"It's a stabbing pain and it aches a lot," Michelle, who has a history of ovarian cysts, shares. She is also concerned this health issue may be passed down to her daughter.
OB/GYN Dr. Thais Aliabadi performed a full gynecological exam on Michelle, including an ultrasound to check her ovaries for a cyst. The OB/GYN determined her ovaries "looked perfect" and also checked all her other organs.
Dr. Aliabadi believes the cause of Michelle's pain is adhesions, which are bands of scar-like tissue that form inside your abdomen and can occur after surgery. The OB/GYN says another surgery might be necessary to correct the issue, but explains the outpatient procedure can be done easily and the adhesions can be cut and the pain is usually resolved very quickly.
The Doctors share adhesions are quite common, especially in pelvic surgery cases. Dr. Aliabadi notes, "Any type of chronic pain is not normal. Painful periods are not normal, and any type of pain should be worked up." She says Michelle's pelvic pain issue can likely be treated quickly and her recovery would be quick.
Dr. Aliabadi encourages anyone experiencing unexplained and consistent pain -- especially in the pelvic area -- to speak with their doctor about it.
