Strange feeling in left lower abdomen

Hi everyone, first wanted to say this is a wonderful informative and helpful site. Congratulations to those who intiated it. I am new here but have been reading a lot for the last few weeks. I am likely having a radical hysterectomy in the fall, the date is not set but the decision has been made with my gynochologist and family doctor. I have had heavy, lengthy and frequent periods for a while now, but now i am also anemic my doctor figures due to iron deficiency caused by blood loss. I am 46 years old, i have had two children by cesection there are now 10 and 11 yrs old.
I have had very strange symptoms lately in my left lower abdomen. I thought this was due to weight gain since i am not as active as before due to arthritis, i gained 40 lbs in a year and a half..... i hate this since ive always been under 125 to 130, now at 180....... so i figured this new symptom may be 'fat' bouncing around........ this sounds rediculous, i know but, hey i dont know what it could be,,,, feels like when i was pregnant...... its loose, numb inside, cant feel anything from pressing from outside to determine if its a mass of any kind..... but, when i jump, walk down stairs....etc, i feel a strange bouncing of something inside, feels like something is in there...... but i have no medical evidence of this........ just the feeliing......... i know i have scar tissue from my previous c sections....... and wondered if the extra fat ive put on...... has made the numb sensation i obtained since my surgeries .... more enhanced..... this probably sounds really stupid..... it probably is rediculous, but. hey what do i have to lose..... anyone have an experience like this..............?????? never the less im due for surgery in a few months as soon as i get the date...... im afraid they will open me up and find large mass of tumor or god forbid cancer...... but to date test do not incate cancer..... i had abnormal cells in uterous but the ultrasound did not indicate any cancer......i dont recall my doctor telling me that i had large fibroid tumors either though...... so what gives....... my hysterctomy will be mainly for blood loss and anemia and painful ovulation etc....... and pms....... it make s me wonder if im being a baby and shouldnt bother with the surgery,,,, but sure looking forward to not feeling so darn sick and tired and moody, weepy, in pain and aaal....... i have a hard time finding the posts on here that i read before and want to go back to and cant find anymore...... bye for now , ill try to check for replys to this post, but as i said i find it hard to find ..............any suggestionsss on how to do thisllllllllll

Hi Trendy,

Welcome to Hyster Sisters!!

First - please call your doctor and tell him about what you have just told us - we are not doctors here and cannot give medical advice. Anything that seems unusual or abnormal should always be reported to your doctor, since he knows you and your body best.

I'll try to explain how to set your options so that you will receive notifications whenever there is a reply to a post that you have either started, or replied to.

Go into your control panel and then into your options. Make sure that you have checked that you want "e-mail notifications" whenever someone replies to a thread that you have participated in.

You can also get notifications to a thread that you have not participated in by scrolling below the last post on the thread and clicking onto "Receive Updates To This Thread".

Be sure to let us know what you find out after you have seen your doctor. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
