Customer Question
Hello, Ive been diagnosed with...
Hello, Ive been diagnosed with nonhodgkin lymphoma. Ive recently started chemo. I'm having women issues and visited the ER. I was told they can not see my left ovary. I know I need to see a obgyn asap. However as you may know I have to be referred by my primary care doctor. That can take weeks. I got lucky and called my local health center and was able to get an appointment for Monday 25. The problem I have with that is I'm schedule for a chemo treatment that day. My question is should I go to have my annual exam and reschedule chemo or what. I'm scared I may have cervical cancer which may be causing my symptoms. My oncologist told me when I asked can we rule out cervical cancer, I need to see an obgyn

swollen abdominal , huge retaining fluids. Lower back pain. I'm sure I'm not pregnant but my cycle started for one day then stop. At the Er they gave me a ultrasound couldn't see left ovary. Very tender inside of vagina. I'm sure I have one ovarian cyst. Over the past two years ive had four cyst appear on or around my vagina. Hard swallowing constant constipation

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
