ovarian pain question

I've read a lot of the posts already on ovarian pain a few years after a hysterectomy, but I haven't quite seen this addressed, so I was wondering if someone else had gone through this:

I've had SEVERE abdominal pain (lower right) in early february and just a couple of days ago. I've had abdominal and pelvic CTs plus a pelvic ultrasound and a colonoscopy. Everything comes out normal. My gyn says there are no signs of cysts and my ovaries are small. But given the fact that my "attacks" (that's sure what they feel like when they're happening) have occurred every other month, it sounds like it could be my ovaries. But with everything looking normal, I'm not sure where to go.

I'm scheduled for some more gastro tests, but I still wonder if it's my ovaries.

So I was wondering if anyone had had "normal" looking ovaries who managed to have doctors come up with some kind of diagnosis that nonetheless related to the ovaries.

Well, except that mine is on the left and every 6 weeks instead of every other month... I'm right there with you.

My ovaries do not appear abnormal on ultrasound. However, ovulation has become very painful and never was prior to the hyst. My endo specialist says this often happens in endo patients whose ovaries are not taken at the time of the hyst.

You'll see in my signature what I've been trying. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you.

First let me say that I am sorry you are having pain issues after your hyst.. It could be that you have adhesions around your ovaries and when you ovulate (on that one side), this is what is causing the pain. Unfortunately, adhesions do not show up on CT, MRI, or u/s. Something to consider and speak with your doc about. I know it happened to me after my hyst and right ovary removed...the left ovary was covered in adhesions causing the pain
