Some of you know, my gastro sent me to the gynecologist for pressure in my lady parts and in my rectum. I was treated for a UTI a few weeks ago and had a clean urine culture, BUT I am still feeling horrible - so my doc sent me to the gynecologist for a full exam.
Symptoms - low grade fever comes and goes, fatigue, either d or tiny poops. Bowel incontinence, feeling of having a full rectum and bladder even after I go to the bathroom, nausea, did I mention tired?
The gynecologist did a rectovaginal exam (I HATE those) and felt something in my rectovaginal septum (wall in between my vag and rectum). He described it as feeling like a pencil, but did not know what it was. When he pressed on it, it hurt like hell and I thought I would poop and pee all at one (sorry for the lovely visual). It was clear that whatever he found is causing a narrowing of sorts in my rectum. And it feels very inflamed.
I asked if it was an abscess and he did not think so. I also asked about internal hemorrhoids - again, he did not think so. At any rate, he is sending me for a vaginal ultrasound tomorrow. That is one test that I have NOT had.
Other things to note - my vaginal and pelvic exams were all normal...Also, I have bloody d, but not all of the time. Finally, I am pooping tons of mucus.
Any ideas would be appreciated - I am convincing myself that I have rectal cancer.
