So I have been dealing with chronic back pain for 3 years. Long story. But I just got back from the ER tonight because I was having abdominal pain and unusual excessive bleeding when I just finished my period 3 to 4 days ago. I found out I have a UTI and a cyst causing me sharp pain in my stomach. Also just started MS Contin for my chronic back pain. Could this med be making my stomach cramp to with nausea?Or is it just the cyst. And I just started Physical therapy for my back and my next session is Monday. We are working on my core/ stomach to help my back. I don't think I can go and do those exercises because my stomach hurts so much. Should I just go and tough it out? Should I stop MS Contin because it may be contributing to my stomach pain? Sorry I am a hot mess tonight!
I know the pain you're talking about. It's horrible. I had hemorrhagic ovarian cysts on both sides. When they would rupture, it took me to my knees. I doubt that your pain meds are adding to the abdominal pain --- maybe some nausea, like KM said. You'll be pretty sore for a few days and I doubt that you will be able to tolerate the pain from PT. Plus the UTI is making your abdomen tender. KM is spot on --- no PT while you are having the pain from the cyst and UTI. Just take it easy until you feel better.
I agree with Kaismama, skip the exercise. My daughter is now 22. but she has ovarian cysts on both her ovaries. She has horrific Endo. every month since the age of 15. She had surgery to remove a cyst on her left ovary 3 years ago. Her back pain and stomach pain when she had her period was so sad to see her suffer with. She has a tilted Uterus as well. I think this contributed to the back pain. Sadly, during the operation the Doctor nicked her ovary and could not get the bleeding to stop. She lost her ovary and tube, they said she would have a hard time conceiving. And may not because the right ovary was cystic as well. She even went to fertility clinic. Every month she has endured this terrible back pain. She always had UTI! The test said her bladder was not completely emptied. even though she could not urinate anymore.
and this caused bacteria to build up and she would have UTI on a regular basis. Proud to announce it is a miracle, she conceived, after she gave up. Her and her husband tried for 2 years. And now she is 20 weeks pregnant! Since she doesn't have a period now, the back pain was definitely from the cyst and Endo. she just had an ultrasound and their is still a cyst on the right ovary. My answer became longer than I meant, but just wanted you to know that taking your pain meds is going to help. and take it easy. Their is hope for women who suffer from ovarian cysts and pain. I do think you should consult a specialist about the UTI situation. I hope this helped and good luck!
When I had ovarian cyst erupt I had no idea. It certainly brought me to my knees. I was dumb enough to tell my husband to go out with friends in a city we were visiting. The doctor told me I could have bled to death. The intense pain that went on for over 24 hours was internal bleeding. He said I was lucky.
This was while I was undergoing infertility hormone treatment. All ended well and sometimes I get to brag a bit about my miracle child. One never gives up with fertility. One shouldn't go around forgetting to protect their health. Be careful with choices and anything too intense for too long needs a doctor now. Easier to recover when treated early than all the scar tissue later. K
