I'm new to this site...I feel I'm at the very end of my rope, discovered these forums, and figured maybe someone might have some insight as to what I'm going through. In June 2010, I went to an Urgent care site locally, I thought i had a UTI..I had some pelvic pain, and was given an antibiotic..The next month the pain was still there. I had a CT scan done, and it was found that I had a cyst on my left kidnet measuring about 3cm. I was told it was common, nothing to be concerned with. They also found Ovarian cysts. Christmas Eve, I returned to the ER because I had a D&C done on the 22nd, I had a lot of abdomial pain. Another CT was done, I was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis, and again a cyst on my kidney, same size as last CT. In March, this year I began having a lot of lower back pain, I have a herniated disc L4 from an MVA in 1992. An X ray was done and it was suggested I go for Phys. Therapy..That wasn't helping so a CT was ordered. Now they say the cyst is a solid mass, same size as the last two. I am scared out of my wits. Have an apt. with a Urologist Easter Mon. My bloodwork is all within normal limits. Urinalysis, normal, not traces of blood.Bence Jones, normal What's puzzling me most, is the mass is on the left kidney, and I'm having pain in right flank and pelvic area....I'm so confused, afraid and don't know what to think...If anyone has experienced anything like this I would certainly appreciate hearing your story...
