Hello Meta, Thank you for the question.
Myoma is the growth of benign tumors in the uterus, which can occur inside or outside the uterus, which until now the cause is not known with certainty but is thought to be related to an increase in the hormone estrogen. This condition causes sufferers to experience heavy menstrual bleeding and severe menstrual pain. In addition, sufferers can also experience pain during intercourse, back pain, frequent urination, constipation, and in severe cases can cause infertility or miscarriage.
About 80-90% of women who experience myoma, with myoma removal surgery, complaints of pain during menstruation experienced will be reduced. Myoma that has been removed through surgery cannot re-grow, however, there is a possibility of new myoma appearing in different areas. Complaints of pain during menstruation that you feel can be caused by the appearance of new myomas but can also be caused by other conditions such as:
surgical complications such as infection, damage to surrounding organs (bladder or intestine), scarring / attachment of organs
Due to limited information regarding the location of the myoma, the severity of the previous condition, and the details of the operation you are undergoing, I cannot provide further explanation. Furthermore, to ascertain the cause of these symptoms requires an examination by a doctor directly. If this complaint is very disturbing you should immediately re-consult with a specialist obstetrics and gynecologist who handle you before. The doctor will re-examine you to find out if the complaint is caused by a surgical complication or other medical condition. After making sure, the doctor will determine the appropriate treatment. To help reduce pain, you can do a warm compress on the area of the abdominal pain or consume pain relievers such as paracetamol.
Hopefully this information helps you.
