. Went to ER (different one than the first). This time they said they were Adnexal mass, and another doctor called them Dermoid cyst. Once again I had to have surgery to get 2 removed. The one on my left ovary had completely taken over my ovary so I also had my ovary removed.
Its been 4 years since I have had surgery. For several months now I have had some pains there, but not nearly as extreme as the past. Last Sat night the extreme pain came back. I went to the ER about it on sunday, but all they did was bloodwork, and urine. Said that I had no infections and my bloodwork came back ok. Gave me pain killers, and told me to call OB in the morning. I have an appointment on tuesday to get checked out. The symptoms are a lot of the same lower abdomen pain, back pain, only now, im having a few new symptoms. I cant eat more than a few bites before I feel full. Theres also a sharp pain almost at my ribs on my right side. I dont know what to think and its been driving me nuts. I have been couch bound for the past week and going crazy. The wait is the worst. Sorry for ranting on, but for those of you who made it this far, Thank you for reading :)
