  • Q&A with Australian Health Practitioners

    Why do I still experience lower abdo pain in addition to lower back and hip pain post successful cervical cancer surgery?

    Last year, I was diagnosed with high-grade cin3 and high-grade hpv. I had surgery to have the polyp removed in august and then a follow-up pap test, which was negative 6 months later. And then will have another follow up pap next month. I recently found out my grandmother had polyps for many years but dont know what, if anything, was in them. She did how ever pass away from a tumor that was in her bladder. What i would like to know is what should i be expecting my gyno to do after the next pap if it is clear as i still get lower abdo pain all the time in addition to lower back and hip pain. What's going on?

    You want to get the all clear with respect to the cancer.  However, your back and hip pain may be a separate issue and be "musculoskeletal" in origin - which means it is coming from the discs, joints, ligaments, discs etc.

    A McKenzie Method trained physio would be able to perform a mechanical assessment to find out whether the pain is "musculoskeletal" in origin.  Hope this helps.  (To find out more about the McKenzie Method - GOOGLE it)
