Pain on oppersite side of having an ovary removed post op 4 weeks

Posted , 4 users are following.

4 weeks ago I had my right hand ovary removed along with a 32 cm cyst attached to it. 4 weeks post op I am getting pains on the oppersite side of me to where the ovary was removed. Sometimes stabbing pains. I had a 4 week post op appointment yesterday and told my consultant who did not seem concerned but I am not convinced. Anyone else had this?

    Hello! I hope you’ll start to feel better soon. I say this on here all the time and I’m gonna say it to you also - doctors are a service. If you’re telling your doctor something that is concerning you, speak up and demand answers. Most of the time if you ask for something you will get it. Ask for a pelvic ultrasound so see if anything is up. If your doctor won’t comply, see a different doctor. If you’re not happy with your service, speak up or leave! This is your body and your health. If you feel something is wrong, do something. 

    Best of luck to you!

      Thanks the only problem is that my consultant is going to be annual leave for two weeks and I am a private health care patient. I suppose if things get worse I could go to my gp and request a scan but he would prob be back by then

    Hi there, i had an ovary with a mass removed as well. Its ten days post op and im feeling a burning stabbing pain. I called doctor and i guess its normal.  I had left ovary and mass removed thru the right side laparoscopic. Three holes. The one big hole where they pulled the ovary and mass thru hurts the most. A little above it is where it burns and feels stabbing. I guess its muscles they had to cut open bring it thru. Also some nerve tissue. All will heal but the burning and stabbing is definitely part of that. I was freaking out that something was wrong. But i have asked so many people and found that all that have had a lap surgery with a bigger hole to remove whatever tend to have this same feelings . Hope mine doesnt last too much longer as im going on a cruse in 25 days. Hope u feel better
