tech couldn't 'see' it, what does that mean?

Hello ladies, I feel like I start a new topic almost on a daily basis...I'll give a quick rundown of my stats and then ask for some advice.....Hyst on Oct.3 2003 for stage IV endo and fibroids, took everything but right ovary...about six weeks ago all the old familiar pain and symptoms came back along with a few new (breast tenderness and painful bm's). Went to my dr, which I have a lot of confidence in and after examining me he found a 'mass' on my left side which he then scheduled me for an ultrasound and transvaginal ultrasound.

I had that this past Thursday and she said that she couldn't 'see' anything......what does that mean? He certainly felt something and I can feel that there is something not where it should be..The tech said it could be endo back or scar tissue...she also said my ovary was enlarged and that I had what looked like a 1-inch endometrial cyst on it.......I can't get in to see my dr until aug. 9....I think I will go mad until then!!

Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated.....prayers to all for good health and God bless............

Hi ladybug!

Sorry you are going thru all of this right now. I think waiting for results is the worst part!!!

Could you possibly just call your doctor and ask him for your ultrasound results? That's what I usually do, and they really do understand that you need to know......the waiting is misery!!

Do keep us posted please and let us know......

I agree with basketnut!

Although the ultrasound tech might be very experienced and all s/he is not a radiologist and can't interpret the ultrasound films. If you are worried, and I can't blame you, call the Dr's office and see if they can tell you what the offifical report says.

One other possibility, I had a cyst that was senstive to my cycle so some times it would be larger than at other times. I guess almost anything is possible.

Good luck, I'll keep you in my prayers
