Thanks for writing to us

IUCD sometimes gets entangled in the gut and it is very difficult to find it.

You can get CT guided laproscopy or it can be taken out under C arm which is used by an orthopedic surgeon.

Other option is laparotomy.

The burning sensation is not due to IUD

There can be other reasons , the most common being the post operative burning due to gas insufflation.

Other reasons can be local muscular problem and Vit B12 deficiency

Take methylcobalamin tablets under doctor's prescription

I hope I have answered your query , if you want to ask anything else you are most welcome

Take care

Best wishes
