Lower right abdomen/groin pain related to hysterectomy?
For the past month I have been having achy and sometimes burning pain in my lower right abdomen into my leg and groin. So far doctors have ruled out urological problems, appendicitis, and a hernia. It's been suggested I may have infected lymph nodes but I'm wondering could this pain be an adhesion or other complication from the laparascopic hysterectomy/oophrectomy I had 5 months ago?
It certainly maybe related to adhesive disease (scar tissue), but then again it may not. I agree with being evaluated for common illness. I do recommend you f/u with your gynecologist as well being that you pain is also in the lower quadrants. I also recommend you be evaluated for nerve sciatic pain as well.
