I am 25 with 2 children. Immediately after my last child, I developed a severe infection in my uterus. I was in hospital for a week, but haven't felt right since. I have an achy feeling in my hips and lower back almost constantly, pressure in my lower abdomen, i'm cold almost all the time (especially my hands and feet) and I just don't feel well at all. I'm so tired that sometimes I can't do anything. I had an ultrasound done today and haven't heard back from the doctor, but the technician said that everything looked fine to her. I get waves of hotflashes with nausea and lightheadedness everyday. It's almost like my back and lower abdomen feel queasy, not sure how to explain it. This has been going on for over a year now, but I was able to ignore it until now. It used to be on and off everyday, but now it is constant and interfering with my life. Please help.

  • Have another ultrasound to check for cysts or anything like that on your ovaries or in your uterus. The symptoms sound hormonal, which could mean a tumor in your reproductive system.

  • Thank you. I am thinking the same, but still haven't heard back from the doctor. I could feel something in there with my hand on my lower belly, and that is why i was sent in the first place. But the u/s technician asked me if i was sure i wasn't just constipated, and i really felt brushed off. I know it isn't her place to say anything anyway, so i'm trying not to let it bother me. I just hope that they figure this out soon.

  • it almost sounds more like a prolapse uterus. a hernia of muscle damage from having children. are you having any problems with bladder leakage when you cough or sneeze? you may need to see a surgical gynecologist for advice. you have no fever, infection, bleeding, sounds so much like it, lots of times if it not severe damage, they recommend excersices (special kind for the pelvic muscles) Expecially when you are young like you are. What did your obgyn say?:o

  • i don't think it is a prolapsed uterus... i don't have any pressure "down there", just in my belly. No word on it today, guess doctor didn't get results yet...
