Hi all... so frustrated... approximately 12 weeks ago I started with a constant nagging pain in my lower left pelvic area. It is constant and nothing relieves it, no painkillers or going to the toilet. At first my doc thought it was constipation and prescribed Lactulose - so I went along with it to try and clear pain & bowels, but still no relief. I was then sent for pelvic scan, my doc phoned me next day sounding quite concerned saying I needed appt with Gynecologist quite urgent as I had Fibroids, a 16mm cyst & thickening of the uterine wall which was showing a shadow. So for the next 10 days I was panicking and not sleeping.. anyway I went yesterday and he said that my ovaries look normal, cysts can come and go so nothing to worry about, and the thickening was at high end of scale but nothing to worry about... I mean wtf?? Why the urgency from my GP? I asked him about my constant pain that doesn't let up and he thinks it's from previous surgery from 2 years ago when I had mesh repair of a hernia (I've also had gallbladder removed this year too). I went back to my GP surgery same day but only a junior doc on duty but he was pretty clueless and gave me a laxative - feel like crying with this pain... it's now radiating down my front thigh and giving me cramps in my bottom and pain across my shoulders. I've been toilet no problem but still in pain. Going to bed every night at 7pm with a hot water bottle is no fun at all especially when it's been going on 10+ weeks. Hoping someone can shed some light on this please.. .. I am back at my docs this week to request further investigation.... thank you x
