Some advice please

Hi Helen

I still have one ovary, (my right one, and I have been having an increase in right sided pain, but I'm in denial about that!), my hyst was for endo, my gyn told me there was nothing more he could do for me (this was back in Feb.) and sent me to the pain clinic. Now they've done basically all they can do for me, and that's why I'm kind of at a loss as to what to do or where to go now. I know I should really go and see my GP and sort of start over I guess. I always feel like I'm bothering the doctors and taking up their precious time with my silly questions. They sometimes make me feel I'm trying to make something out of nothing, so I hesitate to go to the doctor. The last time I saw my GP, and she gave me another script for Dicetel, she told me to also increase my fibre and see if that helped. So I'm working on that, and wanted to give it a little time to see if it really made a difference. I didn't tell her about the right sided pain, like I said, I'm in denial, and not ready to deal with that. I know that's probably foolish, so call me a fool! I also think it may be bowel related as well - it's very low (seems too low to be ovary related).

Your not a fool, Just tierd of drs., like the rest of us! But we have to take care of ourselfs as, no one else will. I have had problems with constapation for as long as I can remember. We think that had a lot to do with my prolapses'. The IBS and Div. started after my TAH, which I heard is common due to the stress of the surgery itself. I mean, I would be in distress to if I were my bowels to. Since they took them out and packed them during the surgery!

We pay for the dr. time and it's our health at stake, so don't give up!

Have You Seen Your GYN?

Hey there. Just read your post and the first thought I have is that if you haven't already, you should probably check in with the gynecologist who performed your surgery. I'm thinking you might have an adhesion problem because I've read that they can cause bowel symptoms.

The GYN seems like a good bet because he or she is most likely to be sympathetic to your problem, as opposed to someone who might look at it as an unrelated thing. Maybe it's NOT related to your hyst, but who knows?

The pain you are describing is similar to the pains I've felt from adhesions too. Keep in mind that that sort of thing does NOT usually show up on x-rays or anything. If you've had radiology procedures, that doesn't rule out scar tissue.

Good luck to you!
