My name is Heather. I am 24 years old, married with two young children. In October of 2006 I started having really bad pain when I would sit down and or go to stand. The pain did not leave after a few months so I went to see my primary care doctor. My doctor first ordered an ex ray which showed nothing. An MRI followed showing no cause that should cause pain in the low back however it did show a right ovarian cyst. Of to the OBGYN I went, she ordered a CA-125 blood test that I took on day 14 of my cycle that came back slightly elevated at 37.3 then an ultrasound that showed a 4.5cm cyst with subcentemeter cysts growing on it. Now I have to go the June 21st for a follow up ultrasound and another CA-125 test. Lets see what happens, until then I am left worrying about what will happen sense my mother has Ovarian cancer when she was just one year older then what I am now, also this low back pain keeps getting worse as days pass into weeks, it will not give up or go away. I hope to find others who can be a support as I go thru this as well as to learn, if it is cancer I plan to kick it’s but if not then I hope to be a support for others who do have this type of cancer as we all need friends.
See ya around,
