I'll try to keep this as brief but informative as possible.
Ruptured L ovarian cyst 7 weeks ago with excruciating pain, 2nd day of menstrual cycle. Ultrasound at that time found fluid in cul-de-sac. Pain persisted. Four days post-period, I began spotting, which lasted 5 days, followed immediately by "another" period. Doc said it was "fluke" period. Pain persisted, "spread" to back and R side over 2.5 weeks, at which time another "fluke" period occurred and lasted 2 days w/heavy bleeding. CT scan found fluid in uterus and 3 cm cyst also on RIGHT ovary. Doc has not mentioned testing fluid in uterus or CA-125 test; has not scheduled a follow-up appt, just keeps prescribing pain meds. While CA-125 may or may not be premature at this time, I would rather risk a false positive than find out later that this is uterine cancer.
1. Is a CA-125 test warranted at this time, even as a precaution?
2. Why is there fluid in the uterus? And should I "strongly suggest" that the fluid in uterus be tested?
3. Should tests be done to determine whether R ovarian cyst is fluid-filled or solid?
Thank you so very, very much for any advice you can provide.
