had a hyster. because of the size......and also just before my period say two weeks it pulsates really bad and yes I have a small fibroid......anyone here have this?????
What is with all the pulsating and pain?????
HI. I also had pulsating on the right side 2 weeks ago! I am having a hysterectomy on 8/19 with uterus, and one ovary for sure and not sure about the other(big decision!!!) I don't know what the pulsating is but mine was right before my period and it lasted for about 5 hours! I thought for sure something was happening with my ovary and I would have to have emergency hyster!!! But it stopped during the night! I also get the aches at the top of my leg! I am sure it is from the size of my uterus and the dermoid cyst on the ovary is large! I mentioned it to the Dr and she said sometimes they twist or get squished and it will pulsate!
As for the pulsating, I read that sometimes its almost like the fibroid is trying push its way out! It actualy made sence to me, because what I felt was like contractions instead of pulsating.
I would start to experience these contractions about 3 days before my period and it would continue almost to the middle of it, sometimes the whole time!
Boy did I just remind myself why I had my surgery!!!!!
I needed the hyster partly because of the fibroids that enlarged my uterus to something like 26 week size. There was, I know now, incredible pressure on my bladder and low back, causing a lot of nerve pain and problems. I also had large ovarian cysts and grossly enlarged Fallopian tubes.
The pulsating pain is familiar to me, too. I was bleeding so heavily and abnormally that I couldn't tell you how it related to when a period would start or stop, just that it was there on a regular basis.
