Ovarian-like pains, bloating, tenderness, groin pain??

Hi Ladies,

I posted a similar question on Post Surgery board, but now have more information and new symptoms that are perplexing me.

My TAH was November 2002, but I kept both ovaries. Things have been fine and dandy, except for just last week I started having sharp pains in my pelvic area that reminded me of the pains I had many ears ago before discovering a ruptured ovarian cyst that required full surgical laparotomy to repair.

Annnnnnnnyway..........I went to the ER on Thursday and had an exam and discussion. Basically since the pains were off and on for only 2 days (sometimes stopping me in my tracks, and sometimes I feel pretty good)... the doc 'guessed' I was ovulating and releasing fluids in my pelvic cavity that were causing pains. He RX'd ibuprofen and a Sonogram IF I felt the need or IF the pains got worse, to come back to the ER.

Well, this is 4 + days later and I had two episodes of severe pain over the weekend, plus I am bloating up like crazy! I feel all tender and weird down there, with my upper thigh/groin area hurting and generalized tenderness. The shooting pains seem to happen on both sides of my pelvic area too,.... so that seems strange to me.

The ER doc also ran a CA-125 which came back '11' today. The nurse said that was within normal... so I am perplexed as to what to do!

I feel like something IS going on, over and above just ovulating pains!

Any ideas or feedback?

Thanks for all the help

Hi Cory:

Well hon, we had our hyst's within days of each other.

I started having pain somewhat similar to what you describe in April. Went on continuous BCPs and it was controlled for several months and then whammo ... back again in August.

Just underwent diagnostic laparoscopy and had adhesions removed. Had one large one that was causing round ligament problems and some running from my left ovary to the side wall.

Amazing how painful that could be at times and at other times I was fine.

PM me if you like.

Hope you get an answer soon!!!

Dear ((((Cori)))) I'm so sorry you're having such a hard time right now

The symptoms you're describing would warrant another trip to the ER, at least in my book: they were symply too intense and too severe to symply discard as the symptoms due to ovulation.

Sending lots and lots of s your way and hoping that you get some answers (and relief) real soon.
