Could you possibly have a prolapse or hernia? Not a doctor, but that's what I'd ask my doctor when I saw him/her.

So sorry you are having these pains, but you are in the right place. Everyone here is caring and very knowledgeable
I have experienced the same symptoms, just figured it was more bone/hip pain. I still have everything except my appendix.
I have a doctor appt Tues will let you know what he says.

Has this gone away, or have you been to the doctor about it yet? I hope you are feeling better by now.

I get those pains sometimes, but I know it is from my bladder. I used to think it was from my ovaries, but they removed them 2 years ago and pain never went away. I too have had everything else removed. I have Interstitial cystitis of the bladder and when it is acting up I feel like I did before my period also. It took them years of removing all kinds of things before the doctors figured out it was my bladder. My bladder doctor says it may be related to sclero, but the rheumatologist does not say much about it. Drinking lots of water helps my bladder from flaring.
Hope you find out what it is.

Sorry to hear you are having such pain!! I sure hope your doctor figures it out soon...perhaps those tests will tell all. Glad it's not any worse at least....let us know what you discover. Take care!

It sounds like adhesions. Abdominal surgery causes them and they can show up months and even many years later. I had a total colectomy 14 years ago and have horrible labor like pains shooting all around my hip, back and groin area. It especially acts up when I am standing for long periods, even housework brings it on.
It CAN be treated. It's called myofascial release. Once you read about see if you think that's what's up. I bet it is. Good luck. I have mine treated bi-weekly by a chiropractor but there are other practitioners who also do it. Sometimes physical therapists know how. E-mail me if you have a lot of questions, I'm not on here too often as I'm busy with nursing school...
