May Have OC
I am glad I have found this forum. I had uterine fibroids so had a hysterectomy but both ovaries were left. That was in 2020. I have issues with severe constipation as I don’t have all of my bowel. I ended up in hospital a few months ago for that issue. I was advised I would have a colonoscopy done. I had the colonoscopy as an out patient 2 weeks ago and I also ended up having that and a colonography. I got the results from my GP today. My colon is fine but my left ovary is bulky and enlarged. I have to have a pelvic ultrasound done this Wednesday. I have goggled ovarian cAncer as I am worried I may have it. My right ovary is fine.
I am 40 years old. I don’t know if ovarian cancer runs in the family as I have never met my mother, she left after I was born. I asked my dad but he didn’t know. My family live in the UK so I have emailed my auntie to ask her.
i read through the symptoms and I have had pain on the left side and have been having lower back pain for a while now. I get fatigued as I have anaemia. I have iron infusions 6 monthly. I am due for one now.
I hope this is the right place to voice my worries.
thank you for reading this.
