Question: hello
I would like to know, what do the following mean.

Bulky uterus
thickened endometrium (14mm)
cervix is bulky and shows few nabothian cysts, each measures 5 mm, 6mm, 4 mm
right ovary shows 1.9 * 1.8 cms simple cyst with XXXXXXX echoes
left ovary shows 1.0 * 1.0 cms simple cyst with XXXXXXX echoes
minimal free fluid seen in POD

Thanks for the query.

The report is suggesting:
Size of the uterus is bigger than normal.
Endometrial thickness increased. (Normal up to 8 to 9 mm).
Hypertrophied cervix and nabothian cysts suggesting chronic pelvic infection.
Both ovaries are having cysts. Appearing as benign cysts.
The XXXXXXX echoes can be possibly because of hemorrhage into the cyst during ovulation or because of endometriosis.
Free fluid in pouch of XXXXXXX suggests ovulation or sometimes pelvic inflammatory disease.
So if you correlate your clinical features with ultrasound findings the exact cause of the changes can be made out and treatment can be taken accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

I had a complete hysterectomy 04.10.14 the last two weeks I have a burning pain in the lower left side near the scar where the ovary was removed. the pain is worst by far when I sit up in bed, it s like it is pulling something . I fell the pain all the time.

I have had stomach problems ever since i was a child. I am 28 now, and the stomach issues have only gotten worse. I always remember my stomach hurting, and having diarrhea. After i had my kids, the pain got worse. Then my periods would cause severe cramps and leave me in bed for days. I started feeling pressure in my bowels, and experienced trouble moving my bowels. I was constipated almost as much as i had diarrhea. I very rarely had a normal stool. Within the last year, the pain has doubled. I finally went to the doc about the cramps - thinking it might be endometriosis. But now i wonder if it has something to do with my stomach issues all of these years. My daughter has been complaining more often about her stomach hurting - i m worried that she has the same thing that i had all of my life. I don t know what it is, but i don t want her to be in pain either. Any idea of what i might have? My symptoms currently are nausea, vomiting, intense abdominal cramps during menses, and uncomfortable pains the rest of the time. I get chest pains frequently, I have a hard time holding my bladder, have pain during sex, and vaginal/clitoral swelling/pain. I don t know if it s all connected or what, but i m tired of being in pain. My doctors don t see to have a clue what is going on.
