Hi. I'm 42 yrs old + have had cervical cancer. In 2010 I had a partial hysterectomy (uterus + fallopian tubes removed - ovaries intact). 2 months ago I experienced sharp abdominal pains (left side) - other symptoms included back pain and bladder pressure (feeling the need to urinate frequently). I have had an internal ultrasound (left side incredibly tender) - results were normal but left ovary not "optimally visible". I then had CA-125 blood test and CT scan. Both came back normal. Even had a barium procedure to rule out intestinal issues. To date I've had the odd pelvic/abdominal pain but nothing near as severe as I had 2 months ago. I also still experience middle back pain on a daily basis. I am relieved that all these tests have come back normal but I still worry that something is not quite right. Should I just let it go and stop worrying?
