    Oh No

    I was having a lot of pain inside in the front and back that caused me to scream out loud this is how it all started for me.I called my insurance company nurse to see what they wanted me to do,I couldn't even roll over when I would try to sleeping the pain got so bad. The nurse told me to go to the emergency room to be seen,but to not go to the same emergency room that I had been going to in the past because they weren't finding what the problems were. The emergency room doctor sent me to have 3 MRI's done when the results came back they showed disc disease,hernia's in a disc in my lumbar and my neck,and spots in my cervical area and on my liver that appeared to be cyst like. I don't have a cervix my O.B. doctor took that out 10 years ago. I went to see my O.B. doctor and I told him what the MRI results showed he said that can't be right because I don't have a cervix. He did a pap smear test because I was having pain in my lower stomach and I had a bad smell coming from my vagina. My doctor told me he wanted me to go to another one of his offices,so that he could get a better look at what was going on inside of me. When I went to the other office he told me and my nurse that he couldn't do the procedure at that site either because there was to much in there and it would cause me to much pain,he would have to put me to sleep to do surgery. I went into his office before going home and I began to cry because I felt like it was cancer,but he assured me to not worry it wasn't. He did the surgery and told my daughter that he removed all of what was in there.When the test results came back it was severe cancer cells. I am having the same pain again and the smell is coming back. I have pain in my liver,kidneys,and my stomach,I hurt when I don't eat and I hurt when I do, so, I really can't tell if I am having a hunger pain or not. I don't know if I have cancer on my liver because no one has sent me to be checked for it,I guess because the MRI said that it appeared to be cyst like. The MRI also showed that I had cyst like things on my cervix,which the area wasn't checked because I don't have one,but yet my doctor found the severe cancer cells in my vagina. Now my insides hurt and I am having a lot of pain all over. I just don't know what to think or do anymore all these signs and I'm not being sent to get checked. What do I do? That is if it's not to late and I'm not ate up inside with it.
