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.
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:
---blockage of the ureters (the tubes that take the urine from kidney to the bladder)
---blood clot in the lungs
and it could just be gas. So please see you surgeon for a careful check up
so sorry that you feel so bad. I would for sure talk to your doctor again. you cant go thorough pain like that. i had a ct scan and they said they could not see my right uter. i wonderied the same thing. the urologist was not worried about it. but i wonder should i be also.
hope you feel better soon keep us posted
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!
