Examination: SONOGRAPHY OF THE PELVIS

distended "pouchy" look to pelvic area and lower abdomen
The uterus is positioned normally measuring 4.3 x 7.7 x 3.5 cm.
Uniform morphology and echotexture. Endometrial stripe complex
has a normal morphology and a full-thickness of between 8 and 9
mm. Both ovaries positioned normally. The right ovary measures
2.8 x 1.6 cm with 7 mm cyst. The left ovary positioned normally
measuring 2.4 x 1.7 cm with numerous small follicles. Small
amount of fluid in the cul-de-sac and adnexae.
1. Small amount of free fluid in the cul-de-sac and adnexae.
2. Otherwise normal sonography of the uterus and ovaries. No
additional adnexal masses.
It sounds like you could have had a cyst that no longer appears on ultrasound that ruptured. Many cysts become fluid filled and disperse the fluid upon rupture, which then has to be reabsorbed. That causes pain and swelling/distention until it resolves itself. How long depends on how much needs to be reabsorbed but it could be longer than you would like (weeks). Other than checking for infection, which I assume the doctor would have done, and treating for the pain, you had good results from that test.
