Any one have this symptom?

So I have been thru Radiation (Feb 10) and Chemo (May 10) and for the past week or so I am getting twinges of pain in my lower region (below the belly button). It is a quick twinge, similar to back to the old Ovulation days.... Since I no longer have those parts, I am wondering if I need to be concerned? Anyone else have them? I have an appt on 8/12 with my surgeon, just not sure if I should wait that long to mention.

Whatcha all think?

I have the same twinges and was told that it was from a surgical clip placed during my hysterectomy. Also, there is something called a urachus, a fibrous cord from your bladder. Does the twinge disappear after you empty your bladder? If so, might be that. My radiation oncologist told me that.

laurie,

i can't tell you how many miscellaneous pains i've had since my surgery over a year ago. nothing was wrong at all. my doctor told me she was "unimpressed" with my pains, and said they are most likley nerves recharging/connecting. they come and they go, and i've ceased worrying about them. i wouldn't be concerned if i were you, could also be adhesions/scar tissue--it was a big surgery! if it were me, i'd just keep my scheduled appointment and try not to worry about it. it's a good sign that the pains come and go.

sisterhood, maggie

I had a complete hysterectomy 2-1/2 years ago. About 9 months ago I started having what feels very much like menstrual cramps - a constant feeling of pressure with occassional sharp pains probably 90% of the time. No one can tell me what it is, but I've had a CT scan, colonoscopy, and I've seen a urologist and all tests have come back fine. I'm guessing that it is scar tissue or the clamps and have found that Aleve helps a lot. It's something I'm learning to live with and am no longer so upset by it, thinking that it must be cancer.

Love,
Cecile

Thanks Ladies, you have made me feel much better. I haven't had that twingey pain in a few days...it was just weird because it brought me back to a time when I had "those parts".

It is not painful enough for meds...thank goodness!
