Ovarian Pain. When To Be Concerned?

Postby tung » Sat Apr 15, 2017 10:21 am

I am 29 yrs old.
I had a hysterectomy in 2007 for severe dysplasia.
Ever since, my right ovary has had constant pain.
It is worse when I am ovulating. I am finally at my ropes end from going circles with doctors.
I have an appt with dr. #4 next week.
My current doctor has ordered ultrasounds many times to look into the issue and small masses have been found but never explored.
He says they are functional cysts and the pain could be from scaring from my surgery. After many yearly visits and the question "why did we do surgery again?" (by the doctor) I decided it was time for a new dr.
I am hoping #4 will help me out.
Other symptoms I have been dealing with are:

**Bloated and gassy feeling: This is relatively new (meaning in the past year). My stomach always feels bloated and it is exptremely unconfortable to wear fitting clothes. Some pains feel like a sharp knife stabbing me, Only last a second but happens more often now.

**Extremely Fatigued: I feel like I cant get enough rest. Having a hard time focusing and staying awake.
I used to be so energetic and outgoing. Now I have zero energy.

**Bladder hurts: I feel like I have an infection all of the time but everything comes out ok.
Bladder hurts when full.
Sometimes it never has a chance to get full before the urge hits.
Constantly running to the bathroom.

**Constant pressure in my lower abdomen.

**Pain during sex. This is almost always.

**Gaining weight but my activity level is up and my calories are down. :S

**Anxiety: my chest always feel tight and sometimes hurts when I breath. Very odd.
Not much to drive this.

**Constant mild headaches: I used to never have headaches.

**Cramping: like menstration but I have no uterus.

**Hurts to ride in a vehicle for long periods of time.
My lower right pelvic area starts aching really bad.

**Lower back pain, like it is my kidney.

I am at a loss.
Has anyone ever delt with this before? My family history is rich with serious female problems.

Ovarian Pain. When To Be Concerned?

Hi There

I have seen this occur on several instances. I would suggest getting in touch with NHS Direct on 111. It doesn;t sound like much help but they are great on the phone and offer impartial, helpful advice. These case are different for everyone.

Let me know how you get on

I had my uterus removed about three years ago and sometimes I get that ache in the ovary and my doctor told me it was from scaring.
Eventually it went away.

Since your digestive system is not even remotely connected with your reproductive system, have you considered you may have a food allergy?

I've learned to look at other factors than what the doctors focus on, like food, environment, etc.

I'm glad you are going for a second opinion.
Make sure you do not have ovarian cancer.
Get that checked.
