I am 39. I had a hysterectomy about 11 years ago. Everything

Customer Question

I am 39. I had a hysterectomy about 11 years ago. Everything was removed, but my right ovary. For about 4 months, I have some bloating and gas most of the time. About two months ago, my right pelvic area and thigh along with my buttock started becoming achy and so numbness feeling. I had an X-ray of back and it didn't show anything. I am so very terrified after reading online that I could have ovarian cancer. My leg did get better for a couple of weeks. If it were because of ovarian cancer, wouldn't it stay bad?
