Help!!!!!! "Phantom Period Pain"

Its been 2 years since my TAH & BSO

Can anyone tell me if it is likely that the pains in my lower back and tummy are anything to worry about.

This has been gradually getting worse, and really feels like I am about to have a heavy period, this I know sounds bizarre, but does anyone else out there feel that they have "phantom period pain"

Please help?

Help!!!!!! "Phantom Period Pain"

Jan, my ovaries now hurt when they should be ovulating, but your pain sounds like you need to have that checked out!

It's been 2 years since your surgery....please go to the doc and see what's going on. You'll feel better just to go even if there is such a thing as "phantom period pain." Let us know what happens.

phantom period pain

I have had that feeling twice since my surgery 1 1/2 yrs ago. Both times it has been a bladder infection. Please go get checked out to be sure what it is.

Bladder infection

Thanks for that.

Was it something that started gradually. Dont mean to sound crude (what with being British and all) But did you notice a change in your urine, or was it just the physical pain that made you go to the docs??

I dont seem to have noticed any change in colour or aything, however I do seem to wee an awful lot.

phantom period pain

Yes, mine did come on gradually, first just a twinge or two then crampy feeling and lower back ache. I didn't notice a change in color, but seemed a liitle cloudy. sometimes. I also felt like I needed to "wee" frequently. and afterwards I would feel achy in bladder area.
I am dealing with that now, backache, front cramps, etc. went to the Dr.- been on antibotics for 2 days.
Hope this helpd.

an interesting subject

I find this phantom pain an interesting topic. I have a friend who lost her leg last year. She complains often of phantom leg pain and takes medication for it. It a body part is removed, then it seems logical phanton pain could happen anywhere in the body.

Phantom Period Pain

Those are my thoughts, it makes perfect sense to me.

Thanks for you reply.

phantom pain

Phantom pain is nothing new to me, as my father has had both hands removed mid forearm. It could be that, but I never had any pain like that until the infection, so it is something that warrants being checked out.
I do hope that it is nothing.
