Pain, belles swollen, 12 weeks after ectopic

Post by Bekadeeboo123 »

12 weeks since ectopic pregnancy

Had right tube removed because of ruptured at 6 weeks pregnant I think

Still very bloated, very painful and appeared to have a lump in right groin aswell as back pain

Iv used BV treatment, cystitis drinks, thrush treatments which was over the counter, been to the doctors for more thrush treatments as I couldNt take this anymore

Urine came back fine, being transferred for a scan when letter comes though.

In real pain with swollen belly look very pregnant! Just want to know if anyone has experienced this swelling so long after key hole surgury I can hardly walk!

Dear Bekadeeboo123,
I am so sorry to hear of your ectopic pregnancy and loss and continued concerns.
Unfortunately I am not medically trained so cannot give you specific advice on your symptoms.
You are right though that it is unusual for symptoms to continue for this long following surgery, most symptoms tend to settle around 6 weeks.
We have more information on recovery from ectopic pregnancy here- ... pregnancy/

You have done the right thing in speaking to your GP and I am glad to hear that they have organised a scan. I would advise speaking to them again if your symptoms worsen or is you start to develop temperatures as these could be signs of worsening infection.

I hope you get answers soon but don't be afraid to seek medical advice again if symptoms are worsening.

Sending much love and warm hugs,
Karen x
