As many of you know I have been jumping through medical hoops since I miscarried in May. I've had several blood tests, 2 ultra-sounds and about 254 million panic attacks that turned out to be for practically nothing.
Let me give you the long list of things that I don't have but have been tested for recently...
- thyroid issues
- cancer that is in my blood
- cancer in my stomach
- cancer in my ovaries
- a tubal pregnancy
- cholesterol issues
- high blood pressure
- low blood sugar
- incorrect and constantly changing blood counts
- an actual baby
- low potassium
- metabolism issues
- hormone deficiencies (in many forms)
- blood poisoning or an additional complication from the miscarriage
So that's the summed up list.
I do still have Stein Leventhal Syndrome (or the more severe form of PCOS for those Soul Cysters out there). I also have hair that's falling out, pain, exhaustion, hand tremors, numbness and tingling (thanks to the meds) and no menstrual cycle at the moment still.
Mostly, I have 1 ovary that is atrophied which I've had for awhile and now the other one has a cyst on it. But instead of going away on it's own...it's just hanging out and sometimes increasing slightly in size.
I've been given 4 options. Have a total hysterectomy now and stop worrying about it. Have a partial hysterectomy or the cyst removed now and worry a little because people with PCOS have a higher risk of cancer later. Have the cyst removed now and try to have another baby at impossibly bad odds. Wait and see what happens.
I have an appointment on the 14th where I will see if the medication I am on is helping the cyst go away at all.
Like I said when we took the first cancer test...at least it's not cancer.
