I wrote to you in Nov about some problems I had been experiencing. I spent 2 weeks in hospital in Sept with localised peritonitis, with the doctors saying I'd had a perforated ulcer that had sealed itself and was treated with IV antibiotics.
Anyway I won't go into all the details of that, but I was referred to a gynacologist who didn't think there were any abnormalities in that area apart from a small cyst on my left ovary. However, subsequent scans started to show up a mass on my right side which no-one was sure what it was.
The consultant decided that surgery had finally become necessary to see what the mass was.
I had surgery on the 17th Jan and ended up having a sub-total hysterectomy and a bilateral salphingo oopherectomy, which shocked me somewhat as I'd been told there were no abnormalities in this area. Also my bowels were in a mess and had to be sorted out. the surgeon said it must have been a very bad infection I'd had in Sept. as it had caused such damage. He also said there was no sign of an ulcer, but still couldn't locate the source of the infection.
What I really would like to know is it likely that the infection could have caused the damage to my ovaries, uterus, cervix etc.
I would appreciate your comments on this.
