Confused by these symptoms
KristenF2770 posted:

For the past few months, I've been dealing with the feeling of incomplete bowel evacuation, bloating that makes me look several months pregnant, frequent urination, pelvic pressure, painful intercourse, & dull lower back pain. I've had a CA-125 blood test, pelvic ultrasound, vaginal ultrasound, stomach x-ray, gastric emptying test, and a colonoscopy & upper GI - all of which showed nothing wrong. The doctors say it's probably just IBS, but I'm not convinced. I know my body and I feel that something is definitely wrong. In the last two weeks, the symptoms have gotten agressively worse - to the point where I feel lousy almost every day. Is it possible that all of these tests could have missed ovarian cancer ? How do I get the doctors to explore further ?
