    Thatís so frustrating, so what are they suggesting?
    How can they go against your doctors advice?!

    When they stopped it to do the contrast I could move around then.

    In the US there are only private insurance companies, and they can pretty much do anything they want.
    I believe this is a weird protocol that they have, in a sense that you have to do x number of ultrasouns, and/or a CT scan before they approve the mri.
    Now the obgyn is going to refer me to a radiology clinic where they will do another ultrasound and the radiologist is going to give me a referral for an mri and the insurance co will probably accept.

    Oh i thought they inject the contrast beforehand. that's good to know.

    I see, well at least they are not ignoring you.
    They take images before and after contrast. Itís honestly not too bad.

    Hi, sorry for the late reply.
    Blood tests including tumor markers turned out to be fine. I don't think my insurance will approve the MRI tho. I received a letter saying they don't consider the MRI to be necessary as i don't have cancer confirmed by biopsy.
    As far as how i feel, this month everything has been completely normal. No pain, no weird symptoms, no nothing. I believe it's because i ovulated from the other ovary.

    Regarding my diagnostic, I'm in the twilight zone. If they don't approve the MRI, i don't know how they're gonna go about it. Probably i will get more ultrasounds i guess.

    I hope this helps.

    Re: Abnormal Ovarian Cysts

    So I had a CT scan for the ovarian cyst last week. I believe that the results should've been sent to my doctor by now.
    I am so nervous about calling the doctor to schedule a follow up appointment.
    If it was something bad, they would've called by now? or do they review the scans when i make an appointment?

    My doctor called me within a few days. Theyíre all different though. How many days do you think you can wait?
    And yes I know, the wait is awful x

    So I did the MRI and the doctor's office just called and they want to talk to me about the test results.
    I am getting very anxious. My appointment is tomorrow at 12.
