I feel like I’m slowly going crazy… I had a hysterectomy May 9, 2017. By August, I was diagnosed with mesenteric panniculitis that was “accidentally discovered” when I continued having abdominal pain after surgery (my gyno naturally thought it was my ovaries; CT scans done and radiologist found the MP). I was sent to a surgical oncologist that was said to be a “GI guru” and have extensive knowledge in all things “weird and rare”. He was rather dismissive about it all as, based on my lab work my gyno had done, there was nothing that made him think there was a concern for cancer. Just brushed it off as an “annoyance issue”, that the pain could stay for a month or a year, but he would give me Mobic to help with the inflammation and it should eventually resolve itself (standard treatment for MP is through steroids, but I have anaphylactic reactions to all steroids, and I’m kinda trying to NOT die….). I’m a month in on the Mobic, the flare ups in pain are more frequent with the pain being more and more intense. Nausea has also started to set up and my appetite is waning, at best, as most of the time, the thought of food makes me sick. My PCP and gyno weren’t pleased with the consult I had from oncol. One has ordered a repeat CT to be done in a couple of months to monitor progression/improvement. The other has referred me to gastro and hematology. I had a positive ANA and a positive double strand DNA. My spleen has been consistently mildly enlarged on the past few CT’s I’ve had done. Research material on this is limited. I feel like I’m in a snowglobe, being shaken up with all these doctors, throwing around words like “necrosis” and “restricted blood flow” and “cancer” and referral after referral. I’m frustrated and tired of “hurry up and wait”…. is there ANYONE that’s ever dealt with this that can give me a little insight on it all???
