I thought I would share my story. I'm 43 years old and 4 months ago had a full hysterectomy due to extensive endometriosis, cysts, fibroids etc. Now 4 months on I rushed to a&e Friday night with severe lower back pain which was worse than labour (Ive had 2 children). After being given painkillers and told I had blood in my urine the nurse told me my bloods were fine and all they found on the ct scan was a cyst on my kidney she told me I had a severe back spasm. So I went home took painkillers for 2 days but by Monday decided I wasn't happy I know what back pain is and this was too intense and radiated round my left hand side.  I visited my gp who said my bloods were all indicating infection and I still as blood in my urine so gave me strong antibiotics for a kidney infection but my urine sample then came back today with no bugs. Now I have a ultrasound scan on Tuesday to see what's going on and I'm terrified I have bladder cancer after googling online (I know bad thing to do but I suffer with anxiety and can't help but worry). I don't understand how the antibiotics have got rid of the pain but there was no bugs detected in urine just blood. The doctor aid she wants to investigate the cyst so I thought maybe the body is making cysts elsewhere now seeing as all my other bits are gone. I don't know I'm so confused. Also my stomach is very bloated. Any ideas anyone????? Thanks julie.x
