thanks Chris and Sun... You're right.  Chris, you recall how this all started about 3-4 weeks ago?  Its taken me that long to make a simple doc appt.  My brother said, "if she'd seen something worrisome, she probably would've said, I'm not allowed to say anything.". I should be elated that she said NO.  At one point she pressed the wand on a certain spot by the left ovary and it hurt (in the wata painful, blind pimple hurts.  Its prolly a fat nasty cyst.  Even my doc said tthey're common in women my age, and can cause urinary urgency.  Now they want me to visit on Feb 25 for results -- geez.  Thanks ladies for our input.

Yes, I sure do remember!
Well, it sure does seem as if it's a cyst. I had a couple a few years back. One caused me quite a bit of discomfort and/or pain for quite a while, and one I didn't know I had. So, they can all be different. If yours is a bit larger, it very possibly could cause urinary symptoms.
I do remember my doctor telling me that the vast majority of cysts are completely harmless!

Best wishes, will be praying for you!  :yes:

Thanks... I'm hoping my doctors office will get back to me sooner than later.  Waiting 3 weeks for a f/u appt is the reason I hate going to docs.   On the bright side, I've never read of OC presenting like this.  Keep me in your prayers .  <3

I know. It's frustrating and scary when they schedule the follow up so far away.

I absolutely will!  :pray:

Thanks.  If I don't hear from them I may call next week and ask the nurse to review my result.

NyTViolet, I know exactly what you are going through.

For the past four months, I have been getting shooting pains in my lower right abdomen (ovary area).  I shrugged it off as nothing but when it continued on, I started to worry.  I often read that ovarian cancer isn't felt until it's in advanced stages so the fact that I had pain that was continuing REALLY worried me.  I went to my doctor about it and she suggested I have an abdominal u/s, along with a pelvic done.  I did and believe it or not, everything came back clear.  I do have several fibroids in my uterus which can cause all sorts of problems but I knew that.  Both ovaries looked fine.  To tell you how much pains can be created by our minds and worrying, after I got the news the pain has almost vanished.  I'm not worrying about it anymore, therefore, I don't feel the pain.  I'm not focusing on it.  I'm 45 and really felt something was wrong.  I know how hard the waiting can be for the results. Mine took about 7 days.  Just know that at our age, things start to change in our bodies and we may start to feel different things.  I really believe everything will come back fine for you. :)

IM SUCH A CLASSIC HYPOCHONDRIAC!!!  I couldn't wait until my appointment on the 25th, so iI called my doctor's office and asked the nurse if my results were back from my u/s.  The RN Johanna, said "I've got your chart...let me look.".  Dead silence for 30 seconds while she looks at the results, my heart rate has to be 100 at this point.  Finally she says everything looks normal!  I immediately said a silent prayer of thanks to God, then thanked Johanna and hung up.  Huge wave of relief.  I'm still having slight urgency, and cramping near the left ovary that comes and goes...so all this fanfare was probably IBS, gas or just typical fibromyalgia BS.  That's the trouble with fibro...it causes so many diffuse, intense pains, that it keeps you guessing.  Anyhow, thanks to Chris, Sun and the rest who were there when I needed help keeping my sanity.  <3.

NYtViolet - so happy to hear all is well!  (I personally didn't think it was anything bad at all, but the stress or constant worry can be WORSE than a physical ailment!  But I'm glad your mind is at ease) Glad you called, why put yourself through weeks of worry?   I don't understand the medical profession, we can put men on the moon, maybe men on Mars, we can communicate with people all over the WORLD in 3 seconds or less, but they can't tell people medical results for WEEKS?
