pelvic pressure

I'm wondering if any one is experiencing the same pain I'm having. I have heavy pressure in my pelvic. The doc believes it's coming from my uterus. I have an enlarged uterus but the doc can't find any other reason for the pain and pressure. The pressure started about 9 months ago but it was only a week or so before my period but now I have the pressure/pain all the time. I like to tell people that I feel like I'm carry a bowling ball in my pelvic area. Sometimes it's a 2 pound ball other times it's a 10 pound ball. Walking and standing seem to make it worse but it even hurts when I'm sitting. I'm scheduled for surgery on July 16. The doc is planning on doing a TVH. I'm wondering if this is going to help. Also at the same time the pressure/pain started I started having 15-20 day long periods. They're not heavy, just long lasting.

Re: pelvic pressure

Hi me-714

It's no fun experiencing that kind of pressure all the time

I'm curious to know what tests your doctor has done to determine what is going on with your uterus. A hysterectomy is a major surgery, so I would want to know what condition(s) it is an effort to cure before agreeing to have one.

There are never any guarantees that a hysterectomy will take care of our problems, so I encourage you to get a second (or even third or fourth) opinion if necessary. Even if all the doctors agree that a hysterectomy is the best option for you, hearing it explained in several different ways might be very reassuring and informative for you.
