I finally saw a Dr that seemed willing to help me and that actually listened to my concerns. I go for a CT scan on Wednesday and then back to see him Friday. He started me on 2 different antibiotics in case any of this is just infection that has gone undetected for almost 2 months now. He was really suprised that my reg GYN never ordered any type of test to check out what was causing all my symptoms. I am anxious to find out what is causing all this and finally get to feeling like a normal person againView Thread
Hi! I am hoping that I can get some answers before I go to the Dr Thursday so that I'm a bit more prepared.
I had an IUD placed May 8th, but by the end of Nov. I was having really bad periods, to the point I bled for 6 weeks (either spotting to flooding). My GYN took out my IUD on Dec 1st, but did not check for any infection or anything. He just mentioned that I seemed to be very tender and put me the Nuvaring. Well that ran my BP to 190/110 so I went off that and went back with even more symptoms. My GYN basically brushed me off of all concerns I had, yet said that I was a bit more tender than before. Well the symptoms I was TRYING to tell him was the following: I stay tired ALL the time, my stomach looks swollen, I'm nauseous most of the time, I have to run to the BR all night & day, and my periods are still "not right". Not to mention I have a history of ovarian cysts. Should I be concerned about ovarian cancer if it does not run in my family?View Thread
thanks for the information. Now I don't feel like I'm crazy for being so worried about all this. I am still having issues with this other office that brushed me off. I go tomorrow afternoon and I have to admit I am very nervous about it. I have told my husband that I was not going alone. For one I don't know what to expect & plus if I do get "bad" news then I would have over an hour drive home.View Thread
