Strange pain

Ok..I am starting my 3rd three week cycle of Carboplatin and Taxol. Three weeks ago my CA125 was 5 so I am assuming my chemo is doing its job. It has been a little over 8 weeks since my total open hysterectomy. Yesterday I started having these wierd pains. On my left lower side I have a pain that feels like a nerve pain because it is a kind of burning pain. It is the same pain I had about 4 weeks ago when I was healing. I thought four weeks ago I over did it and pulled something. Has anyone had any experience with this? Do you think it could be my insides still healing from the surgery?

I had similar pain about 1 month after surgery. The ONC said it's from the retractor used during surgery and it will pass. And it did.
Could also be pain from the adhesions (scar tissue) or gas pain.
In any case - tell your doctor.

Yea..it is about 9 weeks post-op. Would I still have pain? Maybe it is scar tissue.
