I had a laparotomic myomectomy in January 2009. Since then, i have been having pains on my LEFT LEG. It started as mild shocks which emanates from that dimple in the back of the lower waist and runs down to the feet it the lower abdomen hurts badly as well, but it has now degenerated into a chronic spasms that concentrates on the lower back, abdomen and thigh. The pain ALWAYS starts 14 days after my Period and ends 2 days before the next period(approx for 14 days)Sadly, the pain doesnt last more than 20 mins per instance and is much more frequent at night so it seems useless taking any medication for it.Doctors have given me all sorts of drugs eg neurontin, olfen, ibuprofen and presently Tramadol, but the relief is always temporary. The last gynae i saw has been the only 1 who has been successful in stopping the pain. from all the test results and scan results i showed him, he believe i may have either or both Endo and adhesions.He believes either the womb or ovary adhered to the obdurator nerve after my previous myomectomy. to verify this, he gave me Zoladex implants for 2 consecutive months and the pain never happened! the last zoladex implant expired on the 8th of August and voila! the pain started again on the 28th of August! he advises a laparoscopy to disentangle whatever is adhering but am so so so scared of another surgery cos something may go wrong again. But the pain is so out of this world! is there sense in doing another surgery? please help

Dear Angela
We are concern about the problem you are facing. Zoladex (goserelin) is a form of a hormone that regulates many processes in the body. Zoladex in women to treat endometriosis. It is also used in women to prepare the lining of the uterus for endometrial ablation (a surgery to correct abnormal uterine bleeding). If this medicine is helping you then the cause may be endometriosis. laparoscopy may be helpful in diagnosing some causes of chronic pelvic pain such as endometriosis and chronic pelvic inflammatory disease. Laparoscopy is a procedure that is often done as a day surgery. Most women are given general anesthesia to induce sleep and prevent pain. Through the telescope, the surgeon can see the contents of the abdomen, especially the reproductive organs. If the laparoscopy is normal, the physician can then focus the diagnostic and treatment efforts on non-gynecologic causes of pelvic pain.

You should not be afraid with laparoscopy. If the laparoscopy is abnormal and areas of endometriosis or abnormal tissue are seen these areas may be treated or biopsied during the procedure.

With regards
Sadhana

Thank you Sadhana for the reassurance.
One thing still confuses me. Is it REMOTELY possible that endo or Chronic PID could cause such a terrible amount of pain on the LEG? As a non medical person, i find that extremely hard to correlate. Because albeit i have pains in the pelvic-abdominal area, its nothing compared to the pain i feel on my thigh!
I have searched the internet, and there isn't much correlation between these two

its me again,So i went ahead and had the Lap surgery in October 2011. A few days later, the pain came back with so much rage. My doctors were perplex. A biopsy was done on the tissue sample collected and there was no sign of endometriosis.The doctors suggested that i take the Zoladex implants in december 2011 once my period starts, strangely, the period never came cos i got pregnant that month. i had a very healthy boy in Sept 2012. its been 9 months since i had my son,and my period is yet to(ie 18 months altogether without the pain). 2 days ago, the pain came back. from all indications, it is obvious that this pain has some hormonal triggers cos how do one explain the fact that without ovulation the pain never comes. help me somebody!
