for the past 3 months I've been experiencing severe pelvic pain, visible bleeding in the urine (clotted) pain before, during and after urination. painful intercourse, nausea, vomiting, weight loss, fatigue, frequent urination...UTI and other infections were ruled out at the ER..I havent been able to see the oncologist I was referred to due to medical insurance problems. OTC pain stuff are not working. I'm in agony and I'm starting to worry. I have some tolerable days but the rest of the time it's really bad. I don't know if I should be worried...I'm very anxious.View Thread
Thank you for your reply...I'm going to try this. I used to do this for my hypertension until my machine broke and I couldn't take my bp at home anymore but never thought about doing it for pain. My doc called me with August's ER visit's results. She stated I have a large mass on the left side that needs surgical removal and also mentioned something regarding my kidneys but I wasn't able to hear all the information because she had to go see her patients. She also said that if I'm still in a lot of pain and bleeding to go to the ER. I've had a lot of pelvic pain problems in the past due to ovarian cysts and endometriosis. I've had 7 laparascopies & a partial hysterectomy due to it but I've never had the pain urination,bleeding,nausea,vomiting,weight loss problems I'm having now. So I freaked out but everything will be OK...for now I try not to aggravate the pain, I try to keep myself hydrated and I'm taking OTC pain pills until I can see her.View Thread
Thanks for your reply well I called the insurance and it's going to take another 4 weeks for me to get it! I also called my doc and gave her a summary of the last 3 months, She said it doesn't sound good and that she is going to review all the ER test results since nobody ever did!View Thread
