Hysterectomy and muscle pain

Common Questions and Answers about Hysterectomy and muscle pain


I think your going to be happy to be out of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> once your surgery and recovery time is over. I can understand being in constant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>. It does effect your whole life. Stick to Drs orders and don't do anything for 6 weeks. Of course you don't have to lay in bed that whole time. Just take things easy. No stairs, heavy lifting or sex. Before surgery you might want to cook some meals and freeze them. Easy things that can be popped in the microwave like chili and spaghetti.
Medical studies show many increased health risks and reduced quality of life associated with ovary removal or post-hysterectomy ovarian failure. Did you know that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> and ovary removal are grossly overused and that.76% of them do not meet ACOG criteria? And the da Vinci robot is now being heavily marketed as providing a quick recovery yet the long-term negative effects occur regardless of the method of surgery. I also had a complex ovarian cyst, 9cm in size.
Can Hasimoto's cause this severe form of muscle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> all over my body?? I'm taking muscle relaxants and anit-inflammatorys twice a day with no relief. And also my endo suspected that I could have EBV virus & tested me for that -- I had mono at 15. My EBV Ab VCA, IgG level was 2786 (normal is 0-99) and my EBV Nuclear Antigen Ab, IgG level was 1104 (normal is 0-99). Does this mean anything?? No doctor is able to answer that for me nor able to give me any other answers or help. Please Help!
The symptoms you describe of neck/arm/leg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>, proximal muscle weakness and numbness in the middle/ring/pinky are more extensive than would be expected in carpal tunnel syndrome (median nerve entrapment at the wrist). Given your pain and proximal muscle weakness, I would evaluate you for an inflammatory myopathy (inflammtory cells attacking muscles).
after a week, my problems began. Off and on, I would wake up at night and feel a twisting sensation on my lower back and through out my left left. Three months later, this became permanent. About month after, it began slowly to hurt. The pain started on my lower back and ankle. When I walk, my ankles felt as if it was breaking. after two more months, the pain increased to both my thighs and wrists.
About three weeks ago I began to experience tingling in my toes and top of my left foot followed by a burning pain on the side of my calf muscle that radiates up into my hip and causes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in the lower left side of my abdomen. I only experience this pain when I begin to walk or when I stand in place for 15 to 20 minutes. I have discussed this with my doctor. He ordered an x-ray and an ultra sound for blood clots. Both were negative. Has anyone else had this experience?
but the thing is the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> and numbness reappears if I stopped the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> reliever. My question is, does the pain has to do with my hormones? do I need to take hormonal replacement pills? Will it lessen the pain on my knees as well? I dont wanna be independent on drugs specifically pain relievers..I need help..please.
My GYN told me to play around with the doses, but I haven't taken anything anymore because I feel better when I'm not on it. I constantly have stomach cramps and muscle pain in legs and dizziness.
I also have pelvic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> after my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> on June 6 2007. It is on the left side only and gets worse a the day wears on. I put ice on it and take advil but no relief. Any ideas?
I know its rather hard to do nothing, I have been there done that had my hyster in 05, one day 2 weeks after I simply folded a basket of towels and it sent me into agony, You have a hollow in your abdomen that is being filled with fat and muscle tissue, this could account for back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> also. And the body is a odd thing sometimes pain radiates to areas not expected, like you would expect abdomen to hurt. ( Im sure it does anyways) You may want to mention gallbladder to Dr.
I am 40 years old and had a hysterectomy a little over a year ago due to painful periods and heavy bleeding. I am still having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> on my right side and seems to be more intense around ovulation (still have ovaries). I also have bouts of nausea and vomiting and lower back pain on the right side as well. I have been through all the tests imaginable an still have not gotten a definite diagnosis.
c's and reconstruction of uterus and a tac up bladder and a operation on kidneys and no of these compare to the extreme back <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> and bone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> i am having ,,i am getting so aggravated with this ,,,it hurts so bad,,,,i fell and broke my tail bone 4 years ago and begged them to do a x-ray of the top of my spine below the neck and they would not do it and said i was fine it is so bad i am sick of this pain ,,,my husband can not even pop my back because it cause me severe pain,,,it literally took m
I did have some gas <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my shoulders soon after I woke in recovery. 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.
I am having this severe pain, at night mostly in my upper arms that even <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> medication and naprosin won't take away and it is only getting worse and now it is in both arms. I have it in the day time too but the pain isn't as bad as at night. At night it is on a scale of 1-10 it is like off the chart around 20 and waking me several times a night. I'm a side sleeper who can't now and even on my back if my arms are moved just right it's excruciating.
