A few months ago I started feeling like I was coming down with the flu and was having stabbing pains that would come and go. I never got the flu, never got a fever and the pains got bad enough that I ended up in the ER. I was expecting to have something like a kidney infection... drs ran blood work that came back all messed up but they said no infection and did a CT scan that showed tons of cysts on both ovaries and a lesion on my uterus. They said I need more tests to figure out what the lesion is and threw around the possibility of if being cancer. I have no insurance so dealing with county hospitals so this was end of Oct and they still havent scheduled any of the tests. I am so exhausted I can barely do anything but the dr said this isnt a symptom that I must have something else wrong with me too.
so these are my questions:
before anyone was diagnosed did were they extremely tired (like how you feel with the flu)?
did anyone have a lesion show up and it was later confirmed to be cancer?
did anyone else have tons of ovarian cysts as well as uterine problems?
I have read that bleeding is a symptom... could much lighter periods also be a symptom?
did anyone have any irregularities in their blood work before they were diagnosed?
any help or info would be much appreciated as I am on my own and just sitting here feeling horrible with no where to go for help (ER will just send me home again and tell me to wait for my appointments that this isnt an emergency)...
