Pain in abdomen's lower left quadrant
marife11 posted:
I feel pain in my abdomen's lower left quadrant. I don't have ovaries, cervix, fallopian tubes anymore. What could be the problem? I am afraid to go under knife again. Please help.

Sounds more GI in nature; issues such as colon polyps (very common by the way) could be the cause. Nothing says you need to go under the knife but it would be a good idea to make an appointment with a Gastroenterologist to get this checked out.

It sounds to me like possible adhesions, given the fact that you've had abdominal surgery before.

If your surgery was for endometriosis, it could be endometriosis symptoms returning since there's no cure for endo. Adhesions are also a possibility. And of course GI problems could be the cause.

I had the same after after my hsterectamy, it turned out the pain all along was diver's
Anon_6061 responded:
I've had intermittent abdominal pain since my hysterectomy too. The cause hasn't been determined and I'm certainly not going under the knife unless it becomes a necessity. Even diagnostic testing has been traumatic.

pruschetta - By "diver's" I assume you mean diverticulosis or diverticulitis? Did a colonoscopy diagnose it? My symptoms don't correlate to the typical diverticula offending foods (nuts and seeds) so I doubt that's the cause of mine.
