CHRONIC back pain, to hyst or not to hyst

NOt to get repetitive, but am wanting info on chronic back pain sufferers and a connectionwith uterine issues. I am doing mass reseach, and finding such a big connection. I have a large folder now of women with back pain who have had great reduction in pain after a hyst. Or none at all. If you have any info to add please do so, I am considering a hyst basically for back pain more than my uterine problems. Boy I hope, afterall the research and followups, that I am making the right decison. None of the tests I have done show any problems in spine, etc. MRI clean. I have always felt they sorta...follow hormones. I am finding it is not as I thot. Any info ????

If you have a tipped uterus and it swells for any reason, then you will experience back pain.

I had a backache for over a year. I thought my age and job were just catching up with me. I never connected my backache to my constant long, heavy periods. It wasn`t until I began passing huge clots and having much flooding that I complained to my Dr. about a period that started one March and never stopped.

All my tests showed negative for any conditions. Ultrasound, blood work, several uterine biopsies...all negative. My Dr was thinking I had torn the uterine wall or perhaps it was ulcerated due to the clots. My symptoms, however, were consistant with menopause as well.

I had a D and C. It showed uterine cancer and the rest is history, as they say. The cancer had swollen my tipped uterus and it was pressing on a back nerve. One of the first things I commented on after surgery was that my backache was gone.

I never mentioned my backache to my Dr. before surgery as I did not realize the connection. After surgery when I mentioned it was gone she told me I should have told her earlier. Backaches are often a symptom of uterine swelling due to many conditions.

So please pass the word! Tell your Dr. about persistant backaches, especially ones that never seem to be relieved.

Thanks for your research. I hope your condition can be corrected by other means, but do tell your Dr. about back pain.

Wishing you a speedy resolution!
