I had my right ovary/tube & a dermoid cyst removed from my right side. On my left side I only had the tube removed, so my ovary is still intact. The surgery was laparoscopic. This past weekend, I was on a short road trip, but in a truck, so it was rather bouncy. Plus, it's high off the ground, so I have to step up quite a bit to get in. Since then, I have been having pain on my left side--the side that still has the ovary. Could this just be from overdoing it, or perhaps from all of the jostling in the truck? It's not constant pain--certain positions/movements bring it on--like when I'm stretched out in bed or twisting to get something. I'm also tender now, as I went to a walk-in care clinic yesterday to have it checked out, and the doctor was pushing on the sore areas (looking for a hernia or other issues.) He couldn't find anything--thinks it may be muscle related. I'd have to have testing/imaging to pursure this further.
Has anyone else dealt with any pain/tenderness at this point during recovery? Before this trip I was at my 4 week mark and starting to finally feel good and normal again. I had just finished my first period (which was very heavy/painful, due to D & C for polyps that was done during the time of surgery.) That 4 week mark was the first time I finally felt pain-free. I'm worried and depressed and scared of more testing. I'm also worried because I only have the one ovary left and am scared there's something wrong.
