Im 27. For the last month I've had multiple symptoms including bloating, cramping, lower back pain, dull achey lower back, my right side has a dull pain as well, constant urge to go, weird bowel changes, shortness of breath. I'm not sure if I have an apetite or not but I've never had much of one. For the last year or so Ive been dealing with what my doctor told me was ovarian cyst pain and that it would go away. Most was pain and dull aches before and after periods, heavy flow as well. I had a lot of torsion which I believed to be the cyst growing, of course my doctor said sometimes they grow but it would go away on its on. It grew reletively fast, but I guess a year is enough time to let it. Im at a stand still now, I know I need to seek medical attention, I know I need to get myself checked out. I have no money to my name, not a cent in my bank, what little I get from my paycheck goes towards rent and bills, I hardly make enough to buy food. How can I afford doctors visits with no health insurance, no money, no nothing? Am I to die because I cant afford the help? Im in tears with the very thought. A friend quoted how much it cost for a biopsy and I almost started crying right then. My family wouldn't cover the costs, they wouldnt pay or help pay for the surgery. I don't know what to do. I cant afford to save myself.
