Bloated abdomen, pain on lower left quadrant. Have tied tubes and menopause. Cause of pain?

I Have been feeling a throbbing pulsating pain on LLQ. My abdomen seems bloated. I had recently started to juice and have been consuming collard greens, spinach , papaya, and apple in my mixture. Could this be causing the pain? I also have my left tube tied ( ectopic pregnancy /right Fallopian removed) and in transition into menopause . Would this also cause symptom? Thanks in advance for replying.

Dear madam, my opinion is that these symptoms are more likely associated with your previous surgical procedure then with your diet. You should definitely check your pelvic organs. this means you should do pelvic ultrasound or CT scan to see if there is some collection or abscesses formation or adhesions in area of removed fallopian tube. Adhesions could cause intestinal obstruction and symptoms u re describing. Pulsating pain could mean that vessels are involved but Ultrasound should detect this too. Many other disorders can be considered such as diverticulitis, crohn disease or ovary cyst so i advice first to do tests i ve mentioned.

Wish you good health, Ivan Romich
