All this wait and see is going to kill me.Remember me?
I saw my gyno for the first time last Monday, for a pelvic, had urine and blood tests run. There was some discomfort and tenderness during the pelvic, and she scheduled me for a transvaginal ultrasound the following day. Also prescribed an antibiotic in case I had experienced a cyst bursting to prevent infection, and also gave me a script for Naprosyn 500mg.
The ultrasound the next day (Tuesday) was incredibly uncomfortable and at times painful, despite the tech's best efforts. I could she felt bad every time I winced and whimpered. Ended up with pangs the rest of the day, and even worse the day after. By end of day Wednesday, a sneeze had me doubled over crying. Eased up over the weekend, never entirely went away. taking the Naprosyn every twelve hours doesn't seem to help as much as I'd like.
Today was the start of my period AND my followup. So I went in feeling pretty pathetic anyway. I got a copy of my report so I can't forget anything.
Turns out the cyst on my right ovary, previously measured at 1.6 cm by an urgent care u/s tech, was now 3.1 cm with some internal echoes. May represent a hemorrhagic cyst. There's also apparently a small amount of free fluid in my cul-de-sac.
Current plan is another transvaginal ultrasound in three weeks to check for growth. Then I might be looking at a laproscopy, either for removal or to look for endo.
I'm glad I have gyno (a wonderful A.P.R.N.) who is listening to me and moving forward, but all this waiting and not knowing for sure is driving me nuts.
