I had a hysterictomy around 2001, it was a complete hysterictomy. However, now I am having severe.left side pain. When I told my doctor, she acted like I made it up or something, she made the statement that there is nothing on my left side. Does anyone know what can be causing this and what I can do to ease the pain? I sometimes have pain in my lower abdomin and lower back, but it is not severe and is not all the time, however the pain in my left side is always there, sometimes more severe than others but always their.

Are you on HRT? If your not it could be bowel related.

However if you are on HRT it could be active endo.

Try and go to your local pharmacist and buy the stronger paracetamol or take ibuprofen. You go to the doctors and do a wee sample just to check you haven't got a kidney infection or your bladder could be inflamed. If your doctor said your fine then i'm sure she knows it isn't cancer but have a blood test just in case.

There is mass in my pancreas but when they put me sleep to do byopsy, I quit breathing so they had to abort. I was told that it could be that I do not go regularly and constantly have blockage and have been taking probiotics but they have not helped. I am also on regular doses of ibuprophen.

Could be scar tissue from previous surgery.

I know scar tissue gave me a pulling kind of pain.

Most likely not to easy to determine from an exam .
