Why am I experiencing pain along my right side pelvic are to the leg after undergoing a surgery for dermoid cyst ?

Hi, I am 28 yrs old and i had a surgery last month to remove a 5cms dermoid cyst from my right ovary . I was feeling better until a few days back i started to experience pain along my right side, pelvic area to the leg. This pain is similar to the pain i had before the cyst was removed. What could be causing this pain? Is it because the cyst has grown again? Please help.

Hi
A dermoid cyst doesnt grow so fast.If you are having pain i would suggest getting a ultrasound to rule out local injury/bleeding etc.

5 wks ago I had conventional surgery to remove a dermoid cyst and both ovaries were removed. Two days later I was told that I was losing blood but they didn t know where. I was given a transfusion and ultra sound. The ultra sound showed that I had a hematoma a little larger than a baseball that was lodged in the pelvic area. It was told that this would cause more pain and take longer to heal. A week ago I was taken off all restrictions as my incision was doing well....and that the clot was smaller. Since I have had tried to increase activity but each time I do I feel weak and have more pain....more like a pulling sensation in my abdomen. I realize that my age is a factor too, being 81. However, I m a very active person and don t use my age as an excuse. Also, about three weeks ago my neighbor called 911 as I was so weak and looked unwell. The ER doctor ran all types of tests with good results. He also ordered another ultra sound and the told me he was going to call the gynecologist on call. He ordered an antibiotic. If memory serves me right the ER doctor said something about a small suture seeping ....I am quite concerned, first of all why I had post surgery internal bleeding. Until my visit to ER and being on an antibiotic I was having chills and low grade fever every evening...fever would be about 100.4 - 100.8. My normal temp is 97.6. Please advise.

I am 33 years old and had a 7cm dermoid cyst removed just over two weeks ago they also removed part of my left ovary. During the night after the operation I was in so much pain in the right side ribs and my neck it was unbearable. This would come and go I was given morpheine, codeine and paracetamol all in one go which did nothing. The doctors put this down to full bladder and gas being trapped. Since the operation opening my bowels or even passing urine is extremely painful. When passing urine it s like a sharp shooting pain through the pelvic area, when opening my bowels again shooting pains through particularly the anus and Also the pelvic area. So bad I am grabbing the toilet seat. I have opened my bowels each day since the operation but I am still experiencing this pain do you know why? Many thanks

I seem to be having a dermoid cyst and will be undergoing surgery in a weeks time. Which specific doctor would I need to consult. I am aware that it needs to be a gynae but would it be anything specific within that category, it needs to be open surgery as the cyst is big and near the aorta.

I have clear fluid like water coming from my vagina-not urethra. I can not feel it happen and only notice when I stand up and see a wet spot on a chair or clothing. There is no odor, pain, itching, color...clear and the same consistency as water. This has happened once before when I did NOT have my period. I have endomitriosis and have had my menstrual cycle since 6/13...the past 4 days with fever, nausea, swollen gums and diarrhea-all normal for me during a bad endo phase. Probably unrelated, but I have a Primary Immune Disorder, CVID Ocular Sarcoidosis, Sjogren s, Asthma, and have had my right ovary and fallopian tube removed when a dermoid tumor grew very large and attached to both organs.
