cassandra - March 28

I had retreival 3 days ago and am going in for transfer later today. I have had bad pains in my lower abdomen since the surgery. It hurts when I walk, sit, then stand. As the day goes on I start to feel a little better, but this morning, after going to the bathroom, it really hurts. I am wondering if my bowel was damaged during surgery. Is this common? I am definately asking the doctor today but would like your opinion. If so, how long until it heals? I don't remember any pain like this for my last retreival.Thank you for responding. cassandra

I had pains too. The pain came a couple of days after the retreival. I was told to take a lot of electrolytes and protien. Your body accumalates water. Beleive it on not my diet for 3 days was getorade and chicken . I was asked to drink a gallon of electrolyte. This prevent Ovarian hyper stimulation. I still get stiches I had my transfer day before yesterday. I was told because that my ovaries are still sensitive and enlarged.

empty your bladder as often as possible and call the doctor you may be going throu ovarian hyper than if its bad they will IV you.

I have no way of knowing why you are experiencing significant pain after retrieval. In the absence of infection, I can only hypothesize blood in your pelvis, or cysts on your ovaries.
Good luck.
