Pain in Lower Abdomen

Hello, I am trying to decide if I'm having ovarian pain or something else. A few weeks ago, I had the same ovulation pain I've had for years. I'm still having it post hysterectomy, which means the ovaries are working. (My hysterectomy was April 2007) The pain went away, but I stayed sore. Yesterday, I woke up with strong pain in my left side and it worked its way to the right side as well through out the day. I was in tears a few times from the pain. I ate some Fiber One cereal the night before with 9 grams of fiber. I thought that could be the problem, but it's day 2 and the pain is still there and worses when I move around. I'm just trying to decide which doctor to call, my gyn or my primary care doctor. Any advice?

(((nancmac))) here is a link on the various types of pelvic pain . Hopefully it will help you to narrow down the type of pain you are having. I think that you need to call your dr if the pain persists, your dr may need to do a ultrasound to see if it is a ovarian cyst. Either dr should be able to diagnose your pain. I usually go to my gyn when I have pain in the pelvic area. I would go to the one that you can get in to the quickest if the pain persists. Keep us posted on what you find out. I hope your feeling better soon.
Best wishes and lots of ,

Thanks, I called my gyn this afternoon and have an ultrasound scheduled for noon tomorrow. They didn't hesitate and said since the pain was below my belly button, I should have an ultrasound. I'll see a nurse practioner afterwards. It's calmed, but still there. Thanks for the reply.
