What can cause pain in left side of abdomen and vaginal discharge?

I had a partial hysterectomy in September due to fibroids in my uterus. I had a great recovery with little down time. One month ago I started having some pain on the left side of my abdomen where I believe my ovaries are located. Tonight I had some bloody (old blood) discharge. Could this be fibroids on my ovaries now?

Hi,

A woman may undergo some hormonal changes post hysterectomy and may face these symptoms like brownish vaginal discharge, irritability, mood swings, lost in interest in sex, decreased libido and I believe your doctor might have kept you on hormonal treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Naira Jahangir, OB and GYN Specialist

I think I may have forgotten about a tampon inside of me. it s been about a week, I noticed the smell a few days ago, also had yellow discharging and left side pains in my abdomen. today I have been getting lower back pains and my stool had white fluffy stuff on it. I have yet to have a fever though. should I be worried? I have not gotten the tampon out, and also cannot find it.

My husband and I have been married 23 years and I have had four kids by him. My youngest is now ten years old, I m 41. I have only ever been with him. I never had pain during intercourse until about two years ago. Now it hurts where my uterus is and my pelvic area gets swollen and sore afterwards even when he is being gentle. As soon as I almost climax the pain gets bad to where I feel like I m going to faint because I get dizzy. I had a scan of my stomach done about three years ago, I had my gall bladder and appendix removed about two years ago. I was told at the time that it appeared my uterus was swollen but then they said they guessed I was fine since I had four kids they said I was normal
