bearing down feeling

Hope someone out there can help to answer this question for me. I had a full hysterectomy (abdo), cervix remaining 4 1/2 years ago. Three years ago this October I went back to hospital to have removed a mass the size of a orange, non cancerous. The mass I was told was due to residual ovary and lesions/scar tissue.

Almost three years down the track I am starting to get that old feeling back again, very low down in my abdomen, a very heavy bearing down feeling and constipation (sorry) can be a problem too. Also am feelilng quite sickly in the stomach, I suppose you would say like you would feel just before your cycle would come along. I am also off my food, which is not like me at all.

Stress is a major contributor to my health issues I know, work related.

Does anyone else suffer from these symptons at all?

Look forward to your replies.

to Hyster Sisters ((((Kez)))) While I'm delighted that you've found us, I'm sorry that it's because you're dealing with all these issues

The symptoms you are describing could be caused by a number of things ranging for hormonal in nature, to being caused by a gastro-intestinal condition. That's why it would be a good idea to have a doctor appraise the situation.

One thing that has helped both me and my doctor identify possible patterns and triggers has been to journal my symptoms. This not only includes tracking when the problems occurs, but also includes noting anything that could help identifying the source of the problem.

Sending lots of s your way. Please do be sure to keep us posted.

bearing down feeling

first of all, are you having to take hormone pills due to removal of your ovaries??? if so , do you really need them???
the reason i ask is that i had my ovaries removed 2 yrs ago and after a while i quit taking my hormone pills b/c i had no more symptoms of menopause, but i was in so much pain
i felt the way you do, i have very bad constipation and that bearing down feeling......i feel like i'm in labor sometimes and that something's gonna fall out

well come to find out, they left pieces of ovary due to scars and adhesions, endo, etc........that's why i don't need my hrp anymore, i'm making my own again
anyway, i am set up for exploratory surgery to have it all removed

hope i helped a little
take care and keep us posted
