Have any ♀ had any success with using CBD oil?

I have been suffering LLQ pain since January this year. I had an ultrasound which found left adnexa containing a 3.2 x 2.2 x 2.3cm mass. It is inseparable from the uterus. The uterus is 6.7cm long. A 15mm isoechoic fibroid is suggested in the anterior myometrial body. Endometrium is 3mm thick. The pain is getting worse and I am now taking Tramadol ER 200mg. My bloodwork came back with Alpha Feta Protein at 13.7 ug/l (normal range 0.00 – 9.0). My GP seems to think there is nothing to worry about, I have been referred to a Gyny who I see on the 2nd June. I am 58 years old, have taken HRT for 7 years. My question is should I be doing anything more about this? Thank you.

You are correct to step beyond the exam and tests with your GP. These discussions need to be continued with a gynecologist. Ask the gyn about CT Scan and blood tests for various female cancer markers, such as CA125 for ovarian.

Thank you for your reply. I have had a CT scan which showed what the ultrasound showed. I had CA125 which came back normal 11.4 kU/L. I guess I am more worried about the AFP and the fact that the pain is getting increasingly worse seems like each day and now I have pain which tracts across my tummy and into my back.

Is there a cure for Ovarian Cancer 3C, I had two 6 courses chemos. No help so far

I have stage 4 ovarian. The disease is well controlled in my abdomen, pelvis and chest but I have had 4 lesions in my brain that they so far have been able to remove with radiation, no side effects. Anyone out there with a similar experience?

I am unable to watch this live today. Will the session be archived and be availabile after the live broadcast on a website?

I am not able to view it either.

I was not able to view it, either. I kept getting a “stand-by” message. I’m hoping it will be available on the website.

oops! should have read completely. It is on central time.

I see it is at one, but the link just keeps bringing me back to the sign up page? Not able to get to anything that gives me the “please stand by” message. Help would be appreciated. I am using google chrome for the browser. Thanks

Please disregard my last comment. I did not realize the webinar was in Youtube format. The link was blocked by my county IT so I was not seeing it.

Please advice. Does the webinar start in 9 minutes? Im on European timezone and cannot access
