Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Before I opine on your problem I would like to know how was the gall bladder pathology ruled out ?

Though the low back ache is not related to the gall bladder problem, I wish to know whether you have undergone an ultrasound scan done.

If you have undergone the scan do please attach the report here.

Hi,

Thanks for writing back.

I too would not suspect the gall bladder being involved.I just wish to ascertain whether a pelvic ultrasound scan was done.

The problem you have is related to pelvic structures the uterus or ovaries.Also the symptoms you have are usually presented when there is a tumour involved.

I suggest you to get an Abdominopelvic Ultrasound scan done as early as possible.The scan will clearly identify the exact problem.

Do consult a Gynaecologist with the scan report for early management.

Hope I answered all your questions. Please use any answer clarification before closing and rating this answer. I will be happy to explain or expand on any issue you may have.

Wish you good health.
