Hello friend..
For the symptoms you described , first of all you have to undergo ultrasonography of the abdomen.
After sonography, consult a surgeon near by you, because the pain you described is possibly due to ureteric stone but the swelling requires proper examination for diagnosis.

I am experiencing pain in lower left side abdomen, tender to the touch, ( only when I press down ) constipation symptoms appeared 2 days ago, no fever. Also I noticed possible small amount of blood in stool when wiping but not a lot; trace amounts. I have been told I have Diverticulosis sited on colonoscopy but have had no prior problems. In late January I fell on the ice and landed very hard on my backside. I am still having back pain and tingling sensation on right side of lower back hip area. However I did not have the abdominal pain mentioned above at that time. The lower left abdominal pain came on rather suddenly in the past 2 days. I think they are seperate issues but not sure. I have been refraining from solid foods and drinking liquids. I have been dealing with an extreme amount of stress as well. My questions are 1. What do you think is causing the abdominal pain and how to treat or watch for? When do I need to see a Doctor? 2. Regarding the back pain; it has been over 3 mos. There has been some improvement but I still get occanssional tingling sensation and my range of movement is still compromised. I have only seen a chiropractor shortly after the injury occured. I have not seen a medical Doctor yet.

Hi Doctor,In my ultrasound scan it was detected i have bulky left ovary with size 4.9x3.7cm with multiple cysts. Few blood hemorrages are also found. Now i am advised to use Contraceptive pills everyday for 3 cycles. This will stop me from conceiving. Is this really to worry ? Since my Right ovary is normal should i wait or start with the medication? Need to mention i have regular periods (27-29 days cycle) with normal flow. I haven t gained weight and no unusual symptoms found.

Hi,



7 weeks ago i had an ovarian cyst aspirated laparoscopically after 18 months of various symtoms including severe pelvic pain, abdominal cramping and bloating,vomitting, loss of appetite, night sweats etc. A week after surgery i had a pelvic ultrasound which showed a 2 1/2 cm cyst on same ovary, the ultrasound has also shown a cyst on my spleen and left kidney. Im very confused and worried and the consultant in my hospital is not seeing me again for another 6 months eventhough im still experiencing all symptoms.
