I have right ovary pain constantly now, It started off and on, for about 1yr. Now the pain is constant, has been for about 4 months.. It is controlling my life, when I work, when I do things with my family and my husband and I can't have sex without me being in so much pain afterwards I don't do anything for about a day & a half!!
I have had both vaginal and topical ultrasounds done. It showed I had 4 fibroid tumors, and my left ovary and uterus are being pulled to the left but they found no reason for it.. both my ovaries are normal in size and there isn't a tumor on my right ovary so there should be no reason for pain.. I have had blood test, urine test and paps done, all come back normal.. I have had 2 C-sections, a tubal ligation & multiple surgerys done on my abdomen due to an accident in 1989. My last small bowel obstruction surgery was done in 1999.. The Dr. says its been too long for it to be scar tissue causing the problems & won't even look at that reason.
I am desperate for help!! This is ruining my life! I can hardly get out of bed some mornings the pain is so intolerable.. Vibration, sitting wrong, sex, going up & down stairs, & walking all cause me severe pain..
I suggest setting up an appointment with your OB/GYN or getting a second opinion since your physician was not able to find anything abnormal. CT scan or even MRI may be necessary if nothing comes up in the ultrasound.
Thanks for writing to the forum!
Your symptoms and the finding of uterus pulled to one side go more in favor of abdominal adhesions.
“Abdominal surgery is the most frequent cause of abdominal adhesions. Almost everyone who undergoes abdominal surgery develops adhesions; however, the risk is greater after operations on the lower abdomen and pelvis, including bowel and gynecological surgeries. Adhesions can become larger and tighter as time passes, causing problems years after surgery.”
“Although most abdominal adhesions go unnoticed, the most common symptom is chronic abdominal or pelvic pain. The pain often mimics that of other conditions, including appendicitis, endometriosis, and diverticulitis.” Adhesions can cause intestinal obstruction too.
“No tests are available to diagnose adhesions, and adhesions cannot be seen through imaging techniques such as x rays or ultrasound. Most adhesions are found during exploratory surgery. An intestinal obstruction, however, can be seen through abdominal x rays, barium contrast studies—also called a lower GI series—and computerized tomography.”
“Surgery is currently the only way to break adhesions that cause pain, intestinal obstruction, or fertility problems. More surgery, however, carries the risk of additional adhesions and is avoided when possible.”
Please discuss this with your doctor. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
