10 mths post op problem?

Hi ladies

I am 10 months post op today (Dec4th) TAH/BSO, that has been filled with complications and a very difficult recovery.
I'm wondering if anyone out there can tell me if they have encountered a similar concern.
I was goofing around with one of the hockey teams I coach, and well I was sitting down with my back against the wall, reached up, grabbed the bars and lifted my body weight off the bench...(kids thought I couldn't do it..lol). Anyhow when I lifted myself...I felt/heard this popping sound coming from my lower left side...it hurt like a son of a gun. Well that was on Sunday it's now Thursday and I am back to needing a large amount of pain killers (Tylenol #3's) and it almost feels like that old endo pain...right about where my left ovary would have been.
I have been using heat and pain killers waiting for some relief but getting none. I know everyone is going to suggest calling the Dr. and I probably should, but I was kind of curious if anyone else can relate or provide any insight.
I could not have possibly done any damage at 10 mths out? I have a friend who is worried I may have some bleeding internally....but I can't see that being possible? After my hyst. I suffered massive internal bleeding and was rushed back to the OR and opened up again, I also required 2 blood transfusions 3 units the first time (Feb 5) two units the second time on Feb 10th.
I contracted a number of infections including and ecoli that has damaged my bladder and kidneys ( have had 2 surgeries and 2 cystoscopes since June for that)..it took 11 and a half weeks for my incision to close...bottom line..I am sick to death of Dr.s and I would do anything not to have to go see one..my GYN is over an hr and half away, and my GP and I no longer see eye to eye.
Sorry to go on so long, but I would really appreciate it if anyone had a similar instance they could share with me.

Thanks so much

If I were you I would call your immediately. If you heard a popping noise and are feeling enough pain for pain meds - your best bet is a check up and a doctor call.

Hope all is okay - but it is better to call and be safe...than sorry later. Let us know.

You need to call the doctor. You've been in pain now since Sunday and it's not going away. If you don't want to see your own doctor, please go to the ER. Please let us know what the doctor tell you.

ER, Get going!

Go to the ER for a check up! If you don't and you have done some damage you may risk longer time with doctors the longer you delay at home. Now that won't be much fun will it? Take care of your body, it's the one one you get!
