I'm still here, been over in the thyroid threads for a while but I keep reading just not commenting. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis the day before Thanksgiving. My immune system is now attacking my thyroid. Back 4 months ago I had emergency surgery for a cancerous ovarian tumor. It was an 11 lb tumor on my right ovary. It got that big because I thought it was my Lupus or Fibro giving me fits with alternating diarreah and constipation and I started bloating on top of that and I just chalked it up to 1 or the other and kept trying to ride through it. Finally couldn't take it any longer and went to the dr.
I just wanted some Tylenol 3, they couldn't believe I wasn't in that much pain and just wanted something to ease it. I was more bloated than I thought because they set me up for an immediate ultrasound, then with those results had me do a ct scan all in the same day. Problem was it was on a late Friday evening and dr gave me some pain meds to take until Mon when they could get me in to start workups.
Sunday came around and started having more pain than I could handle and finally got to where I couldn't take the pain anymore so went to the ER and by the end of the day they were sending me by ambulance to OU medical center in OKC, 75 miles away. I had a total hysterectomy, plus an appendectomy as well as removal of the tumor which had ruptured, reason for all that pain Sunday. Found out at that time that i'm alergic to Morphine. Oh boy that was not fun.
They took a bunch of biopsies and I came out lucky on that. The tumor was officially called A Mucinous Carcinoma of the right Ovary, stage 1 C, all biopsies were negative, did not need chemo or radiation. Thank Goodness. Checkups have all been fine on that end.
Still feeling like crap though because i've been in a flare ever since. No energy whatsoever, no pain really just feeling weak. 2 days ago I took a 10 minute lukewarm shower and I barely made it out of it without falling, as it was my legs gave out on me and I sat down in the floor. Had to yell for my husband to help me up and he dried me off and helped me get to my recliner where I sat for the rest of the day.
I'm not going to get into any more problems i'm having but these are the most major. I'm just sick and tired of being sick and tired and just tired of feeling weak as a baby kitten.
