Gotta question

Hey girls I have a question but it may sound
I havent had my Hyster as of yet, but it may be soon, and I have alot of pain in my right side on my right ovarie and I already know I have a fibroid on my uterus in the back and my right ovarie is right up against my uterus. My stomach swells really bad at times,
could any of the problems I have be the cause of the swelling.

Thanks and big 's to you all.

Gotta question

Hi livin!
I sure don't have an answer for this one...good question for your doctor though. I know I had a lot of bloating (swelling????) before my hyst as part of my monthly cycle. Interestingly, even though I still have my ovaries and notice a cycle, bloating is not one of the problems that I have anymore.....Please check with your doctor though, just to make sure this is not a symptom of some other problem. Good luck to you!

Hi Si

Thanks for your reply to my post. The swelling is really bad, it may just be bloating but it is more often than just when I am on my period. I will take your advice and ask my doctor about it.
Thanks again, and a Big to you. Oh and by the way my name is Misty and that is what you can call me... at least that is what my friends and sisters call me. thanks for the advice, i appreciate it.
livinforthelord is just my user name on the site. have a good night.

Gotta question

Hi Misty,

I had similar symtoms to yours, got extremely bloated before my period with an enormous belly. I had fibroids and a massive uterus (740gm, the normal is 50gm!). I had one fibroid pressing on my bladder and the uterus was pressing on my bowel!

Now two weeks post op my belly is a normal size apart from a wee bit of swelling just above the incision at the end of the day. I had a lot of leg pain pre op, that has all gone and I feel wonderful.

The surgery is the best thing I could have done, I hope all the liws feel as good as I do post op.

Best wishes and
