Have you my symptons

As some of you will already know, I am going for Hyst on June 6th.
I have noticed by reading all the posts that most of you have very specific reasons for your surgury.
I am worried because I have had investigation and all is clear. I really wish I had a name for my pain.

My Gyn knows my pain is constant and he saw me on a day when I could barely walk with the pain. He knows that this pain is not normal and together with my other symptoms, I am a definate Hyst patient, I trust this man, he said my problem is due to a thickening of the lining of the Uterus but will not be sure of this until after op. I am a little scared of what else he might find. I have had a D & C, but this did not help. I do have heavy periods but I can cope with these it is the constant lower back pain, and the falling sensation at times.

While my Gyn was away I got the worst pain and had to attend Hosp. and another Gyn the internal she gave me really, really hurt, for a woman she made me feel like I was making this up.
She told me to get healthy and I would be fine. I am perfectly healthy, perhaps about 25 lbs over weight but not huge.

My swelly belly is huge, My Gyn said that this other gyn may have pushed back the uterus with the internal, that I was probably prolapsing, and that was the falling sensation. He knows I am a good patient and agrees that I am healthy.

I know I am all over the place with this post but I am very confused.

Any thoughts from My HS, do any of you have similar pain we wont even discuss the emotional trips daily.

Have you my symptons

I have uterine prolapse and have a constant backache. That may very well be what you had. I have the worst cramps and swelling for the first 3 days of my period. Not sure if I have endo or not I guess will find out when he does surgery. I just know the uterus has to go. Take care and feel free to ask me any questions. I go for my pre op this morning..
Take care and try not to worry..

Not in your head!!

S to you. I'm sorry you had such a bad experience with that second DR.

I have the same symptoms except my uterus is not prolapsed. I had a D&C, hysteroscopy and lap for biopsies on 4/17. My DR found advanced endometriosis, enlarged uterus (to about 12 weeks) and a walnut-sized benign tumor on the back side of my uterus trying to grow in. The enlarged uterus causes a pressure sensation. It's also putting pressure on my bladder so I have a hard time holding it. The endo causes intense low back pain and terrible abdominal cramping before and during my cycle which by the way is heavy with heavy clotting. The tumor (because of it size) is beginning to give me pain on my right side. I just assumed this was normal for getting older. No other DR had ever opted to do testing. This is my 3rd GYN. Consequently, I need to schedule a trip to the castle within the next 6 mo.

Your DR knows that you are not well. This is not all in your head. It is not normal to live in pain. Don't worry you'll soon be feeling much better and pain free.

rkeller thank you

I sure hope my uterus is enlarged because my swelly belly is obscene and feels like it is about to explode at times.
The pressure & lower back pain is cronic, but at least now my head is clear. I never thought I would be happy to have a physcial illness but I am so happy it is not in my head.

Let us know how things work out for you.
