Have you been checked out for Pelvis Inflammatory Disease? It seems they would have caught something that serious at your 6 weeks checkup after your baby. When I was pregnant with my third child 4 years ago, she ripped the cardalage in my pubic bone and I could barely walk from the time I was about 6 months pregnant to a few months after she was born. I still ache from it at times but nothing like back then. That could have possibly happened with you. You should discuss it with your doctor.
Hi, thank you for replying but no I have not yet been checked out for that. Were starting by checking the simple stuff.. starting off by getting a pap smear. After that we'll see how that goes. I've told my doctor everything I feel but she looks baffled and doesnt have a clue to what it could be. I've searched for different diseases and infections and the one I am most terrified is Pelvic Inflammatory disease... I really doubt it could be the pubic bone. The pain wasn't that bad when I first gave birth. it would hurt here and then not very often but lately it is an everyday thing. I might just head over to the ER maybe they'll do something. Thank you much (:
Hope you are feeling better. If I were you, I would ask my doctor to send me off to get an ultrasound. Its a good idea t start with a pap test but an ultrasound will show if there are any abnormalities within your pelvic area. Take care of yourself and all the best to you.
hi sweetie im sorry to hear about all your pain,and i know exactly what u are feeling,because i suffer from this pain everyday,i have what is called Endometriosis. I got diagnosis just 5 months ago after suffering for 16 yrs with it. Do u have painful periods as well? i bet you think its normal to,well its not. but dont worry hun There is help and i am on a support group called :powerful sisters fighting endometrosis. on facebook come take a look and see im sure you will find it to be helpful. I got surgery and have more pain now,but im looking into more natural remedys that are helping, I would def talk with ur gyno (specialist)or have some one refer you, it took me so long to finally know!! i hope it doesnt take that long for you *hugs*--kari
btw if it is endo..it more than likely wont show up on ultrasound unless its a stage 3 or 4..but stage one can be just as or more painful its just harder to detect
Wow really? Thank you so much I'll talk to my doctor about it. And yes I do have very painful periods. I did get an ultrasound though and everything was normal. But I do hope they can give me an answer soon and get it solved. Thank you sooo much!
Your very welcome! I hope you get the help u need soon,and if not (because it can be a long a difficult road),and they will want to start u on birth control pills first to manage ur pain,to see if that will help you before surgery. so come find me on facebook and i will add u to my group.
