:eek: Hello. I have tried to find answers from various doctors. It has not been a fruitful search. I had a hysterectomy in January of this year. I came home early the next day. As the days passed, I grew more weak and sick. I phoned the doc, and told her of my problems. She basically blew me off for two weeks. I called her on a Wednesday and told her that I thought I was dying. I couldn't eat or walk. She told me to come in when she got back from vacation. That didn't work for me, so I demanded to be seen. The doc that did see me found a 17cm hematoma, and a 9cm blood cyst on my right ovary. I was taken back to the hospital for emergency surgery. they cleaned me up inside and I spent 2 weeks in the hospital. After that ordeal, I developed another hematoma. I decided that I would let this one absorb. My hematocrit was down to 18 before the second surgery, and I was very weak. I have been very sore ever since. My abdomen feels quite bruised. It hurts alot when I wake in the A.M., and when I urinate. I decided to go to another doc last week. After all of the other stuff, I had gone in because of my pain, but everyone seemed to think I was seeking drugs. I'm not. I am seeking relief only. The docs have always found blood in my urine, but they have attributed it to my surgeries. Last week, she found some more. It was actually validating. How pathetic is that? She told me that I shouldn't have this much blood in there at this point. I was told that if there were a 1 to 5 scale, I would be at a 3.5. I have no bacteria/infection, and no back pain. The doc is going to call me next week and let me know where we go from here. Can anyone help me? I would appreciate it so much!
