findings after surgery

Hi there, im just wondering if anyone has had surgery and had Dr find other problems than what u were aware of beforehand. I have a cyst on right ovary and 2 masses on my right side of uterus and find it hard to believe that those can be causing pain in front under my ribs, and lowerp back pain and sometimes can feel pain in my leg and right buttock (sorry,lol). Im just worried this surgery isn't what I need or he is going to find something else. Wasn't sure what others have found out after there's. Anybody have these issues and felt better after your surgery? I go on for a TAH on nov 15, and im 37.

Re: findings after surgery

I had a large cyst on my left ovary, as well as uterine fibroides. I actually had no pain, and was asymptomatic.

I was told in recovery that all masses were benign. My family was told right after my surgery while I was still out.

Talk to your doctor about the pain. They need to know what type of pain you are experiencing and where. It might be caused by the masses, and maybe not.

Hugs to you....

Re: findings after surgery

I suffered lower back pain for months before I was diagnosed with fibroids. Once they were removed, the back pain went away.

My uterus has since produced a large assortment of new fibroids - large and small - and I once again have back pain - and hip, leg and joint pain.

So, yes, they can cause pain in places you never imagined.

Re: findings after surgery

I had horrible back pain, which during my time of the month would cause horrible leg pains... and pain on my right side for the past year that they could never figure out what was causing it. Turns out my right ovary was fused to the front of my uterus, which was fused to an old c-section scar. Since my LAVH only 13 days ago all those old pains are gone! YAY!!! The doctor was shocked by everything being fused together as that never showed up on US, Cat Scans or MRI's... he's convinced (so am I) that's what caused all my pain.

Re: findings after surgery

I had adenomyosis which caused a lot of back pain and leg pain on top of the horrible abdomenal pain. When I had the surgery, the back pain went away. A lot of the aches and pains I had have gone away at the same time.

During the surgery they also discovered that I had pelvic congestion syndrome which I had no idea was going on and had to go home and google it to really figure out what it was. My doctor said he knew why I was in pain. That was refreshing.

Re: findings after surgery

The scans I had before my TAH really couldn't even see the number of fibroids I had since a huge one was blocking so many others. I had awful pains under my ribs, lower back, right hip, right groin shooting down my inner thigh. During one my many exams my Dr found that the fibroids were pushing on my rectum and constricting it so we assumed that much of my pain was from the fibroids causing constipation and gas cramps further up in my intestines. It's taken a couple of months for my body to get used to being able to do things normally again, and I still have days that are more uncomfortable than others, but my hip/groin pain, lower back pain, under rib pain are all gone. I still have to watch the constipation very carefully as my body re-trains itself, but I am SO much better. I really wasn't sure the surgery could help areas of pain that were so far apart on my body, but it has!

Re: findings after surgery

I had horrid back pain down into my legs. I also had stabbing pains in my sides and lower tummy. Cramps all over too. Knew that it was prob Adenomyosis but what we really did not know was how fused with tissues, everything was inside. It took my surgeon a long time to get my uterus off of my back. It was fully fused to my back and my uterus was fused to it.

and then...
I had a MRI 3 days post op because of fever and found out that I have huge Gallstones....That could be most of my nausea. So now I have an apt with another surgeon to have that looked at. My Doc wanted me to wait for my 6 week check up and then go. I may need another surgery... I will find out at the end of Nov...

Re: findings after surgery

so sorry to hear what all of you have been through!!! I suffered this last year almost to date with massive pain all through my left abdomen and back and also left hip! Doc suggested exploratory lap and found lots of adhesion around my uterus and bladder and bowel which she removed. When my period came again so did all my pain!! We decided on a total hysterectomy on month later and I am now 4 weeks out from my surgery. NO PAIN!! Yay! at my checkup yesterday though she said my pathology was normal and negative. She says her best assumption is that I was suffering with pelvic congestion syndrome and that my pain is gone because all those veins and ateries are cuaterized now. ?? Whatever! I am just thankful to be pain free!! I had also developed a VERY spastic colon the last few months due to all the abdominal and pelvic pain I was having and this past week I noticed it is also diminished! So in answer to your questions... yes, there can be things detected during and after surgery. As long as it is all for the better, just be thankful! I know I am! good luck and hugs!
