Jaynie: Do you have endometriosis? The left side is where the endo can mess up the cul de sac. And, please be careful withunopposed estrogen. Is your Dr. Levy the Barbara Levy who keeps being mentioned? It's funny - last Tuesday, I woke with a bad pain in my LLP and groin, but I had diverticulosis/adhesions diagnosed there after my hysterectomy. Aspririn helps me + after I started the antibiotics pending results of CATscan, the pain got better. When I saw Dr. Reich on Wed (coincidence), he mentioned something about the left side being the difficult place because of the cul de sac and sigmoid area. I am sorry I can't remember your history. But, I was on opposed estrogen at .625mg or 2-1/2 years and my only pain during that time that was bad enough to see a doctor was on my right side and eventually it went away, thank goodness because my doctor was of no help on the pain - I still think pain is a symptom and !/2 the battle is identifying the root cause. Karen.
