Hi Ladies, First I'd like to extend positive, healing energy to you all. I wish you all the best through these hard times.
In Aug 2015 I received a CT for kidney stone pain as well as pain upon urination. My report stated a 3mm kidney stone ( I have passed 3 in the last 10 years and am 36 years old) as well as moderate free fluid in the pelvis with a probable 2.4cm ovarian cyst. They recommend I have an Abdominal/Pelvic Ultrasound 2 weeks later.
Ironically a few days after the CT I started to have constant lower right pelvic pain. It wasn't excruciating, but extremely uncomfortable. When I received both Ultrasounds I let the tech know of my pain and she said that it appears that an Ovarian Cyst burst (hence the fluid).
My report stated (2 weeks later) no fluid in pelvis, 1.6cm hemorrhagic ovarian cyst, 3mm kidney stone, benign appearing splenic cyst and a geographic fatty infiltrate or benign hemangioma of the liver.
I ended up having that pain until November, and then it just stopped one day. I didn't think I needed to go back for more tests since the report looked ok, and my pain was gone..until now.
About 6 weeks ago that exact pain came back, the first few weeks it was hear and there. But the last 4 weeks it's been constant. The last 2 weeks it seems to have gotten worse. Especially when I'm driving, or sitting and at night. It never goes away, the pain just intensifies.
My symptoms are lower right pelvic pain, that radiates sometimes to my right inner thigh, "numbing" pain localized in the ovarian region, constant dull sharp pain, but not shooting in the lower right pelvic area, Feeling full after a small amount of food, tired, lack of motivation, lower right back pain (but i have that everyday due to my facet joint arthropathy) and every few days I feel so bloated that if I relax I look very pregnant. I have extremely heavy periods that last 6 days, 4 out of 6 days is big clots and I go through about 4 Super plus tampons.
I have to wait 2 more weeks to see my Dr. but I'm starting to get concerned. I'm very in touch with my body and know something is not right. It almost sometimes feels like something is in there. I'm afraid to press down hard on it, cause it's very uncomfortable having my thigh/leg against the region or anything for that matter putting pressure on the area. I'm also concerned that aim not really feeling all the possible pain, (I have a mild slow release pain killer I take twice daily) I haven't gone to the ER for my pain is not excruciating, hsving kidney stones I know what a 10 on the pain scale is!
Well with that said....I'm sorry for the long message, but I'm getting scared and would love some advice. Could the cyst that shrunk on my last Ultrasound stuck around? Could it of gotten bigger, or twisting?
If anyone has a story similar to mine PLEASE let me know! Does the numbing pain sound familiar? Did your pain last a long time? If anyone has any questions for me or if your needing advice I'm here for you all...In good Health Kristen
