I started experiencing right side pelvic pain at the end of Oct. I put if off but finally it was so bad I ended up in the ER on Nov 14. After ct scan and ultrasound I was told that the right ovary was covered in cysts and to follow up with a ObGyn which I did. She was a new doctor for me as I had just changed insurances. At our meeting she explained that my right fallopian tube was dilated and I did have a cyst. She said I could treat this with Naproxen for 6 months and see if I got relief or I could consider to surgery. I chose surgery as I've already had hysterectomy in 2009 due to severe anemia so I decided to have fallopian tubes and ovary removed since I didn't need them. One week before surgery the pain was so intense it was affecting my sleep and work after contacting obgyn she told me that I shouldn't be in that much pain that it's affecting my days and told me to go back to er because I must have something else going on. Well I also work at the hospital and I know that if I would have went back to er I would have been told it was from the ovary and to follow up with obgyn and surgery was in a week. So I chose to tough it out til surgery. Had surgery in Dec and after surgery Dr said she removed fallopian tubes but left ovary she said ovary was fine. After three days the pain returned it was the exact same pain in the exact same location. I contacted her again and was told give it a few weeks as I had just had surgery. At my follow up I had an ultrasound which I was told was fine. She then released me and said my pain was GI related. So after working with my PCP and a GI Dr they have determined that my pain is not GI related colonoscopy was perfect so they believe it's GYN related and referred me back to GYN I've called her office and her nurse had told me that the Dr believes it's not GYN related and if I was still having problems she could see me at the end of July. What should I do the pain is very regular wakes me from my sleep and affects me at work.
