Maybe: If you've resumed sex then it may be the cause of the bleeding as the cuff of the vagina needs to stretch a bit. It could also be a cuff hematoma, cuff granulation tissue. Another possibility is that you have a supracervical hysterectomy with some residual endometrium tissue in the canal. If it persists see your GYN for an exam. ...Read more

Integrative pain Rx: The ERs job is to rule out emergency. They did. But you still have pain. 1st thing is to go back to your original surgeon, or another surgeon who is recommended, to re-eval and review the scan. They might want another scan. If everything turns up negative, don't despair. It's good not to have a "surgical" problem. There are more subtle approaches to use. Let me know if you're stuck ...Read more

I had a hysterectomy 6 months ago everything removed because of endemitriosis have had terrible pain left lower side after scan they find cyst! ?

Red herring?: 40's female post-hysterectomy for endometriosis has "terrible left side" pain. Per med literature, nearly every pelvic invasive procedure leads to bowel adhesions; not discoverable by imaging techniques. My experience is that the series of invasive procedures oft performed in "endometriosis" patients can beget IBS. Also consider SIJ disorder; oft associated with endometriosis.

I am experiencing side pain below my ribs on the left and right side, more so the left. I also had a hysterectomy almost 2 weeks ago.

Atelectasis?: My assumption here would be something called atelectasis, a lung condition which is temporary and which tends to occur after abdominal operations. Essentially, if it hurts to take a deep breath you tend to take shallow breaths which leads to compression of the lungs which can be painful. A chest x-ray would show it. But this is just an assumption, sight unseen of course. ...Read more
