Ok...I got a call from my GI yesterday and was told that I have a cyst on my right ovary and there is fluid in my vagina and cervix. This is likely to explain why I have been in so much pain the last 2 or so years??!! What? I got the the female doctor every year and he hasn't mentioned a cyst. He even checked my hormone levels last year due to the Crohns to see if I was going into ealy menopause.
He told me that my small and large intestine didn't look any worse, so that is a good thing. In fact he said the medication seems to be doing something.
He said he was going to forward my CT results to my female doctor and I should call him. I did so and they told me that he wasn't going to be in until the afternoon, however that the results would get onto his desk. I still haven't heard from him, however I do know that he could have had baby deliveries.
My family tells me that they don't do anything for a cyst because they normally break on their own. Does that mean I have to live with it? If so perhaps I will take up my GI's request for pain medication.
I am so confused at the moment!!??
