    I saw a few posts about people having pains in their butt. I went to 20 doctors concerning rectal pain that was so intense it was almost dibilitating. The pain was in the tailbone area. This has been many years ago! It ticks me off to think about all the money, time and quacks I seen. One actually said my bung hole was to tight and this was causing the pain! He sent me in to surgery to have my bung stretched! He was a so- called top notch doctor at a university hospital. hey when you are in pain you will do anything that might help! anyways, I finally found a doctor who told me I had endometreossis (spelling???) he did lazer surgery, said I was full of the stuff at the back of my uterus near the tail bone. This has been 10 years ago now. I have gone back in for this harmless procedure 3 times when the pain returns. After the surgery NO MORE BUTT PAIN!!!! just thought I would share with those who are having this problem. Ya just never no where the answer lies.

    Glad you posted this~ I have been one of the people here complaining of the butt pain~(yup i'm guilty of that)
    What stood out here is the fact that I've been battling Endometriosis for a long time.I've had a few surgerys(lapro)to remove as much each time as they could.Well...I've complained to my GYNO about tailbone pain that is really bothersome and she acted like it did'nt make sense to her that I'd be having butt pain!!Like the butt pain is'nt related to the endo! Thats why I complain here because others here have the same pain so I thought maybe its the FM??? Now I don't know what to think~ I will say- that around my area,the drs do not specialize in Endo.so the 2 drs that have done my surgerys in the past....probably really are'nt getting it all.I know after my last surgery the dr said that she had to leave behind a couple growths that were to dangerous to remove.One on my colon and one running over a ureter. She did say that alot was found in the backside of my uterus,on ligaments that support the back,and on the culdesac?? I'm telling ya Drs can be total idiots!! They act like your an alien when you have certain symptoms.....but the symptoms are real and are reason for an explanation.but half of them don't have an explanation because they're dumb-a**es!!!we have to figure it out for ourselves~ I think once they get their license to practice they stop learning new info. I think alot of us here are just as smart if not smarter! How long are you painfree after each surgery?? just curious. I had one last august and I'm hurting pretty good already!!!Oh the joys!!
    Thanks!
    Regards,

    I have no uterus or fallopian tubes and haven't had for many, many years. I had cancer of the cervix when I was 19.
    My butt pain is caused by spinal stenosis, joint arthropathy and numerous bulging discs.
    I don't know which is worse! I am so sorry you had to endure the procedure to stretch your bum! That sounds like a horror movie gone bad...bless your heart!
    I am glad you know the cause now and can treat the pain effectively.
    Love,
    Kady

    Glad it helped you tho.I know for sure that is not my problem(no uterus).
    My pain seems to be just at end of spine where tailbone joins.So far nothing has been seen-and nothing helps!!
    Oh well-I havn't given up yet.
    thanks for your info anyway.

    Is this the butt pain (anal pain) that all of a sudden just comes on and for no reason puts you in the floor for about 15-20 minutes and then it goes away for a few weeks or a month? It's like all of a sudden you sitting wherever and this pain senstaion starts in your anus and then it gets worse and worse and worse till your in the floor holding yourself in such shaky major pain and you can't do nothing unitl it subsides. Then it's over and you pass gas. Is this what your talking about? I'm scared because I to have had this since 06-2002 and that is also around the time my FMS started. PLEASE WRITE BACK AND RESPOND!!! Thank you Pamela

    mine is actually in my butt cheek, not near the rectum at all. Mine is from spinal problems only. I hope Judywhit will reply and ease your mind on this, if she can. I hope your problem isn't too serious.
    Love and empathy,

    I have gotten the shoting pains in the rectum also and Dr. says this is result of my endo too. But, the pain that I mainly experienced was like a pulling throbbing pain in the tailbone area. Dr says I have lots of scare tissue in that area from many years of endo. After my surgerys I went on the birthcontrol pill to subdue the endo from coming back. I was very lucky to find a specalist in this area. Read all you can about endo and you will find that it is especially bothersome in the rectrum. You can even have it AFTER you have your uterus removed- dr says it is like a cancer and spreads everywhere! Hope you all feel better! sure would look into the endo issue. There is a dr. Redwine in Oregon that is huge and publishes a newsletter on endo. Perhaps he has a website. He is the one who got me to looking for a endo specialist. The rectum pain he speaks about was the key!
    TANDY!!!! I just reread your message. That is where all my endo was located "that darn old culdesac!" Hmmmm....tell your dr. to lazar that darn stuff out of there.

    Thats the area that it keeps coming back!!My endo that is.The one lady dr that I just started seeing for the pain there,said she could'nt figure it out!!!DUH!... well we have and we're not Drs,....yet~I know i'd have to travel pretty far to get a specialist for this.This area has nothing!! Its funny too that whenever I've had a internal exam,or a pap done...I always get that pain again for a week or more! Thanks for all the info.
    best regards,
    Tracey
