Talk about a rollercoaster!

Well, I just got a call from the gynecologist, here in my office. He said he consulted with a radiologist, and they both looked at the ultrasound pictures instead of just relying on the ultrasound report, which talks about "complex growth" and "neoplasia." After looking at the pictures together, they think that it is not what was originally thought. That there is a strong likelihood that it is a hemorrhagic cyst that will resolve on its own. I am going to have another ultrasound at the end of April, and then see him again! Jesus!! What a (great) surprise!! Not that it means anything for certain, but it is yet another downgrading of the scariness. Even if it's a hemorragic cyst that doesn't resolve and needs to be treated, that can be done laparascopically.

Imagine happy dancing!

Thanks all!

Psychgrad - the blood test from the other day showed that I didn't have the elevated level of this thing that is often associated with ovarian cancer. And other characteristics of what's going on in my pelvic area also make it seem highly unlikely that it's cancerous.

That's SO great! I'm really happy for you. Just know that if that cyst ruptures, it's gonna hurt like hell. But what a relief to know for sure it isn't cancer!
