Common Questions and Answers about Gas pain after hysterectomy


Avatar n tn I have tried BC pills, Lupron and I am still bleeding, very heavy, for 2-3 weeks at least. I am in p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>in all the time. I am not a baby(for the most part). The dr. told me the next step was surgery. Was is the recovery time for a hysto., how will I be out of work, etc. The dr did say it would have to be a total hysto and could not be done vaginally, because of the large fibroids. Is it possible I could come home the same day or the next morn.?

Avatar n tn I would start to feel the pain in my stomach and then I would get SEVERE rectal <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>g<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>s</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>in. My stomach would be so distended, I couldn't even put a finger on it! It feels like everything stops. Then, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> 1-5 hours, I feel "things" start moving again. Then, there is a mass exodus of air and the pressure/pain is gone. I'm also taking Protonix for reflux. I've had a colonoscopy (04' - normal), upper G.I.-normal, lower G.
Avatar n tn drink a lot of fluids and breathing through the p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>in seemed to work for me. also don't let her p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>in get out of control, take the p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>in pills as needed. This is a major surgery that may affect her physically and emotionally, be there for her to talk/vent to. Good luck to you both and soon you will be through the hard part. (it will get better!
Avatar n tn I used the massage to break up my adhesions about a year and a half <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> my complete <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span>. I had to do the bodyrolling about five or six times a year for a few years... I now have not done it in about six years. as I mentioned on my entry, the doctors were stunned that I'd cleaned things up so fully.
368844 tn?1262322947 I am pleasantly surprised at how well I am doing. No extreme p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>in. I have <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>g<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>s</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> pains in my shoulder, but they aren't overwhelming. I have been able to walk and climb the stairs to my bedroom without too much pain. I am slow, but overall, feeling pretty good. I am taking my pain meds regularly so I won't have to worry about pain as much. My family has been such a great support. advice I would give - ask for the patch if you are prone to nausea.
Avatar f tn I also had severe lower abdomen and bladder pain which began nearly a week post op. I've done alot of reading and UTI'S are very common <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span>. I experienced a real bugger of one, which took multiple antibiotics to clear. Definitely check with your doc to rule this out. I continue to have low abdominal pain, although I am sure the infection has cleared, the pain is similar to that of a bladder infection.
1070971 tn?1299617710 I know it's a few years since you posted about your bowels <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> but I too had terrible problems and <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> three more ops they told me that they had untwisted my bowel and put it back on the right side. It had been excruciating pain to deal with. That was 1998 , todate for the past two years my bowel has stopped working altogether and I now medicate to evacuate my bowels. I am convinced this is due to the problems an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> hysterectomy but of course unable to prove anything.
Avatar n tn a growth on my ovary that continued growing over 3 months. <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>in for 6 months off and on and a trip to the emergency room, with p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>in so severe it made me double over, it was found on a CaT scan that I had a good size cyst that they thought burst. When I went to my OBGYN and had a vaginal sonogram they found not a cyst that had burst but one that doubled in size from the 2 weeks prior trip to the emergency room.
Avatar f tn i had major abdominal surgery a couple of weeks ago and my surgeon would not discharge me unless i moved my bowels, so i sat in the toilet for an hour until something came out! try sitting in the toilet with a magazine or something to help you relax, if you think about pooing all the time it doesn't help. you need to relax and take it easy. give it some time, it's only been a few days since your surgery, i remember i only pooed on my fifth day.
Avatar m tn Greetings, I don't think you need to worry about pregnancy <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> if you indeed had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span>. You can always request your surgical pathoology report to confirm. Your symptoms may be related to your recent weight gain. I recommend that you follow up with your primary care physician for review and further evaluation for depression and thyroid disease both of which are common with unwanted weight gain. Best wishes!
Avatar m tn I had a total abdomen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> July 17 2014. <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>fter</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> surgery I blew up like a balloon all over. I was so distended I couldn't move. Next day my palms were white and was told I was bleeding internally. I got four blood transfusions. Then I was given another catheter and LaSIK because I now had fluid on my lungs and my oxygen was low and had trouble breathing. Then I had degenerative heart failure and had a heart moniter for 3 or 4 days. I was unable to eat and had no bowel movement yet.
1809377 tn?1316523928 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>afteran> having a complete <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> my husband and I had a much better sex life because there was no p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>in any more. Like you, I have seen some women here wonder how the removal of their cervix will effect their sex life. I wish I could tell you for sure that you will have absolutely no sexual problems. I can't, No one could tell me either before my surgery. I can tell you that I had complete trust in my Dr, just like you. He did an excellent job.
564740 tn?1306195592 1/4 inch scars ) I had this method for my hysterectomy also. what to expect...P<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>in it will hurt , sounds like you have been in p<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>in awhile. Hers how it usually works first two days your in hospital will be heavily medicated. When you come home first week is very bad. then it starts to get better each and every day. Most important advice is to be very very inactive. the less you do the quicker you heal from this surgery. 1.

But...I had surgery on Monday and I really feel great. My belly isn't really as sore as I thought it would be. My instructions are activities as tolerated. But, I am taking it easy just to be sure. I only have to miss a week of work. I can get up and down easy. No problems going to the bathroom either. So.. I would recommend this as an easy option to anyone if they get to choose.
