Ovarian pain? Uterus pain?

By Anonymous February 11, 2015 - 5:30pm

A year ago, I had to have an emergency c-section to deliver my baby (as I was planning on a vaginal birth). After having the surgery, I have been getting these sharp ("ice-pick like) pains randomly, but frequent enough to make me concerned.

The pain is inside, I feel it either in my ovaries or uterus, and when it happens, I can't even walk.

I have shared this with my OB/GYN (the same doctor who delivered my baby) and he pretty much dismissed my symptoms by telling me that my body changed because I had a baby and now I will feel differently.

I was so shocked to hear that! Seriously! He was not interested in what I was telling him. He interrupted me while I was telling him how concerned I am that I am getting these jolting pains, and I can't even walk sometimes.

So, my question is: Is there a name for these "symptoms"? or should I be addressing this differently with the doctor? and if so, how?

Please help!
Much thanks!

Hi Anon

Thank you for your post, I'm sorry you're in pain and not being listened to by your doctor.  It may be time to look for a new doctor. They are there to listen, as well as to talk. 

Your pain could be due to a lot of scar tissue or even damage to your bladder. You could also have muscle or nerve damage. 

I think a scan (like an ultrasound) is a good idea so that your doctor can look at your reproductive organs better. It is your right to insist on testing, Anon. 

Will you keep us posted?
