Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi, and thank you for coming here with your question.
Thanks for responding
My guess is that they've seen some cells suggestive of a GIST tumor. Being that it looked normal when he took it out it is likely that IF that is what it is then they've caught it early.
what exactly is a GIST tumor?
Again, IF they found something malignant (which I feel awful even typing over the computer) they would want to run more tests to make sure that the rest of you is okay.
so i have still been getting the same pains as before surgery
GIST tumor is a kind of tumor that is found in the GI (gastro intestinal) tract.
How long ago was surgery?
so my doctor last night said it could all still be linked but he didnt have more info on what teh abnormal cells could be
i have had the pains for 2 years with constant urine infections ie blood, protien and high white cell count
I would think that by now most of the post-operative pain should be gone.
Was the surgery laporascopic? Did the surgeon say if he looked around inside?
Yeah thats what it was and they said everything looked normal barr a small cysts on ovary but that was nothing to worry about
even appendix looked okay when he took it out
but ovbi after further inspection thats not the case
My guess (please remember, as I am not your doctor and I did not see what he saw) is that he might want to get some imaging studies of the ovary.
no problem thanks. im just hoping due to not wanting to see me until 27th of march its nothing too serious to worry about
If this is in fact a GIST or any kind of malignant cells then he might want to do more extensive imaging.
It sounds odd to me that s/he would want to wait so long if there were abnormal cells :/
i tried to call today to get another appointment but they have none
do u think its worth pushing?
I think if this was happening to me I would call the doctor and speak to him directly and ask what the cells were suggestive of, and what he is planning to follow up with.
Yes, I think it is worth pushing. Otherwise you get to worry for months!
thank you muchly :) will give them a call tomorrow AM
really appreciate your time
Thank you for coming here.
I hope I've given you excellent service.
Please remember that you can come back and ask any more questions without being charged again.
thank you x
Just been back to the hospital and they advised it was a tumour 2.5mm so nothing further to worry about as they already have my appendix out.
Back to sqaure one with the pain im still in and back to my own doctor this afternoon
