Severe pelvic pain

HI, I can relate to the doubling over feeling of stabbing pain. I too am not sure whats going on. I am waiting to have a colonoscopy to see if its colon related. I have had one doctor tell me I have IBS and another dissagree and diagnosed IC. I think either or both are possible. I also have weakness on the right side and doctors think thats back related from pelvic tilt. I sure hope to find a cause. Its scary when the intense pain happens, its difficult to decide what to do when you are out. I am wondering if sitting and eating can make the colon and/or bladder (in their new homes with in the pelvis with out a large uterus to rest on) become agitated.
Please let us know what your doctor says. I hope you get and answer and a solution! C.Anne

I hope you find the relief and the answers you need! (SOON!!!) Just out of curiousity - do you still have your gallbladder? I know this may seem odd- but I never had problems with my colon until I had my gallbladder removed (and right before then when I started having problems with it). And now if I don't watch when/how I eat you'd truly think I was in active labor! (NO EXAGERATION) The pain is SO intense! It lasts for about 30 minutes or so, and then will eventually subside. They say it's just that my body can no longer handle food the same way, so my colon cramps....lovely. It's always great fun when I'm out on the town with my hubby!

Take care!

Went for the ultrsound this afternoon. Tech said she did not see any masses but did notice a lot of gas! Maybe you were right afterall! Go for the IVP tomorrow. As an aside, I think I may be leaking urine??? So, the blood in the urine and now the leaking may be pinting more to a urinary thing afterall!

That would be great if all it turns out to be is gas! Is freaky that she found that since I said that it could be let's try this---they find nothing but gas, give you some simethicone and follow up in 2 weeks.
(Let's see if that works )
Once you are feeling better after the IVP, let me know what they find out....if I am completely right with my diagnosis and treatment plan, I will post my new psychic web site...
Good luck sweetie!

Severe pelvic pain

Hi Cortney,

Just getting back to you on the ? about my gall bladder. I still have mine, but the description you have about feeling like you're in labor is right on. I feel like I can't eat anything right now. I am going to try to see my dr. today, I had such bad pains, and even if they are just gas, I need to figure out how to prevent them. I get stabbing pains, they make it difficult to even walk to a nearby bathroom. I keep wondering if my colon is twisted up or something. I have been taking an herbal colon cleanse supplement, just lots of fiber. I think I am going to stop and try to get an opinion of the cause of these pains. Last night I was awoken by pain on my left side, couldn't sleep. I am very very tired, Gosh I need a feel good day. ! I hope all goes well with you. Take care Cortney and sisters! C.Anne

Pelvic Pain

Hi Ladies..I am also new to this site. and this is my story...........
I went looking for women who could give some insite to my situation as it is some of the same as you all have described. I am 32and had a tubal in 1995. After several years of painful periods and increasing back and cramping pain, going to Dr.s who only wanted to put me on birth control, I finally got a dr to listen to me..In May 2004 I had my first exploratoral Lap that showed I had a very thick uterus that was disfunctional and was also heavy, inverted, lying on my back.
We decided to do a vaginal hyst with only removing my uterus.
During the surgery, the dr found cysts on my ovaries and removed them. After surgery i began to bleed. When i left 3 days later, the bleeding had slowed, but not stopped completely. Other than that I was ok.
I began to feel worse as the days went on, still bleeding some so on the following Mon I was back in the office, ultrasound showed I was bleeding into my abd, I was back in surgery in 3 hours. My right ovary had ruptured and was bleeding out.
This was repaired and I spent another 3 days in the hospital.
To sum up the past few months, I had to go back to surgery 5 weeks later for acute pelvic pain and what I felt was a tearing evertime I moved. I had adhesions attached to my abdominal wall, colon, and everything else that were causing great pain. These were removed, but the pain continued after this surgery.
I had injections in the office into my stomach thinking it was nerve related. 4 weeks from the last surgery, I again was taken back to surgery (#4) when another ultrasound was done and showed I had a very large cyst on my right ovary again and my left one was not visible..This was when my ovaries were taken. The dr went back in and found endometroisis had attached to both ovaries fully overgrowing both of them, also all along my pelvic wall and abdomen.
Since all of this was done, I still am experiencing pain daily. I have had 2 procedures by specialists in the office trying to deaden the nerves and burn off granulated tissues and a piece of one of my tubes that was left behind. I am now in Physical Therapy for Pelvic Rehabilitation....I have only been 3 times, but have not seen any improvement yet. They tell me it is the muscles around the pelvic wall that is causing these pains, but sometimes I am not so sure.
There are days when I feel like it may just be me?? Hope this may help someone with things they may be going thru.
ANY insite to this would be GREATLY APPRECIATED as I feel I am at my witts end!

Wow. What an experience. I'm so sorry to hear that you are still feeling so lousy! I hope you can find some comfort in the support of the sisters here. We are quite a group!

Are you on meds in addition to the rehab? Or does your pain break-through the meds? Are you still being treated by a specialist? Is this a Pain Management doctor?

Take care!

Thanks Courtney...Yes, on meds for nerve endings and also for pain...I feel like I am a walking medicine cabinet! :-)
They really don't help. But, I take them anyway.
