I went to the doctor yesterday with my third uterine infection in the last four or five years. My doctor said these are very uncommon and he's very concerned. On my last two, I had an ultrasound. The first one showed the uterus had a thick lining. I was placed on birth control for several months to shed the lining and some antibiotics for the infection. The second infection occured about a year later and that ultrasound showed that there was a cyst, which I didn't find out until yesterday. Now two years later I have to have another ultrasound on Monday and they did a lot of blood work including the CA-125 which is to check for cancer. I'm pretty much freaked out at this point with the worry of cancer at age 34. I've already had a small stroke a couple of years ago and lost part of my eyesight in my right eye. I'm already going to have to take bloodthinnners and cholesterol meds for the rest of my life. And now this. My back has been hurting for a long time now and I just thought it was probably due to all the lifting that is involved with my job, but now I'm worried considering that is a symptom of ovarian cancer. What other syptoms has everyone had? Also, does anyone know how long it will take to get the results of the CA-125 back? I would really appreciate anyones help and input.
