Left Abdominal Pain After Removal Of Bartholin’s Cyst?
I want to ask, is it dangerous for a Bartholin’s cyst? Because there are still some left inside, after I had a Bartholin’s cyst removed 4 weeks ago, when I’m tired I often feel pain/pain under the left side of my abdomen… Thank you
Hi Merry Nath,
A Bartholin's cyst is a fluid-filled sac that occurs in the Bartholin's gland. Bartholin's gland is one of the glands in the vagina that functions to secrete lubricating fluid while having sex so that there is no wound due to penetration of the penis into the vagina. Some of the complaints that can appear in Bartholin's cysts include:
The presence of a lump in the vagina When an infection occurs in a Bartholin's cyst, there is inflammation of the Bartholin's gland (bartholinitis) which gives complaints of pain in the lump and if left unchecked it can form an abscess and can be accompanied by a fever. Left abdominal pain that is felt should be explained whether it is at the top or bottom. If the abdominal pain is at the top, it can be caused by a disturbance in the gastrointestinal tract such as dyspepsia, GERD, or inflammation of the intestines, but if it occurs at the bottom, apart from the gastrointestinal tract, abdominal pain can occur due to UTI, ovarian cysts. , uterine myoma or pelvic inflammation.
Compress the painful abdominal area using warm water to relieve pain. In addition, get enough rest and consume healthy and nutritious foods and apply a regular diet. Avoid excessive stress. You can take paracetamol to relieve pain. However, in general, Bartholin's cysts that have been evacuated do not cause abdominal pain, except for vaginal pain, especially at the beginning after evacuation of the cyst.
For pain that persists and interferes with your activities, you should consult with a gynecologist to perform a physical or supporting examination such as ultrasound to determine whether the pain you are feeling is related to a history of Bartholin cysts or is caused by other causes so that the treatment given is in accordance with the possible causes. .
I hope this information is helpful.
