Ovarian Cancer Whispers - so listen... Watch for Pelvi c or abdominal pain or discomfort; vague but persistent gastrointestinal upsets such as gas, n a usea, and indigestion; frequency and / or urgency of urination in the absence of an infection; unexplained weight gain or weight loss; pelvic and / or abdominal swelling, bloating and / or feeling of fullness; ongoing unusual fatigue; or unexplained changes in bowel habits. If symptoms persist for more than 2 weeks, ask your doctor for a combination pelvic / rectal exam, CA-125 blood test, and transvaginal ultrasound. A Pap Test WILL NOT detect ovarian cancer .
Please keep her going.
Just wanted to pass this along. I was sent this from a friend via e-mail. I wanted to share that I read a post on another site of a woman who believes Mirena helped her develop ovarian cancer. She had Mirena in for three months and after removal was diagnosed with full blown ovarian cancer. She is suspicious because she is young and has never had any issues like this before. Not sure if there is a link but wanted to pass this along anyway. It is important to know that a pap cannot detect this. I never knew that. Take care all!:)
