Question: overy pain

 hurting - Tue Oct 25, 2005 1:16 pm

HI I am 23 years old. I had a partial hystrectomy 4 months ago due to endometriosis.
I still have bad pain in my overies. The doctor said they looked great when he did my hystrectomy. I went to a gastroenterologist and he said everything was fine other then being a little constipated. I don't know whats causing the pain. I think my endometriosis is back and on my overies my doctor said that is very rare. What do you think it could be? The doctors have quit giving me pain med. for it because they can't find out whats wrong and nothing else works the pain is constant. Its always there. I also have some nausea and leg pain and a clear discharge.

User avatar Hi hurting,
Endometriosis may cause adhesions to other abdominal structures which include the intestines and ovaries. An abdominal and transvaginal ultrasound should assist identifying if this is the source of pain. Inquire with your physician about this diagnostic study. As for the constipation, this also causes abdominal pain and it is suggested that increases in fiber intake and recommended intake of water will help eliminate this problem.
