In previous months I have made posts in the kidney section. I had been told that I had kidney stones, they probably passed, etc... I still do not know what is going on and am just looking for some advice or input. Here is my situation.
FOr months now I have been sufferring with pain on the left side. Flank pain and pain in that entire area. If you put your entire hand on the top of your hip, that entire area has been hurting. It's not a stabbing unreal pain but an extremely uncomfortable ache. It's not all day but everyday. This has been going on for gosh, at least the last 6 plus month. In addition to that I have had unexplained hematuria. All along I have not been all that concerned with the hematuria. It was basically found on an accident.
I have been for a CAT scan and IVP. They both basically said I had a small stone and the next test indicated that it had possibly passed.
I started with a new Doctor who has given me referrals for obgyn, urology, and a gastro. Doctor. So far all I have done is gone for the vaginal ultrasound. I was completely against it but the strangest thing happended...When she pushed on something on the left side it immediately triggerred the pain in my flank, and that whole area I described above. I asked her what that was she was pushing on and she said it was my left ovary. Can an ovary cause pain in the flank, lower back and wrap around to the front just above the hip bone?
When I asked her about it she just said the usual "I'm not allowed to say a thing, your Doctor will have the results in three to four days."
Does anyone have any ideas? If it were ovary problems wouldnt it have shown up on the CAT scan? I'm not looking for a diagnosis from any of you. Just some input. This is driving me crazy. Also, I hope to have the results back and hope to know finally what is wrong. I'm scheduled for a sigamoid scope in two weeks and I do not want to go. Yuck...I had to force myself to go in today for the sonagram.
Hope to hear replies. Thanks.
