Advice please, has anyone else had this happen to them?

edited September 2020 in Welcome & Orientation

Hi everyone,

My partner has pretty much all the symptoms of ovarian cancer, with the marker going up. We have been to two cancer specialists both saying “they don’t think it’s anything to worry about”

but her symptoms are getting worse and I’m really worried about her. Has anyone else had this happen? And what did you do to get the drs to do something straight away instead of taking their time. I’m worried by the time they realise they were wrong that it will have progressed too far for them to act on it. The only one that knows it’s something serious and is trying to help as much as he can is her gp

These are her symptoms so far:

2 cysts one on each ovary that are not going away and growing

constant severe pelvic and abdominal pain (her gp has her on strong slow release pain killers for pain management)

bloating, indigestion and changed bowl movement

constant nausea

hot flushes/night sweats

constant thick discharge

getting full easily and losing appetite

Any advice would be much appreciated as we are stuck for what to do from here!


  • hello gabbym

    i would advise you to seen an oncologist/gynocolist. Get some ct scan done

    Even request a pet scan.

    I had pet scan today this will determine where the cancer and cysts are.

    I have not been diagnosed as to what cancer I have on my ovaries. Also I have a mass In my abdomen.

    Go to specialists they know GPS are specialists

    I wish you well on your journey xxx


  • Meant to say GPS are not specialists xxx
