Avatar n tn I ran across this forum by accident. I was looking up possible appendectomy complications. I sure hope somebody out there can help me! I had an emergency appendectomy three weeks ago today after going to the ER with severe lower abdominal pain. The surgeon told me there was alot of free blood and debris in my lower pelvic/abdominal area, but that the appendix only looked bad on the outside - the inside was fine. After five days in the hospital, I was sent home without complications.
Avatar n tn When I went back for my 4 wk checkup the doctor asked me a lot of questions, one was if I had a period and I told him yes. He then informed me that some women do have periods after a hysterectomy. AFTER HAVING A 2ND PERIOD SINCE SURGERY I AM WONDERING IF THIS IS NORMAL OR NOT????? Everyone says it isn't.
Avatar n tn On July 2 he returned to the ER with severe lower back pain, and he thought he was constipated. After a CT it was determined he had an abcess between his bowel and bladder. He was placed in the PICU until a second surgeon came in. After speaking with the second surgeon, they performed surgery to drain the abcess and placed 2 JP drains in his cavity on the night of the 2nd. After the surgery the doctor said she removed hard stool from the cavity probably left over from the first surgery.
Avatar m tn I am a 29 year old female with a history of chronic pelvic pain for the last 12 years. I had several cysts when I was younger, so that has always been the excuse for my pain. I had an IUD for 3-4 years and had a lot of ovarian cysts while I had it. I eventually got it removed do to having a pelvic infection. I even had a cyst removed from my ovary about 7 years ago that was found to be borderline/precancerous. I still have both ovaries and my uterus.
Avatar f tn In early November, I was hospitalized for diverticulitis but after a colonoscopy on Wednesday revealed a completely normal, clear bowel, I'm left wondering what I actually had during my three day hospitalization. Here is a breakdown of events leading to the hospitalization: I started having mild sharp, stabbing pains in my lower left abdomen around June. It was sparatic in nature and lasted for maybe a few minutes. I assumed it was due to gas, constipation or womanly issues.

Avatar n tn Injury to the femoral nerve is a recognized complication during abdominal, pelvic, inguinal and hip operations. The most common surgical cause associated with femoral nerve injury has been abdominal hysterectomy, (7.5-10% incidence quoted). I don't have the number for appendectomy but I'm sure the figure is lower. The nerve usually is inadvertently damaged (either cut, snared by suture, stretch or pressure from retractors) during the procedure.
Avatar n tn Endometriosis is sometimes mistaken for other conditions that can cause pelvic pain, such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) or ovarian cysts. It may be confused with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a condition that causes bouts of diarrhea, constipation and abdominal cramping. IBS can accompany endometriosis, which can complicate the diagnosis. When to see a doctor See your doctor if you have signs and symptoms that may indicate endometriosis.
