4 weeks ago I went to the ER because I could hardly move because my stomach had been hurting so bad for 2 days and I had a fever. I was sent home after with a ruptured cyst on my ovaries, that had caused some internal bleeding. It continued to hurt, but a new symptom arose. It hurts badly to sit or get back up. Shooting pain goes up through my rear to about halfway up my stomach. The pain is very deep, and it hurts to make a bowel movement, sneeze, and run. Appendicitis was suspected, but they could not find my appendix. Is this normal after a ruptured cyst or should I take this more seriously and go back to the ER?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The pain persisting and getting worse is not normal at all. You should consider visiting a gynecologist at the earliest to have follow-up examination and scan to rule out peritonitis, pelvic inflammation/infection, adhesions etc, which could be the cause for your pain. You might need to go ahead with a laparoscopic examination and excision of causative lesions if endometriosis, adhesions etc. are suspected.
