Pulling feeling when moving leg

Has anyone had a pulling feeling in your middle abdomen when you move your leg around? Mine has been like that on one side since the surgery. That leg also doesn't have as much mobility as the other. My doctor keeps ignoring it.
Anyone have any ideas?

You are not alone!

Hi! I am so glad to know that there are other people out there with post op probs. I am also having a pulling sensation in my lower right groin area when I move my leg in certain directions. I have to be VERY careful when I get up or I am sure that I will pull myself apart. My doctor did a pelvic ultrasound to rule out a hernia or abcess. It came back OK & she said to wait a week & see how it does. If problem persists she will want to do a CT scan. Sorry to hear that your Doc seems to be ignoring your symptom. I just found this page & never considered adhesions. The other thing that my doctor is considering is a pulled ligament. My surgery was on May 2, full cut, removed uterus & right tube. When was your surgery? I hope that your problem is resolved soon.

Pulling feeling when moving leg

Your situation sounds just like mine! I got an order today from the doctor for a CT scan to be set up next week. I had an ultrasound that didn't show anything. I've never had a CT scan. Does anyone know what they do? I hope it's not claustrophobic. I keep telling everyone there is something not right and they think I'm a hypochondriac. You know when something is wrong with your body!

Pulling feeling

Hi Janet!

I think that I can give you some comfort in the fact that the CT scan will not be a claustrophobic experience. The radiologist here told me that they would just examine that area & it isn't like being rolled into that tube type thing. You lay on the table & they roll the machine around your pelvic area. It does get pretty close to you, but won't be there for very long. I would be VERY interested to know how you make out. I will see my Doc next Wednesday, & as I said before, I canceled my CT scan after the ultrasound showed that most things were OK. Don't know exactly what they can & can't see with the CT scan. I opted to wait for a bit hoping that it is just a pulled ligament & will heal itself over time. I know that I have to get up a certain way to baby that area & of course last night I tried to pop up off the couch & repulled the stupid thing. Not as bad as before, but it HURTS again. I know how you feel when you think everyone thinks you are a hypochondriac. Everyone around me has been supportive, especially by husband, & my doctor knows that there is something wrong. That doesn't mean that I don't feel like a whiney baby. I am used to being very active, and this whole thing doesn't sit very well with me. I guess this is just part of what we have to go through to earn our crown. Again, I would like to know how things go for you & I will think good thoughts for you. Good luck! When is your CT scan scheduled for?

Pulling feeling when moving leg

Do any of you ladies know what the docs do with the ligaments that they cut from our uterus? Dont they re-attach them to either the bladder or vagina for support? If so- could this be the "ligament-pulling" feeling that some of us have in our legs? Am glad you posted this- because I have it too- in my right leg. Its not bad..just something that I think about before getting out of bed..or standing up. Thanks.
Also- I had a CT scan on my neck after a car accident. Its a big donut type of machine-not a tube like with MRI. You lay on the table and, in my case..they put these velcro straps on my legs to keep me still..and then this big donut thing moved into place around my head. Then it whirrs around and around with flashing red lights..and makes rumbling noises. Its not as bad as it sounds and it only takes about 5 minutes. If you want -you can take a headset of music with you and just close your eyes...that way you can "tune it out" until its over.
