Hello. About 2 years ago I had my left ovary removed due to numerous cysts. Luckily it was not cancer however I have had several abnormal paps (low grade) over the years. Just recently my left side, where my ovary used to be, has been hurting. Not a bad hurt, kinda of a crampy feeling. Im so scared. I have had no bleeding or spotting (which I did when I had the cysts) and the pain seems to be worse during my period. Im 34 year old and also have endrometisis (sp?). Has anyone had any similiar issues?
I had my right ovary removed in April 06. I still get crampy feelings over there. When that ovary had the big cyst on it, I felt pain on the oposite side at times. I think they call it referred pain. The object causing the pain in on one side but the pain is felt on the other. Doctor also said I might get "ghost pains" on that side.
Anyway, I recently had an u/s and doc looked on the right side and didn't see anything, I have 3 cysts on the left side, and still from time to time feel cramping on the right side.
NOt sure if this helps, just wanted you to know I have also had pain on the side where my ovary was removed.
Sorry, I just checked on the correct spelling and the name of the woman who promotes this technique for deep massage using a ball...is Yamuna. Yamuna body rolling and it is all one word and a dot com just to get you started.
My opinion here is that it is possibly pain from adhesions, surgical adhesions especially. These things cannot be seen on MRI's and I don't think they can be seen on MRI's. I had dibilitating pain for over a year until I had an exercise teacher who took good care of me and taught me about a thing called "Yumana's Body rolling." Yumana is the name of the woman who discovered the technique..or promotes it at least. Awesome relief....I needed to break up the adhesions.
I have a post saved on my computer if you want to see more information.
Someone might come along and talk about the endometriosis connection...is this the cause of pain maybe? Hope you get some relief soon.
Thanks Mary. I think alot of it is in my mind now as I keep thinking about it and get scared so that makes things worse. Again, its not really a pain, kind of a pulling, crampy sensation. I believe while I was recovering I may have pulled something in the incision as I had quite a bit of pain during the recovery. Your mind tends to roam and you start thinking "oh my god, do I have cancer?"
not really... the stabbing pain was when I was recovering and it was awful whenever I stood up. I had to hold my side. The pain now really isnt a pain per say, more of a discomfort feeling. Again, I think the more I obsess about it, the worse it gets, plus Im fighting off something right now (cold?) so my body is aching anyways this week
I had my right ovary removed last July due to a tumor. I was also told that I have endometriosis. For the last 6 or 7 periods, I feel the same type of pain you describe-cramping- and, for the last two periods, every time I try to put in a tampon, it hurts even worse on that same area. I'm, of course, going to see the doctor, but I'm scared like you are. Best of luck to you and keep me posted.
I recently had my right ovary removed due to chronic cysts. Ever since then I have been having severe cramping pain. Ultra sounds show nothing and the doc said that I will probably have unexplained pain forever and should go to pain management. Well today the pain was so severe, so I went to the hospital and they did a cat scan and it showed a mass where my ovary used to be. I am so scared. He wouldn't tell me much except to see my doc asap. Make sure you have all the tests done before you accept the answer of ghost pain. Also if anyone has any ideas what this might be, I am open to suggestions. I am unable to contact my doctor for a visit due to the weekend. I would appreciate the feed back. Thank you and good luck Renee, hope I helped.
Hello Ladies. About 4 years ago I had a hysterectomy because of a benign tumor. Everything was removed. I have been experiencing pain on my right side where my ovary used to give me problems. The pain is the same as when I had a cyst on it, that eventually burst. I have been worried about it for a couple of years now and of course when I go to the doctor it doesn't hurt so I forget to mention it. I have just been thinking that I must have another cyst somewhere in the space that is there now. :-) I don't know if this is possible, but I don't see why not.
Angel22, the pain I have is a sharp, stabbing pain. It doesn't just occur when I sit down, cough or sneeze. I can just be walking and it will start in. I don't mean taking a walk, just walking from the car to my office is an example. I can just be sitting watching the TV and it will happen. Then the pain just goes away. It can last a few minutes to a few hours. Nothing really makes it feel better. I just have to wait it out.
Hello all - I had a hysterectomy 6 weeks ago, and everything was taken out, uterous, tubes, ovaries, etc.. But the whole reason I had the surgery was pain in my lower right side... I was sure they'd see my appendix was bad in there, but she said it was beautiful :(. Anyway, I am still having not only that pain but also the same pain on the left side more often now too. All of the previous posts are really old, but I was hoping someone had a solution on what it was? My 6 week follow up is on Monday, and i HATE having to tell her that I am still having this pain, but I really don't want to be pacified as the surgery having just been a short time ago, I should expect some pain, yadda yadda - my pain sounds just like yours. Doesn't matter if walking or sitting/laying down, just stabbing pain and leaves as quickly as it comes, sometimes lasts for hours, sometimes just a few minutes - and SOMETIMES it's like a knife just as I stand. I was wondering if it could be a hernia? Anyway, was hoping after a few years now some of you had some relief and answers?
Since the pain feels like it did before the hysterectomy, your female organs may not have been the source of the pain. Did your gyn ever give you a diagnosis? Do you maybe have endometriosis? Many women have hysterectomies for endo but that is not a cure since endo implants can be found throughout the pelvis and will likely continue to cause pain, organ removal or not. I hope you get some answers and relief!
