Anyone else ? Period after ovarian cyst and right oophorectomy - UNBEARABLY PAINFUL.

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hey folks !

I'm about a month post op from my surgery and just got my period today and the pain is the definition of the word excruciating. I took a combination of acetaminophen and motrin and the pain is still not going away completely. The pain keeps radiating down into my legs and I'm getting some chills as well. 

I've always had painful periods but nothing even remotely like this type of pain.

Did anyone else have a similar experience after their surgery?

Thank you so much !

    Sounds like the cyst has twisted and is pressing against a nerve. I would go to emergency immediately.

      I actually just had my surgery a couple weeks ago and they couldn't save the ovary. Very bad cyst.

      I am worried about my nerves though as you brought it up since the period is so painful. I see my GYN really soon.

      Thanks !
