So I am waiting for a hysterectomy due to large fibroids pressing on my bowel and back, but as I come up to a period (I'm on HRT that has a monthly bleed - much like the pill) I get this contant nagging ache on my right hand side lower abdomen - it's in the area where my appendix and right ovary would have been - but are not there as they were removed 20 years ago. If I take strong pain killers it goes - but as soon as it wears off the nagging pain starts again. If I lie on that side the pain becomes much more intense. It kind of wears off after I bleed. Anyone else experienced this? I'm wondering if as the uterus enlarges coming up for a bleed is it pressing on something else?. Thankfully I am at doctors tomorrow - so I will ask.
