Severe pelvic pain: Whenever you have severe pelvic pain after "Hysterectomy and cyst" if one ovary WAS LEFT BEHIND then you can have ruptured cyst or problem with cyst as torsion or ruptured of cyst which will present as your complaints, other lower GI or GU pathology not able to rule out. If persisted over 24 to 48 hours you should see your Dr. ASAP. Best of luck.
