pressure and discomfort in lower back and rectum

This is is sort of embarrassing to ask, but I figured someone else has probably asked the same question at one time. I am 4 weeks post op from and LSH (cervix and one ovary remain). For the past week I have felt a lot of pressure and discomfort in my lower back and rectum. I am not having BM problems so it can't be that. It definitely gets worse if I sit or stand to long. Any ideas?

Re: pressure and discomfort in lower back and rectum

I'm not sure, but given your LSH, you probably have the mesh that is attached to your lower spine or tailbone. I often have some odd pulling at my tailbone, and I have to be very careful to sit very upright in a chair, (like I really should anyway - for good posture), or it gets mildly painful.

I'd recommend asking your dr about this. My dr explained exactly what he was doing for my procedure, so I wasn't surprised when I had those odd feelings.

Mine doesn't happen when I stand too long though, only if I sit too long!Good luck!
