I had a flat stomach and then it looked like I was 6 months pregnant

Posted by monicam @monicam, Apr 9, 2016

A few years ago I had a flat stomach and the next day it looked like I was 6 months pregnant. I went to many specialists and they all say all my tests come .ut negative or normal. They say nothing is wrong. My stomach hasn’t gotten smaller. It’s hard and heavy and hurts. I even had a tummy tuck thinking it would help, but it didn’t. It ended up popping back out. I’ve found rare stomach diseases, but I don’t think doctors read those

Hi @monicam, welcome to Connect.
I’m tagging @Steph38 on this discussion thread as she described a similar situation a while back. Steph any thoughts for Monica?

I don’t want to scare you but have the doctors looked into ovarian cancer? Just a suggestion. Keep us informed when you find out what is causing it. Good luck

Could be endometriosis. Any family members have it? Cousins? Any pains during menses? Best to have laparoscopy done. Only way to confirm

Welcome to Connect @michellecrcrn and for your suggestions to @monicam

@monicam, here is some information about
Ovarian cysts http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/ovarian-cysts/basics/definition/con-20019937
and
Endometriosis http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/endometriosis/basics/definition/con-20013968

If you would like to seek a second opinion, here is the contact information from Mayo Clinic http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63

Have these conditions been ruled out in your case? Any updates on your situation?
