Thanks for the query.

You have provided me with good information.

You have undergone endometrial biopsy and CA 125 and you are awaiting results.

Normally your doctor may suggest a CA 125 test if he is suspecting that you may be having ovarian, endometrial, and peritoneal or tissue can confirm a diagnosis of these cancers. That is the reason an endometrial biopsy has been done to you.

An endometrial biopsy may discover the presence of cancer cells in the endometrium or cervix. Till the reports arrive we cannot confirm this.

You are having pain in your lower back and ribs too. Gall stones are commonly seen in women who are above 40years old, obese and have a fatty diet. Also if you have a family history of gallstones, diabetes and you take oral contraceptive pills, you will have gall stones. The pain and the abdominal bloating may also be due to this.

Inadequate intake of fiber causes constipation and also gallstones. You are suffering from both of these. Eat a high-fiber diet that includes healthy fats. Choose a diet that's full of a variety of fruits and vegetables. These high-fiber foods may help prevent additional gallstones from forming. Also include healthy, unsaturated fats in your diet. Foods that contain unsaturated fats include fish and nuts. Increase the intake of fluids to at least 8 to 10 glasses of water daily.

Take vitamin supplements. People who don't get enough vitamin C, vitamin E or calcium may have an increased risk of gallstones. You can use Psyllium husk for constipation too.

Diet and medications can be tried initially, in-case the galls tones are causing further complications surgery will be required. Be positive there might be a probability that your symptoms are mostly due to gall stones, and are not cancerous.

Take the right diet and exercise daily.

I hope I have answered your query. Please accept my answer if you have no follow up queries.
