For the first six months of last year, I had this slight annoying pain in my left lower pelvis. I had an ultrasound of ovary and pelvis and everything came back normal. Then in July, I was dx with follicular lymphoma and around the time of surgery to biopsy the nodes that were in the mesentery and much higher up than the pain, the pain went away! I was then treated with chemotherapy for the lymphoma and at the end of another six months, the pain in the left lower pelvis came back. My oncologist felt it might be a bowel problem and sent me for a colonoscopy, the results of which came back normal.

Any ideas what this might be? I feel I have had all tests available. My ct scans show nothing remarkable in the pelvis and I am due for another in a week or two to ensure the enlarged mesentery lymph nodes have gone.
