 lol26 - Thu Sep 10, 2009 6:12 pm

Hi, i am 10 week post op hysterectomy. I kept my ovaries. For the last two weeks i have severe right side lower abdomen pain. when pressing in it feels like there is a lump underneath the skin. I am severely swollen. I also have had bad breast pain. I have been feeling very naushes. I don't feel one bit well. Please advise me on what you think could be causing this. I am at my wits end. Thanks in advance.

User avatar Hello,
This may or may not be related to your hysterectomy since there are so many organs in the abdomen - GI, urinary, ovaries, appendix, gall bladder, etc. in addition to surgical complications such as infection, abscess, adhesions. You must see your doctor for an exam and evaluation of the pain to find the right diagnosis.

Best wishes.

Just a quick note to say i am just recovering from surgery in hospital at the moment, i collopased on sat morning last and was rushed to hospital where on sun morning i had surgery to remove a 8cm cyst on my right ovary, they also took both ovaries on this occasion, i hope that this should be the end of the road with this long term issue i have had, since i am only 26 i can get on with living my life, who knows now i might even be able to lead a normal life. Thanks a million for replying to my question and i hope you have everythin good that life brings happen to you.
