Pain after 1 year

I've had some strange problems since my TAH last year. Extra fluid in my abdomen, pain during sex, spotting. Everything always checks out normal with ultrasound, exams, etc. Anybody else having anything similar?

Pain after 1 year

Hi there,
I also had TAH in Sept 06 and had fluid until recently and still have pain
during sex (hardly have had since hurts and UTIs), no spotting. Mostly I've just had numerous UTIs and just posted a cry for help. Glad to hear everything checked out with your ultrasounds, etc. At my 9 month check up
my Gyn said it takes about a year to come back from a TAH (I had a benign
ovarian tumor) but I honestly don't remember her saying it took about a year before! Don't think I would have overlooked that comment.

Pain after 1 year

I'm almost 10 weeks post op, I had like a week that I was practically pain free, but now I'm experiencing some pain again especially in the left and right side of my waist and also in the area of my back.
It's very frustrating, because when you finally get some relief you automatically think that everything is OK and when you begin experiencing some of the pain again it can overwhelm you, like in my case.
Let's keep our head high, knowing that this will not be for ever, and let's thank God for all He has done for us!

TAH, kept ovaries

constant pain!!

I am having the same pain and I am 8 months post op for TAH/BSO. I am very frustrated and uncomfortable having to deal with this pain every day. Part of me thinks it is still part of the healing process and the other part thinks there are other things going on. The problem I find is there may not be just one thing happening, there are different types of pain...there is the sharp pain near where my right ovary used to be( may be scar tissue) other side is fine...then there is the dull ache that wakes me up at night that is usually right beneath the scar kind of a deep pain (feels like it is my bladder?) then there is this new crampy pain that is happening after sex...I finally called the doctor and they are starting off with some urine tests to rule out any kind of UTI or bladder infection then we will go from there. Any input from anyone else who has gone through this would be helpful.
And any advice about the bloating and swelling that never stomach is so swollen as the day goes on especially right before bed....would any dietary changes help??
Continued recovery to all.....let's all try to stay hopeful!!

Hi Hockeynut,
Posted above and had similar pains as you besides the UTIs that I was
having regularly which led to other problems. Point is, it really wasn't until
my 9 month checkup that I actually began to feel liking I was getting back
to normal. Swelly belly did finally go down, pulling near where ovarian
tumor removed along with ovary ceased, tenderness around vertical
abdominal scar ceased. I was becoming a happy camper, except for the
UTIs... I really was shocked when my Dr said it takes about a year to
recover from an TAH - like I posted above - I would have remembered that!
Best to all of you,

Pain after 1 year

I'm sorry to hear anyone is going through the same frustration I am, but also relieved that I'm not alone. So I've had spotting and a weird upper abdominal pain for 4 days. My doctor says it could be gall bladder because of location, but that that should not cause bleeding, especially vaginally. Of course, they can't see me until Monday, which just gives me enough time to stew about everything. I've been to emergency 3 times in the last year for strange pains. Everything always checks out fine. I had intense sharp pain in my abdomen -- the drs thought it was gas! I had very low pelvic pain, dull, ultrasound was clear. Pain during sex, eveything checks out normal. Now this. Do you ever really recover? Are things still shifting around in there? I'm a fit, healthy person with a good diet and no smoking/drinking habits. I should feel good!
