Ten years ago I had a full hysterectomy, due to a heema Toma

Resolved Question:

Ten years ago I had a full hysterectomy, due to a heema Toma 12 weeks later I had further surgery. Laperscopically the infection was removed. I had further complications and after MRI ct and other scans it was found I had a spinal abscess which was drained. 6 wks later I was back in surgery to have a bowel resection. That was the end if it. Since I have had extreme pain in back, which is still unexplained but occurred from that period. In the last six months sex has become extremely painful, to the point that last week, I ended up the hospital. Blood tests showed a white cell count of 13. I am being sent for an MRI at the end if August. I am concerned though, I generally feel unwell, fatigued, the pain in my back is awful, and after a couple if hours if being on my feet, my stomach is blowing up its sore and my bowel hurts.

Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

I am sorry about your sacral pain

Dr. David :

I am glad you are going to get an MRI scan

Dr. David :

this can see if you have a recurrence of an abscess or possible endometriosis.

Dr. David :

another possibility is that you have excessive scar tissue and adhesions in your abdomen and pelvis from all of your prior surgeries and infections

Dr. David :

which can lock up your bowels and cause severe pain.

Dr. David :

with an elevated WBC count you could have pelvic inflammatory disease or an infection in your pelvis.

Dr. David :

hopefully the MRI scan will show what is going on

Dr. David :

you might need to go on antibiotics and birth control pills if a pelvic infection is found.

Dr. David :

let me know if you have questions.

Customer: As I said ten years ago I had a full hysterectomy, I am concerned that I have a month to wait. Is there possibly a route cause, a reason why I keep getting these infections, at a different time I had septacemia.
Dr. David :

I would not wait a month for an MRI scan.

Dr. David :

I would try to get a pelvic and abdominal ultrasound sooner

Dr. David :

or a CT scan sooner.

Dr. David :

you need to get a urine test as well.

Dr. David :

if you have a pelvic infection you need to get on antibiotics sooner.

Customer: Thank you, ***** ***** it is then.
Dr. David :

yes.

Dr. David :

best of luck to you

Dr. David :

or you can go to the A&E for sooner evaluation if you need to.

Dr. David :

especially if you start to develop fevers

Dr. David :

best of luck to you
