On hrt having pain kidney area and under rib on left hand side
« on: November 08, 2018, 08:37:42 PM »

Hi all,

I am on yet estrogel and progesterone....

Every day is different and mostly hell  to get through

Have noticed for a while getting pain in the left kidney area and also across the front of the rib cage from right to left just under the breast plate

Pain and aches come and go in varying degrees

Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing these pains ?

Also fyi I had an hysterectomy  14 years ago with ovaries removed

Big hugs

Maybe go you should go to the docs and get checked.
Could be a water/kidney infection?
Sounds like your hrt is not suiting you too, I thought women who had a hysterectomy
didnít need to take progesterone? Or have I got that wrong?
If I were you, Iíd go to doctors. You have nothing to lose, only to gain.....

Good luck.....xx

Hello, I have just posted about side/flank pain which is in my right kidney area, it's not shifting and is worse some days than others. It's like a dull ache rather than instense stabbing pain. I've been to the GP (probably sick of me by now!) and had a blood test to test kidney function but I've no idea what to expect with that as I don't have infection symptoms at all. Just this ache.  I am not on any HRT, just the mini pill. If it's been going on for a while go and see your GP to put your mind at rest.x

Hi jillydoll

Thanks for the reply pain has been on an off mostly more on recently since dropping my hormone levels and increasing them again as estradiol was high...

Ref progesterone for hyst women there are mixed views on this where we are more than just a womb.

I find I cannot take estradiol without prog to help balance it

Unlikely to be a kidney infection....not sure if more to with adrenal gland  as struggling to provide hormones...

In past cortisol was sky high now low and normal....not sure if they are struggling

Unfortunately my gps  are pretty much to useless

Could it be a pulled muscle?
Pain from a muscle pull can travel to different areas as we compensate our posture and so forth.
I still think you should go and get checked out at the docs, like Kinola67 says, just to set your mind at rest.....

Good luck.... keep us informed......
