should I be concerned

I am looking for some suggestions and opinions. I don't know if I should be concerned or not. I had a TAH,BSO on 8/20/04 and even before surgery I had a constant pain on my left side but figured it was from the egg sized cyst in my overy. My recovery has been good but my left side always hurts and the last few days I am back to pain meds and doing nothing and it still hurts. Is this just part of the healing process. I really don't want to call the doc or go in if I don't have to.

Call the Dr. - That's what he/she is there for. It's really better to ask now than to be sorry later! I know how hard it can be! I've called a number of times and every time I have a little battle with myself!

Call - it will give peace of mind and you'll be gald you did!!

Let us know what he says!!

Please call your dr. I did many times when I had concerns. You know your body and you know when something doesn't feel right. Your dr. will be glad to answer your questions, if not, get rid of him!
I am 4 months post op and hadn't talked to my dr. since he discharged me July 14th. I have had abdominal pain and gurgling every since. I finally called him from work and he called me back within a few hours. He was more than glad to talk to me and give me advice. He ordered me a cat scan, then his assistant called me back in a few days with the results. My dr. called me yesterday to suggest I schedule a appt. with a post abdominal pain, adhesion surgeon. He also said to keep him informed of my happenings. They do care about us, at least mine does.

You will feel much relieved once you talk to him.
Take care

You are not alone. I am still having "ovarian" type pains even though they're gone. I've read other posts here too, of ladies complaining of phantom type pains where their ovaries were. So long as they aren't any worse than they were pre-op, I'm waiting to see if mine will diminish as time goes on. Would you say yours are phantom pains? Did you call your dr?

I hope you are more comfortable soon.

sistabeth I don't know if its phantom pain or not. I do know that I had a lot of bowel problems before surgery and constant pain on the left side and it seems that that the pain is still in the same place. I never feel anything on the right side except a twinge now and then. I also still so not have a bm without some kind of help no matter how much water I drink or ruffage I eat.
