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.

PELVIC ULTRASOUND: I had a biopsy last Thursday how long do you have to edit before you resume intercourse? What does of this means? HISTORY48 years female : Postmenopausal bleeding Comparison: 4-28-14 pelvic ultrasound Transabdominal sonographic evaluation of the pelvis reveals a retroflexed uterus measuring 11.0 x 5.2 x 4.6 cm. Transvaginal sonographic evaluation of the pelvis reveals several nabothian cysts in the cervix. The endometrial stripe is heterogeneous and exhibits a maximum thickness of 11 mm which is abnormally thickened for a postmenopausal female not on hormone replacement therapy. The uterine myometrium is diffusely heterogeneous, raising the possibility of adenomyosis. Multiple subcentimeter cystic spaces are noted in the endometrium. Neoplasia cannot be excluded. A small amount of free fluid is visible in the pelvis. A posterior, intramural fibroid measures 0.8 x 0.8 x 0.7 cm. The right ovary measures 3.0 x 3.0 x 1.4 cm. A hypoechoic lesion in the right adnexa, measuring 2.2 x 2.0 x 1.0 cm is most suggestive of a paraovarian cyst. The left ovary measures 4.4 x 2.1 x 1.9 cm and contains a 0.8 x 0.7 x 0.7 hypoechoic lesion with an echogenic rim; this lesion is not significantly changed from the prior exam. IMPRESSION: 1. Thickened endometrial stripe containing numerous subcentimeter cystic spaces; neoplasia cannot be excluded. Further evaluation with endometrial biopsy or sonohysterography should be considered. 2. Hypoechoic lesion previously noted in the right ovary is not evident on the current exam. 2. Subcentimeter, hypoechoic lesion in the left ovary which exhibits an echogenic rim is not significantly changed from 4-28-14. A similar lesion was noted on a 10-30-13 pelvic ultrasound,