I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> on my right side since 4 weeks after my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span>. They took everything except my left ovary. MRI, CT, and blood work show everything is normal. I have done physical therapy off and on for three years. It gives some relief temporary but the pain always comes back. When it is bad it effects my whole body on the right side, from my shoulder to my hip. It has gotten worse the last few months. My bladder has fallen. So now wear a pessary.
I have been advised not to try herbals due to my CVID, aenemia and general rotten condition. My joint and muscle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> is crippling, hot flashes, depression and insomnia severe. I think I am having a severe reaction to the progestin I am taking, can't sleep despite Ambien and can no longer manage to go to yoga. The pain is crippling and not even relieved by acucpuncture or narcotic pain relievers. Can progestin magnify menopause pain to this degree?
I was diagnosed with Stage 1 Ovarian Cancer in Nov 04. Had a total abdominal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> and then did 6 sessions chemo with combined Taxol and carboplatin. The side affects can be pretty distressing, nausea (although the anti-emetics drugs have gotten much better), feeling sick, food tasting metallic, tired all the time, hair loss.
I have been having the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my left ovary since the surgery and it has been 2 years and they are now deciding well this is what we have to do . I wish if they were going to do it they would have done it all at the same time. I just hope you know what you want done and don't let anyone talk you into something cause in the long run you may have been right all along .Best of luck to you all !!
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>, I have had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my left shoulder and neck area for a week now and it has not gotten any better. The pain is like one I would get when I stretched too much, you know one of those pulled muscle pains. Now I have a similar pain in the chest area, but more of having the wind knocked out of you but still a pain. It is not like the angina attacks but it still is a pain that hurts and has not gone away.
Hello - thanks for asking your question. You note lumbar and flank <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> after having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span>. Colonoscopy was normal. Please note that without examining you it is impossible to say what is going on. As I am not a surgeon, my experience in post-op hysterectomy complications is limited. in my internal medicine practice, I have not had this particular scenario before. There are several considerations. Adhesions may be a possibility.
I only took off for 2 weeks and I am now having severe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> like bad crampls and a coming and going <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> in my back. It actually makes me double over at times. I have a orthpedic appt. on Friday but my husband seems to think it might be scar tissue. I am very type A and not used to being out of commission so I didn't rest likeI should have after my surgery. I am not sure what to do but muscle relaxer don't even touch the pain.
My wife had a total <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>hysterectomy</span> performed on 12/20/10 and is continuing to have significant abdominal and back pain which is mostly unaffected by her prescription of hyrdrocodone. She also takes Tramadol 2-3 times daily for cervical pain and has been taking that regularly for about 2 years. My question is this: would it be appropriate and safe to add a muscle relaxant such as cyclobenzaprine or metaxalone to the current meds to decrease her subsequent spasming?
for not wanting to test for Lyme after you found a tick on him and discovered a rash and fever!?!? Good For You for insisting! My son's knee was in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> and inflammed and he had a fever. They thought he had fluid on the knee and did surgery to drain it. He went thru 4 days of different tests and the unnecessary surgery before they figured out it was Lyme. Thankfully he seems OK even though it was an advanced stage. He doesn't require follow-up.
I now have headaches all the time, fatigue (I have caught myself falling asleep at work), muscle spasms, IBS, depression, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> all over, and now (for the last 6 months) I have had SEVERE muscle tensing in my legs and arms. I have to actually mentally relax them much of the time. they are not twitches I have them as well, these muscles will be tense for several seconds or longer. I am scared. Not sure if it is MS, Lupus, ALS, or nothing.
Since then she has experienced Blood in her stool two or three times a week, numbness in her finger, tingling in her feet, bumps on her breasts, a recurring foul odor from under her breasts (even after bathing and washing them several times a day), and gripping muscle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> with soreness after <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> subsides. These symptoms are not on a regular basis, and they don't all happen at the same time.
I also lost 13 lbs during the course of procedure and other than minor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> and puffy in abdomenal area and tired, that seems to be the only discomfort relating to surgery. (I am 5 9", 140lbs.) However, the back pain has kept me up several nights and I have resorted to using a cane which helps tremendously. Also, is bilateral lower back paina side effect of a hysterectomy and will it eventually subside? As with previous posts, I appreciate your good counsel!
I've started having hot flashes, skin burning and tingling, severe anxiety and muscle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>. I haven't missed any of my medicine. Why is it doing this? Will I have to increase my dose? Someone please help.
drink a lot of fluids and breathing through the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> seemed to work for me. Also don't let her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> get out of control, take the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span> 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!
It is associated with lower levels of progesterone and wildly fluctuating levels of estrogen which can cause breast fullness and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pa<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span></span>. I have read that taking some evening primrose oil (EPO) can ease the breast tenderness. Some say adding some vitamin B6 and vitamin E to the EPO makes it even more effective.
