Five months postop and in pain again

Ok this has been the hardest thing I have ever gone though I had my hysterectomy Oct 7,2002 and in Jan I started having pain
and they ran test to see what was cousing it and it is a growth
on my right overy and it really is very painful , the doctor I was sent to by my pcp found it and now he wants to wait two more months to see if it is going to grow but I just want the pain and all the pain meds to go away and too have a normal life again pain free . I called my regular gyno and she is worried and want to see me so I'm going she also has seen the test results and I hope she will do something other than tell me she will seen me two months . All I did was cry when he told me what he'd found and then when he told me he would not do anything for two month I cried again I need some advise , I feel I am doing the right thing about calling reg gyno ,the other dr seems to not understand what I'm going though I feel it because he is not a gyno or he's just a man LOL I hope because he's not a gyno but both could be true any advise is very welcome thank for listening

Thanks Tammy

I'm sorry you are having to go thru more pain & problems, my heart goes out to you I had a mass, of unknown origin, show up on an U/S when I was about 12 weeks post-op The mass was located on my right Ovary along with multiple blood-filled cysts. My Gyn scheduled an RSO via Lap to remove both the Ovary & mass. It turned out to be Scar Tissue that was adherring the Ovary to my vaginal cuff I have seen other ((Sisters)) here experience this as well. Here is some info on similiar problems post-op:

Ovary and Adnexal Cysts and Masses:

Can this Ovarian Mass be Malignant?

Central pelvic mass:

I know how disheartening all this can be ep to have this surgery to help & only to have more pain & problems. I have been dealing with severe pain & complications from my Hyst for 3 years..the toll it can take on your physical & emotional well-being is soo hard. Here is some info that has helped me in dealing with all of mine..maybe it can be of some help to you as well...

I definitely feel for you sweetie! We had our hysts at about the same time and I have not been pain free since.

At 9 weeks post op I had an US for continued left-sided pain, even though I had a LSO with the TAH. The US showed multiple cysts on my remaining ovary -- the right one. I was put on the bc pill for this -- not by my gyn as she was on medical leave but by one of her collegues. I was not scheduled for a repeat US or even a follow-up appointment. I did talk to my gyn a few weeks after that and she felt my continued pain was more due to adhesions than the cysts. I tend to agree with that as the pain is a tugging type pain which is getting worse as time goes on. Problem is, my insurance ended on March 1st so, I'm going to pretty much have to learn to live with it.

Here is my humble advice -- you do not deserve to be in pain -- push the issue until you get the answers you need!! Please let us know how things go.
