i have had pelvic pain since december felt very heavy dull

Resolved Question:

i have had pelvic pain since december felt very heavy dull ache, and by the end of the day feels like its burning down there, i had a scan everything was clear except the lady that scanned me said i had very full varicose vein down there, and on the scan results to the gynea it said suggested varices yet when i saw the gynea he never mentioned these and surgested i see my doctor as could be bowel problems as i told him i also had a lot of gas and wind and feel full very easy, could these veins be my problem as i have read a lot about pelvic congestion and my symptoms are the same.

Dr Owen :

Hello

Dr Owen :

Pelvic congestion - that equals congestion of the veins, meaning sluggishness of the blood flow of the veins and hence this is a problem in the veins of the pelvic organs, which also is continuous on down to the veins of the bowel and towards the rectum which can result in Hemorrhoids

Dr Owen :

hi

Customer:

hi,

Dr Owen :

and so what I do for pelvic congestion - as sometimes I find this similar to Endometriosis - I will given an injection of Depo LUpron - either the one month version of 3.75mg or the 3 month version of 11.25 mg

Dr Owen :

But also since this has ONLY been going on since December - I would check an Ultrasound and also check the Dopplers - which would check the flow of the blood within the blood vessels of the pelvis

Customer:

ok thank you i was just wondering why the gynea didn't mention the veins i am going back to the doctors tomorrow and will be asking him again, i also have noticed the veins on my leg a lot more visible and more spider veins have appeared.

Dr Owen :

Yes, - well ask for an Ultrasound - that can help

Dr Owen :

and also a GOOD rectal exam too would be helpful

Dr Owen :

I wish you well
