This is pretty embarassing, but I'm hopeful someone out there has experienced this or know someone who has, so here I go. About 20 years ago (I'm 47), I had to have a hysterectomy as a result of endometriosis. At the time, I was advised that my uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes and one ovary had been removed. I started having serious hot flashes and all around discomfort about 8 months ago, and my gynecologist put me on Estratest which has helped alot. I was advised at that exam that I had BOTH OVARIES AND NOT ONE AS I HAD BEEN TOLD. Also at the time that I went to see him, it was time for my overall physical, and I explained to my internist and the gynecologist that I had been having some problems with groin pain (the right side) and that I was experiencing periodic heavy rectal bleeding - sometimes with fairly large clots. The blood is always bright red in color. I was sent to a gastroenterologist for an upper endoscopy and colonoscopy - he found a polyp (benign) and removed it. My confusion is from the fact that whenever I experience this groin pain, I always have the rectal bleeding, and I simply do not understand why, and no one seems to be able to tell me anything. Has anyone heard of anything like this?
