They pumped me full of morphine and torradol, plus phenagan for nausua! They sent me home with Vicodan! I called my gyn he told me to call the office first thing in the morning he wants to a lap ASAP!
Here are some of my symtoms!

Lack of appitiate
Pelvic pain
high white blood cell count
frequent urination
moodiness9assume from pain)!, weightloss

Hi Colette,

I am so sorry you are going through all this right now, but you are seeing the doctor tomorrow, and thats great!
Now, you said you know that there is a growth on the ovary. Colette, this growth may not be malignant. I know you are very worried, and I am so glad that you went to the ER for the pain you have been experiencing. I know its hard not to think the worst, but until all the test results are in you don't know for sure what you are dealing with here. Have a good talk to your gyn tomorrow and get all the information you can from him on his thoughts on this at this point.
I think it would be a great idea to have someone look after your little one for a few days so you can catch up on your rest. Worrying is exhausting. Please let us know how your appointment goes tomorrow Colette. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers!!
Sending big hugs!!

Hi Colette,

I'm so sorry you're having this scare but as Maria mentioned, there are numerous conditions that can cause these symptoms. Its a very good thing that your Dr is having you checked out so quickly though, if only to give you some peace of mind.

Try if you can to relax, take on step at a time and get some much needed rest. There are several tests they can do to help figure out what's happening. If he/she does feel its something to worry about, please consider getting a consult with a Gyn Oncologist as this is their specialty and they'll be able to give you more specific information.

I wish you the best on the upcoming visit and hope you receive some news that will ease your mind. Please keep us posted on how you're doing when you can.

Here is a site that I often share with those who are questioning ovarian cancer.
I know this is very hard for you, but you need to get your rest. You have to try to keep your resistance up. Drink milkshakes and OJ. Follow up with your doctor's appt and know that we are all here for support! No matter what is wrong, you are doing the right thing by having these tests done by your doctor. You deserve to be healthy and your child needs you! Get the rest and medical attention that you need, so that you can be that healthy energetic mom again!

Well even though i don't want surgery again i made that phone call this morning! I already have a surgery date(bare with me here my pain pills are affecting my typing)!
I really think my ob/gyn is concerned he arranged for an emergency laparoscopy! I told him this friday he told me no no!! i'm doing it this wens...So this wens it is its at 3:30pm i have to be there at 2 pm its day surgery and he just said we'll take from there! So tomarrow morning i have to be at his office at 8 am for pre-op so much for taking my time lol! Usually i pick the date he practically did it! I think the concern is my white blood cell count was high-- wow so am i now the vicoden is working yaaa!!
