I'm a female, and realize I'm posting on a men's health board, but I had to reply. I had a hysterectomy 3 years ago. About 8 months ago, I started experiencing pain on my right side that radiates around my hip and down my leg. It feels almost completely gone when I'm up and walking around. It's only when I sit or am laying down for a period of time that it begins to hurt. I also was told it could be scar tissue. It has recently gotten bad to where I'm thinking about having a laparoscopy to have a look-see. I've often heard that scar tissue can be very painful. The drs. can go in and repair it, but more often than not, it comes back.

My family doc thinks this pain is scar tissue from the original operation where the mesh was stapled to the abdominal wall. I have had a CT scan but it shows nothing. Has anyone experieced this same problem?
