First off I would like to thank everyone who takes the time to read my post and I hope one of you can help me.
I had my first and only child on 11-15-11, and I expected to bleed after I had my daughter but not as much as I have. I started bleeding the day I had her and it stopped on 1-22-12. I thought my body would finally get a chance to regulate itself. The bleeding resumed on 1-24-12 and didn't stop till 5-19-12. And this wasn't light bleeding. At worst, I was going through a super tampon and large pad every 10-15 minutes, and at best, I could go through a tampon every 45-60 minutes.
On the 9th of May I was told I had a four inch cyst on my left ovary. My doctor prescribed me Lo Loestrin Fe birth control pills to try and dissolve the cyst. And I don't know if these are other symptoms of a cyst but I'm also felt very weak, been nauseous, had horrible heartburn, gotten tired super easy, and I've been getting the urge to urinate often. I have taken countless pregnancy tests that have all come back negative.
I have been having crippling pains in my pelvic region for about three months now. They are worst than the pains I had when giving natural, unmedicated birth to my daughter. I've often had to leave work because I couldn't walk and there are times where I cannot care for my baby. I have seen two different doctors so far. First doctor told me that I was imagining all of it. And the second said it was a cyst. But I called a third doctor and he said that a cyst could not do all of this to my body.
I feel like noone believes that I could be going through this. I have gone to the local ER and they just pump me full of pain medicine and tell me to see my regular doctor.
I'm tired of doctor's acting like i don't know my own body. Anybody have any ideas? They won't even help when I ask to be tested for cancer. I'm hoping I'm wrong but I would feel better if I felt like someone would actually try to help me. And we have tried several medicines to control the pain.
Here is a list of the medicines we've tried:
Yes= helped No= did not help
No-Tylenol 3 w/codeine (300/30)
No-Tylenol extra strength (OTC)
No-Hydrocodone w/ Tylenol (500/5)
