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?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
