    Well, it could be scar tissue, or adhesions.  Did you have lymph nodes removed?  Also, you could have some intestinal issues going on.  Do you have any evidence of that?

    Because your pain is so disabling, perhaps it would be best if you went to your GP or GYN. 

    Best of luck to you!  Please let me know how you get on!

    Hi, I had a total hysterectomy 4 years ago and starting get this but on my right hand side..over the last few months for several hours a day...incredibly painful...as lynda said below my doctor has said it could be scar tissue but no clear diagnosis to date...I did notice that when I stopped taking HRT last year 2 days after the pain went...when I went back on 3 months later the pains immediately came back...so I'm now left thinking one of the hormones is stimulating internal tissue in some way...estrogen is included in my pack and I was told and read that you don't need this hormone if you've had womb removed.

    Ps so I'm going back to doc and menopause specialist to see if there is truth to the estrogen matter and to try and find out what's happening...it's such a major op for a woman that DR felt it made most sense to be scar tissue. Hope you manage to find some helpful advice for your situation.
