Tired and broke
I'm struggling with the five year follow-ups. I'm having constant pain and GI issues, as well as some others. My follow-ups consist of CA125s and a CT scans, and not figuring out what is causing the pain besides the scar tissue they assume is in my belly. I'm going broke with the scans even with medical coverage and living on one income. I'm at a point where I don't want to pursue this anymore. Both times I've had cancer (ovarian, and then endometrioid malignant adenoma), it was a complete surprise where they went in and thought it would be nothing but it turned out to be cancer. I can't deal with any more surprises like that in my life and don't want to seek any more care. How do I overcome not wanting to know when I continue to have the same symptoms I had when I was originally diagnosed both times? I'm frustrated and giving up on followups at this point.
