still have alot of pai

I had a partial hysterectomy a year ago due to fibroids. Two weeks ago I had to have ovaries removed due to  cysts, had a complex cyst with lesions on left ovary and cysts on right overy. I also had free fluid in the pelvic region. I now have severe pain again on my left side under my rib cage (had this before surgery)that radiates across my lower back. I have to uriante quite frequently and this causes alot of pain in my abdomen, my stomach has also swollen up again like before I had surgery and have a general felling of just being ill, tired all the time cant sit or stand for very long. Is this something that I should be concerned about, am really fearing the worst, please advise.

Hi There,

I think you need to be seen by your surgeon. You are in the time after surgery where I worry about surgery related problems.

I would list these as:
---infection
---pneumonia
---bladder infection
---kidney infection
---blockage of the ureters (the tubes that take the urine from kidney to the bladder)
---bowel obstruction
---blood clot in the lungs

and it could just be gas.  So please see you surgeon for a careful check up

take care

hi!  i had a huge ovarian mass removed 3 months ago.  I had a 7 inch long vertical laparotomy.  the part of the scar that is in my pubic area is red, sore, bulging and sort of looks like a "leech".  are these signs of a hernia.  when i apply pressure or lean back, the scar still hurts.  i am still unable to wear jeans. are these signs of hernia.  would appreciate any feedback.  

how long do you think it will take for me to completely healed?  thanks!

Hi Phoenix, you should see your doctor. You may have an infection under the scar or you could be developing a thick scar called a keloid.

dear Barreld,
It is unusual not to see the ureter but it depends on the surgical technique used at surgery.
best wishes
