I am new to this... I am a 36 yr old mom of two boys. I have been experiencing abdominal pain in my lower left abdomen. I had a colonoscopy and there were no problems in my descending colon, the left side. However I did have two small polyps on the right. When the doctor made the left turn during the colonoscopy, although I was drugged it was so painful I came up and almost off of the table. During the procedure other than that, I felt nothing, not even when she removed the polyps. When she removed the camera, there was tenderness in the same area as I had experienced pain initially. However, I continue to have pain in my left side and I was wondering if it could be my kidney or perhaps an ovary? I have had my annual gyne exam and the doctor did not note anything unusual. At the time I thought the pain was due to constipation, but here I am all "cleaned out" and I still have the pain. I don't even have irritable bowel syndrome. I hate to go back to the doctor, but should I call my gynecologist and tell her? It can be so embarassing to sit there and feel something wrong, and then they can't find what is the matter. I hate having to explain my bowel habits in detail! If someone can help I would appreciate it.:confused:
