Pain In The Left Lower Abdomen Spread To The Waist Area It’s Been 3 Years?
Greetings doctor, I’m a mother of 3 children, 32 years and 6 months. Since before the birth of my second child I felt quite disturbing pain in the left lower abdomen. Feel a little lump that if pressed will feel pain spread to the left waist area. But the lump is insignificant, not hard. The pain is not permanent. Just disappear. Pain is felt when a contraction is about to give birth, when a hard bowel movement (constipation) and sometimes when having menstruation. It doesn’t always hurt but it has been going on for 3 years. When I was examined by a doctor obgyne (because I thought it had something to do with the uterus) and there was no problem with transvaginal ultrasound. Approximately what should I do and what the doctor related to my problem. thanks.
Pain in the left abdomen can be caused by various causes. Do the lumps that you feel persist or disappear? Do lumps get bigger when straining?
From your condition, a lump in the lower left abdomen accompanied by pain disappearing may arise due to an inguinal hernia. Hernia is a condition where there is a decrease in organs in the body and sticking to the bottom. Hernias can occur in the gastrointestinal tract, hernias occur when the tissue under the digestive tract is not strong. Hernias often occur in people who strain excessively (for example during childbirth or hard bowel movements), or in people who often lift heavy loads. Hernias can cause symptoms such as the appearance of lumps that arise, lumps are more obvious when straining, and can be accompanied by digestive disorders such as difficult bowel movements. Besides hernias that are stuck in connective tissue can also cause pain in the lower abdomen. Hernias require further examination by a doctor, and require surgery if a hernia does occur.
But other than that the situation that you experience can also be caused by other causes such as:
Non-specific lymph node inflammation
Therefore, to ascertain the cause of your situation, you should check directly with the doctor. Surgical specialist, so that the doctor can examine your situation further. Maybe later additional tests will be carried out such as blood tests, ultrasound, or endoscopy if necessary.
