Upper abdomen pain with uterus fibroids?

Posted , 15 users are following.

Last week I got the results of my sonogram - my uterus is 3 times the size of a healthy uterus and full of fibroids.  I am done having kids so I am having a hysterectomy in a month (that's when it fits in my schedule).  My question is this - has anyone experienced UPPER abdomen bloating and pain as well as the lower abdomen bloating and pain?  Please share if you have!  My entire abdomen is bloated and painful and I'm wondering if the swollen uterus is to blame or if I have another abdomenal problem too.  :-(

    I am due to see my doctor soon to find out what's going on with me. I get upper and lower bloating and I've been bleeding for almost 25 days now. I've never had that before. I'm glad I found a forum of women going through the same thing. Ovarian cancer runs very heavy in my family and I don't plan on having kids so I'm ready for my last ovary to come out! My first one hemorrhaged into my fallopian tube and I nearly died.

    My exam is on my birthday! Surely no bad news can be delivered on my birthday.....that's how I look at it.

Over past 2 months my pelvic pressure has now become rectal pressure and my upper abdomen is so distended I look pregnant - especially after I eat which must be a very small meal . I actually feel lumps in my lower abdomen and am scheduled for a

    CT scan this week and I'm praying it's nothing more serious . I have even had low grade fevers recently which I read is also common . You are not alone !!!

    Hi. I had my uterus lining burnt in April 2016 for fibroids and now i am waiting to have hysterectomy because instead of inside they are now all on the outside of my uterus along my ligements between uterus and ovaries. I have a dr app Apr 10 2017 so hoping it wont take to long for op. I have swellon and cronic pain everyday in my legs lower back and lower region. Its like having bad period cramps ALL THE TIME. My iron and B12 is low because of them too..

    Good luck in your recovery.
