Thanks. I actually did get in to the gyno today because the pain was getting worse; I wanted to get the pelvic out of the way so that if it wasn't related to the pelvis I could move forward on the colon pain possibility. Boy what an experience. I had the gyno tell me that the "lump" I was feeling that was causing me pain was an enlarged ovary. She rushes me off to get a pelvic ultrasound, which I had to wait 2 extra hours for, only to have the ultrasound tech tell me that she could see nothing abnormal with my left ovary. The tech asked me if the gyno had told me that my ovary was enlarged and when I said yes she said "You know your sigmoid colon runs right under there, so that may have been what she was feeling." Yeah...thanks...so who knows what is going on? The ultrasound results were supposed to be faxed to my gyno right away so I assumed she would call me to discuss them but she didn't. Toward the end of the afternoon I called her, but she never called back. Oh, I also had the US tech tell me that my bladder was inflamed...I suffered from a nasty UTI two weeks ago and have been complaining about bladder pain since, but my PCP told me nothing was wrong. GRRR...if it's not one thing, it's another!
So I will probably be seeing my gyno for a follow-up, my gastro and a urologist. Fun times! I really hope nothing is going on with my colon though, it makes me nervous.
