Well I broke down and went to the doctor on Friday. I knew I couldn't see my actual doctor, but I could get an appointment with the Nurse Practitioner, and after talking (crying...again) with the nurse on the phone I decided that was what I needed to do. I was just still in so much pain, and I couldn't wait ten days to see why.
Turns out I have a 6.5cm cyst on one of my ovaries. Actually, as the tech panned the ultrasound over she was like "Oh. Yes. This explains it." She then pointed at this tiny little sliver of tissue around the cyst and said "do you see that? That is the only bit of healthy ovarian tissue I can see. The rest is completely covered." She noted in the report that the cyst could be a classic cyst, or it could be a mass of endometriosis. Awesome.
The other ovary, not wanting to be left out, was not where it is suppose to be. Apparently the endo moved in and decided it was all for rearranging the furniture. So... those two things explain the pain. That and the fact that there is most likely a lot of endo in there they can't see on the ultrasound. Looks like I am heading directly for the OR, no passing go, no $200. Or at least, no $200 for me. I am sure this surgery will put more than $200 in several people's pockets.
Since my doctor was out of town I have to wait for a call from someone today or tomorrow to find out what he thinks. The Nurse Practitioner said they would basically just be calling to tell me my surgery date. She said not to worry, they should be able to get me in before my next cycle. Please god let that be true. I really don't thing I can make it through a repeat of last month. My eyes fill with tears every time I even think about it. It's not right to be terrified of your period.
Just in case you are still wanting to vote. We are in 17th. Yes, this thing lasts forever. I totally agree.
