Pain, Fullness in Pelvic Area

I have a question.....

I had my hysterectomy on 5/8/03, everything was removed except for my left ovary because I was only 33 and we thought it was best to leave it. Things have been wonderful up until mid October when I began to have fullness & a lump on my right side with intermitent pain. I went to have my pelvic exam done and my dr immediately mentioned it to me. I said I had noticed it too but thought it was okay. I went for an trans ultrasound yesterday and from last night on the pain has become horrible. I had my hysterectomy due to multiple ovarian cysts, endo & admeno. This pain seems very familar to my ovarian cysts, trouble walking, pain pills, heating pad, back pain, etc. Is it possible that I have it again? I thought this was over with?!!!?

I also had a small amount (1 cm) of bloody tissue that appeared about 8 days ago. I thought this was strange since I don't have anything left except for the one ovary. Am I losing my mind? The lump feels fairly large & tender and here's a question if my right ovary was removed why do I have a lump on my right side instead of my left if it's a cyst??

If anyone has any insight on this I would love it.

Hi Carmen,
What did the ultrasound show??? Yes, it is wierd to have pain on the right side, if that ovary is gone. How could you have a cyst there? Maybe it is adhesions??? I am 15 months post-op and dealing with lot of abdominal pain. I am going to a new Dr in two weeks. As far as the bleeding, that could just be from the ultrasound. My last internal caused me to spot some, and that freaked me out a bit, as I have nothing left, TAH/BSO. Please call you DR office, asked about the ultrasound and tell him of the bleeding.

Fullness in Pelvic Area

Well the ultrasound showed a complex cystic mass involving my left ovary (that's all I have left). Crazy thing is it's 6.22" x 1.96" x 8.937"!!! I am scheduled for an MRI now on Sat, Nov 13th. My Dr is very concerned because of the size.
The ultrasound report says it's possibly a cystadenoma, cyst adenocarcinoma, endometrioma or a very large hemorrahgic cyst. In any case, they are trying to figure out what we are dealing with and then they will make plans to take it out. They told me most likely they will take the left ovary out this time too. By the way, the tissue/bleeding occured before the ultrasound. I am beginning to think it's the old endometriosis rearing it's ugly head again. I really thought I was done with this but maybe it's the price I am paying for trying to keep 1 of my ovaries.

Any insight anyone has will be much appreciated. Thanks!

Don't feel bad about trying to save one of your ovaries. I tried to save mine too, unfortunately it only lasted 3 weeks. Did you mention to your doc about the bloody tissue you passed? Do you still have a cervix?
Sorry to hear about another cyst and that surgery is in the future. At least you will know what to expect this time.
please let us know how you are doing...take care and good luck!
