Could recovery from left ovary and fallopian tube removal cause pain in the left side of the rectum, with no pain during bowel movement and no blood?

Could recovery from left ovary and fallopian tube removal cause pain in the left side of the rectum, with no pain during bowel movement and no blood?

Could?: Almost anything 'could' happen. The question is how you know the pain is rectal and not perirectal or radiating from some other area. You should go back and allow the surgeon who did the procedure reevaluate you and find a satisfactory answer to your problem. Hope you feel better soon. Must be very disturbing. ...Read more

Had tlh w/ ovary, fallopian tubes, and cervix removal. Should I still have a yearly women's physical or is it not necessary since I have no cervix?

Had tlh w/ ovary, fallopian tubes, and cervix removal. Should I still have a yearly women's physical or is it not necessary since I have no cervix?

Women's health: The big question is why did you have your ovaries, tubes, and cervix (not uterus) removed? If it was for a cancerous condition, you should continue to get pap smears every 3-5 years. If not, you don't need any more paps, and there is really no proven benefit to routine pelvic examinations beyond the pap smear. Of course, you need to get regular mammograms starting at age 50. ...Read more

I always seem to feel ovulation on my left side. But I have only my right fallopian tube and its open. Why don't I ever feel twinges on my right side?

Ovaries: Ovaries are the organ that ovulate, and not fallopian tubes. Absence of feeling it does not mean you don't ovulate on the right side. Also, even if you only have 1 tube, the egg from the other side can still be picked up by that tube. ...Read more

Is it normal to have cramping on my right side where my fallopian tube was removed several months ago?

Is it normal to have cramping on my right side where my fallopian tube was removed several months ago?

Tube removal: Removal of the tube can cause adhesions of connective tissue on the side of the surgery. Stretching this with movement causes the pain. On the other hand, an ovarian cyst (tumor) can cause severe pain and is common after removal of the tube due to lower blood supply to the ovary. Consult your healthcare provider for an exam and a sonogram to check for cysts. ...Read more

Fallopian tubes: The anatomy of your Fallopian tubes can be visualized by a histosalpingogram. They inject dye thru your cervix into your uterus and then into the tubes which are then seen on X-Ray. The bleeding on one side could be due to a bifid uterus. Speak to your OB. ...Read more

I have bad pain in the left side of my abdomen. Sort of like where my fallopian tube is supposed to be. It's as if there was air in there. Is this bad?

Can't tell: It is impossible to answer that. But I can tell you that you cannot sense whether your pain is from the fallopian tube, ovary, urinary system or intestines or muscles, nor can you sense "air" as the problem. You should probably see your doctor. ...Read more

Pain on my left side around my ovary area. I had a laprascopy to remove my fallopian tube on that side earlier this year due to a simple cyst. Not intense pain. But continual. Should I get it checked out or is it nothing to worry about?

Pain on my left side around my ovary area. I had a laprascopy to remove my fallopian tube on that side earlier this year due to a simple cyst. Not intense pain. But continual. Should I get it checked out or is it nothing to worry about?

Get checked: Might you have had the cyst removed from the ovary rather than the Fallopian tube? If so, your pain could be another cyst. If you are having pain where you had a previous surgery, I recommend that you see your surgeon and let them tell you it's nothing to worry about. ...Read more
