Oh Celey- you sound just like me! I had the exact same thing happen to my right ovary and tube- so now I only have 1 ovary and 1 tube left... and I pray that I can still have kids! They found another mass on my remaining ovary in Dec 09 and I just found out yesterday my CA125 ( cancer marker) is elevated, so I am in panic mode that something else is going on. I see the gyn oncologist next week. But like you I never had female issues until I started having UC/Crohns issues. It just plain sucks! My periods used to be maybe 3 days, very light and totally painless... now they are 7-10 days, extremely heavy and the pain is unreal. GRRRR!!! So I honestly beleive there is a connection between CD and gyn issues.
Ah...thanks for letting me vent. I am SO VERY nervous about my CA125:(
Dx with UC in 97, hospital stays monthly, tons of blood transfusion, bowel rest on TPN, prednisone, asacol, sulfa,
99- multiple failed remicade treatments, more hosptial stays
finally in 2001 had enough and had total colectomy (j-pouch) surgery, 1st step was good, then the reversal was not such a breeze, got peritinitis and almost didn't make it.
the rest of 2001-2006 were amazing!
now having problems again- they are thinking Crohns.- have been on Humira with no luck
