Pain years after hysterectomy

Hi, I had a hysterectomy  3- 4 years ago and my question is this I had several surgeries really. For endo, cysts and masses and of course adhessions. My questions is I am having pain in my lower stomach, back and down my legs, but what is weird I had my left ovary taken out and I still have the right one. And the sharp pains are on the left side mostly so there is no ovary there..... And the night sweat are a night mare.... So what could be up with this.... Shouldn't my right side hurt more where I still have the ovary?? Oh and My colon has a partial blockage but I really feel like my ovary is there again like the pain I had when they found a mass. They said my ovary was inside the mass and they took it out. But from the pain it's like they never did... Then pain is crazy really,,,, It seems like I never had surgeries... So if any you can relate or shed so light on this please let me know...Thanks

Hi

I checked your age on profile,,you certainly would not be in normal menopause. However..you may be in a medically induced one..Your remaining ovary could be not providing hormones for several reasons.

thus the night sweats..If I was you Id have a complete panel of hormones done. this will indicate if you need hrt or not.

Your colon has a partial blockage? what is being done about that...is it fecal impactation or something else..it needs to be take care of..rupture of colon is very serious..you do not want that.

The prob w many surgeries is they  try to get endo adhesions etc,,,but they may get 75 % and a new 35 % grows from the trauma of new surgery..its a they do the best they can type of thing..even if they got a 100% new surgery will make new probs.

hang in there..get that colon looked into please..a proctologist.

Thanks for the info, I do beleive I will try to make an appointment for a doctor.. I think my night sweats are from medical induced I think your right... and it somtimes happen during the day. And the partial blocked colon I was in the hopital for a short time until my colon started working again it simply just stopped working and the doctor said it was from a partial blockage from adhessions. And once the got it working properly they sent me home with a warning that it will sooner or later become completly blocked and they would fix it then,,, so I guess I just wait and hope it doesn't happen... they warned me I could come out with a coloscopy bag (SP?) Anyway the sharp pains were they took my ovary out is getting unbearable it is sharp and stabbing and its in my lower back and shoots down my legs.... My organs as they said was in a ball  and they stipped and cut and "bounced they back in place" so the doctor said, he cut some fatty tissue of my colon and bladder from where the endo and adhesions were on them as well....But when is enough, enough.... I leave with the pain daily so the hestorectomy did no good apparantly. And yes I worry about my colon alot but the doctors don't seem to be worried until it becomes completly blocked as I said early once it stopped working they put me in the hospital and got it working again and sent me home. So i guess any further surgeries as you said would make it worst. SO if any of you guys have been through this please any advice would be GREATLY appreciated. What are some options I have left so I can talk to the doctor and understand a realate some thought and opnions to him bought what is best for me......Without taking there word and not knowing anything diffrent Thank you all and God bless

Sciatic nerve can cause stabing pains in lower back and legs could be sciatia.
