Greetings from a fellow resident of Stanislaus County!!
After reading your symptoms I had to reply and ask if you've been evaluated for cystocele, rectocele or enterocele.
The kind of pressure you describe can often be the result of a prolapsed bladder or even rectocele (rectal prolapse). The fact that you've had a hysterectomy, as I have, puts us at increased risk for cystocele (bladder prolapse) and prolapse of the rectum and small and large intestine. Some women report that they feel as if something is falling out.
You might want to ask your doc about these possibilities.
I'm no doc, just my .02 cents.
