Questions almost 1 year post TAH/LSO

I know you all already think I'm crazy so, what will it hurt to ask one more silly question??? I feel like I have something in my abdomen that shouldn't be there. It sort of feels like a stick running from my groin to ribcage poking both. Also, left side of my tummy still sticks out a good inch further than on the left. Could this be fluid? scar tissue? adhesions? endo? or something totally un-gyn-related? It's not painful, just extremely annoying and I don't think it should be like that this far post.

I am waiting for my MA to be processed then I plan to ask my GP to refer me back to the Gyn so we can at least discuss this. However, I'm not sure how long of a wait I will have and I'd like to at least have an idea of what it might be. Anyone??

Heh Bills...

Don't worry about the questions... I hope someone has an idea for you.

I can tell you that sometimes I feel like I have a stick poking up under my ribs on the left side... it turns out to be a spasm or myofascial trigger point in the diaphragm muscle and the oblique muscle (I think the ones that attach to the ribs are the internal obliques.)... It is referring from the muscles down around my pelvis as far as we can figure out. I haven't had any "sticks" in my groin though... but there are lots of muscles down there too.
You had mentioned that your muscles look different on the left side too... my rectis abds (the 6 pack muscles) also stick out farther on my left side many times.

I don't really have any idea except what I mentioned above. I hope it doesn't take too long to get into the doctor.

Let us know what he/she has to say.
