throbbing burning pelvic pain...


I have been experiencing a throbbing burning pelvic pain when I move about or sit in a car for any length of time. I must reallly limit my activities, even walking. I drove my car, a 5-speed yesterday, and I've been in agony since.

I've been told that I have pelvic floor dysfuntion by the urologist but the physical therapist didn't buy it. I see another GYN next week who specializes in these issues. When the pain acts up I am also inflammed (which can be seen) in the vaginal/rectal areas. It radiates downward. I had these problems before my surgery although I have more pelvic burning now. I am 11 weeks post op, TVH. Has anyone had any of these problems? Will it take more time? I actually feel OK if I sit around all day, don't move much and don't drive a car. Unfortunately, I can't do this for much longer. Any thoughts?

I can relate to you. I have been having that problem for a couple of weeks now. It is very nasty. At times it feels like there is somethning stuck there. Ugh. I am waiting to see an Urologyst. My Gyn has suggested I do that. I am on some meds in the mean time. I hope that you can get some answers. Have you tried looking in the Bladder Matters Forum? It has helped me. Good luck. Take care.

Hi lilypad, I don't have what you're experiencing. I'm so sorry that you're going through this. I'll bump this question up and maybe someone will see it this weekend. I sure hope you find some answers soon. Sounds just dreadful to live with!
Best wishes,

Hi ((((Lily))) I'm so sorry you're in so much pain

While I do not have experience with this type of pain, I do have some experience with Pelvic Therapy, for incontinence issues. While, for me, there was no pain involved with the therapy, I've read that others were not as fortunate. However, I have also read that it tends to be effective for a lot of women and may be worth your while for you to continue in this direction.

One thing I did want to mention is that I had posterior repairs at the same time as my hyst and that sitting was a very uncomfortable position. Even after several weeks, and long after I had returned to work, I would try and limit the amount of sitting I did.

I do agree that you may find some help in the Bladder Matters message board and wish you the best of luck in your quest for answers.

throbbing burning pelvic pain...


I'm a bit over 11 wks myself and I've been having problems with vaginal swelling also. I had a prolapsed uterus and all was going well till ' bout 3 wks ago.

Dr. first thought ,and I did too ,that it was the start of a yeast infection---treated for that. Diflucan didn't do it.....tried some Mycolog II cream and a steriod....still have swelling. Right now we're treating for a WHOPPER of a UTI. I didn't present the " standard" symptoms...but of course I'd been lucky all my life and had never had one till now.

So I'm on 2 anti-bios, Pyridium and feel a bit better and the swelling is better....not completely gone...but looks better! For me this all cranked up after I was cleared for sex also ( that's on hold for now!)...and I have could we think it's linked to those 2 problems and maybe a reaction I had to one of the creams the Dr gave me to use.

Good luck...I know how bad it feels.

Thanks for the replies. I've started physical therapy for pelvic floor dysfunction and the woman I'm working with is wonderful. (The burning I'm experiencing is muscle strain and spasming which can be resolved with soft exercise. The inflammation is the result of swelling, impeded blood flow and congestion. When your pelvic muscles tighten your pelvic organs sit higher in the pelvis than what is considered normal. The key is to relax the muscles to stop the spasming and to get them back to where they belong. I meet with my therapist once per week and I'm on a schedule twice per day at home. I also do relaxation twice per day. Hope this helps someone. It took me 2 years to get to this point.

other possibilities

I had the burning and redness and pain at 4 months post op. The gyno did a culture and I had both yeast and bacterial infections.

So I was treated first for one thing, then the other. And no sex during the whole treatment. I have been free of that pain since.

It can be a lot of things, all I can suggest is don't assume you have one thing by the symptoms someone else has. Get it thoroughly checked out. If the gyn hadn't cultured it we would not have found the bacterial infection-the yeast one was the most bothersome with the most symptoms.

Here is to the best healing and recovery we all deserve!
