Customer Question
Hi; I have had...

Hi; I have had pelvic pain over a period of weeks now. I had it in 2014 and now it's back in 2016. Stays around for weeks, starts on right side usually. Had 2 ultrasounds, one in 2014 and one a few weeks ago. Both saw mild fluid in the cul-de-sac and endocervical canal, and that's all. Gyn says may have been a cyst rupturing, but I'm concerned that the pain is staying around so long - and that this has happened to me twice now. Thanks for any insight you can provide.

Doctor's Assistant: The Gynecologist will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Gynecologist should know?

There is also concurrent chest pain. Saw a gastro because the pain is sometimes worse after eating, did an endocopy and colonscopy, nothing there. Did all kinds of cardiac tests in 2014, also nothing. Concerned about ovarian cancer even though ultrasounds show nothing on ovaries.

Hi

There is no indication of ovarian cancer.

It does sound like a cyst.

CT would completely rule out ovarian CA, but ultrasound is almost as good.

This does not sound like endometriosis.

Fibroids have been ruled out.

Irritable bowel should be considered as well.

If you are 50 or older, you should have a colonoscopy.

OK, so that is an initial answer….

Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
