Brief Answer:
Needs workup and clinical correlation in detail

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking
Pain hyoogastrium with no uterus non complain of urinary troubles association with walking and intra abdominal pressure ( coughing) and postures need a little more detailed history and physical examination and some work up to assess and categorise. Bowel movements and habits are important here.musculoskeletal pains need to be ruled out too. Bladder infections should have urinary complains so least likely.get some Antispasmodics and see if they help.seek a gastroenterologist and let them run some labs and see if they come up with the diagnosis.
It's too early to comment on.20 years old history of hysterectomy is not significant here except that the adhesions resulted might have some role in the pain here.
Needs work up and a complete clinical corrlation for further management. Seek help.
I hope it helps. Take good care of yourself and don't forget to close the discussion please.
May the odds be ever in your favour.

Hi I am a 43 year old Indian married women with two kids of age 14 and 10, I have a history of hormonal imbalnce, Strong PMS & irregular periods through out, otherwise no other health problem, one year back I have removed Mirena because of continuous bloating in abdomen and tenderness and pain in breast, no other side effects during 5 years of usage.8 days back I have gone through my first D&C because of 7 weeks unwanted pregnancy due to contraceptive failure. During the screening I am detected with a fibroid sized 2.4X1.6 Cm in in the anterior myometrium of the uterus . Please suggest me an oral contraceptive which can reduce my PMS as well and can support my age and newly discovered Fibroid. I have heared about Yasmin or Yaz with anti bloating properties, Please suggest, I want to consult an Indian Dr. due to availability of medicines.
