I'm a 53 year old woman, and 7 weeks ago I had laproscopic surgery to remove a tennis ball sized cyst on my left ovary, as well as the ovary itself and fallopian tube. The doctor said the cyst was so large that it had adhered itself to the side of my uterus and the other side as well. She assured me after 2 weeks I could go back to work and would be 100% normal after 3 weeks. That has not been the case... I was able to go to work just fine, and really, the pain I'm experiencing is not intolerable. I've had pain off and on in the area where the cyst was removed starting around week 3 (I was feeling pretty good before that). I of course called my doctor, and sent in to see her and she basically said I should not be having any pain. I must say that she has never been the type of doctor or answers any of my questions. Her bed side manner is horrible to say the least. when I told her I had pain, she said, "what do you want me to do about it?" WHAT? Anyway, she did schedule me for a CT scan but actually my pain then started to get better before I had the scan, so I cancelled the scan (with the ability to reschedule it at any time). WELL, I thought all was pretty good but today, exactly 7 weeks after the surgery, I am having a burning pain where the cyst was removed. Before then it felt like kinda little needles once in a while but now this burning crap. And it's not going away! From all I've read on this forum by you wonderful ladies (really, this forum has been INVALUABLE), it sounds like I have adhesions perhaps? From what I've read adhesions don't show up on CT scans and there's really nothing they can do short of another surgery to "remove" the adhesion. My question is this - have any of you had adhesions, and does my symptoms sound like adhesions? I don't want to call my doctor again because she never once mentioned adhesions and I know what she'll say (which is basically that this is all in my head)... I just find it so weird that the pain I was having before this wasn't all that bad and seemed like normal healing. But now this burning pain that's not subsiding! ugh! Help!
