I have lower abdominal pain an lower back pain sometimes its unbearable. I had a partial hysterectomy. I also get nauseous what could it be?

See your gyne MD: There are a number of possibilities, depending in part, what the reason was for your partial hysterectomy and when it was done. While possibly not related at all, your gynecologist should evaluate this initially, with a physical exam and ultrasound. This could be a problem with the uterus (recurrence), the ovary, adhesions from surgery, urinary tract infection or a gastrointestinal issue. ...Read more
