I got both removed through laproscopy. other than that from almost last year when I sleep at night almost after 5 hours of sleep I wake up with lower back pain at both left n right side, this pain goes away as I get busy in my day routine..this pain went off after laproscopy for one month , also after laproscopy I m taking iron capsules everyday but the day I left taking iron I felt lower back pain again when I woke up in the morning. can you please advice on the same.

Brief Answer: EXPLAINED BELOW Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX Thanks for writing to us with your health concern. I have gone through your reports. You had dermoid cyst in one ovary and endometrioma on the other. The back pain is most probably due to endometriosis. This is a condition due to hormonal imbalance, where endometrium ( lining of the uterus ) grows in places outside the uterus. This was present on your ovary , and removed. But minor , sometimes, invisible deposits are present on the pelvic surfaces which cause back pain, particularly around the periods. Also get yourself tested for calcium and vitamin D deficiency, as that too, can cause back pain. After laparoscopy there might be adhesion formation inside the abdomen, giving rise to post operative pain. Please consult your gynecologist for the testing. For endometriosis, cyclical hormone therapy ( oral contraceptive pills for 3 months or cyclical progesterone alone if you are trying to conceive ) will minimize pain and discomfort. All the best. please feel free to discuss.
