Common Questions and Answers about Hysterectomy healing pain

hysterectomy

If you ovaries and uterus have both been removed the WHI study (estrogen only arm) shows an increase risk of stroke for those on HRT and no significant increase risk of heart attack. Having a hysterectomy for chronic pelvic pain does not always cure your pelvic pain. This is well documented in the literature.
Most women do experience pain after the surgery , but I have had many posters who claim they have zero or near zero pain...this does not take away from the fact that their bodies are healing pain or not,,this is major surgery.You will need to rest and take it easy..if you do take narcotics take colace along with them.

I had an abdominal hysterectomy - removing my uterus and both ovaries - including one soccer ball sized cyst and one softball sized cyst - on December 2, 2009. It is now December 23rd. One week after my surgery, my doctor removed the staples in my 7" incision. After she and the nurse left the room for me to get dressed, the incision popped open towards the bottom (although the top seemed to be healing just fine).
I knew to make sure and walk as soon as I could in the hospital, and to take the pain medicine they offered it does help healing better. Everyone is different though, but I found the hysterectomy a breeze compared to first surgery. I'm sorry for your diagnosis. Take care.
I am 5 weeks post abdominal hysterectomy and now have pain below my belly button, I have several large lumps in my abdominal area that were very bruised right after surgery. Bruises went away, lumps stayed. And I have pain that starts at the incision sight down the front of my groin area into my right thigh. Plus I have been running a low grade fever for 2 weeks. Spent one of those weeks on Augmentin.

If you are still having pain with intercourse or/and vaginal bleeding, then the source of your problem is likely gynecological. If you pain is abdominal pain unrelated to sexual activity, it could be related to your gastrointestinal (GI) system. I cannot tell you what your pain is from because abdominal/pelvic pain in young women has so many causes. The best thing for you to do is stick with your OB/Gyn and follow-up with him/her.
I also have pelvic pain after my hysterectomy 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?
Give yourself time to heal - 3 days post op is really not a lot of time for recovering from major surgery such as a hysterectomy. I had a complete hysterectomy in 1997. I would say my post op pain started to subside about 5 days or so post op, but I definitely noticed a difference in pain level (to the better) after I had my staples removed (if I remember correctly, that was done about a week or week and a half after surgery).
I had a partial Hysterectomy and two weeks after I've been having alot of pain on the leftside of my abdomen and my back. The pain doesn't go away even with narcotic medicines and the doctor says everything looks fine. Also when i get up and start walking the pain gets worse and worse. The only time it doesn't hurt that much is when I'm laying down. Also I feel on my left leg because the pain is so bad. Need answers please.
as for the back/side pain it is likely related to this. your pain during ovulation , if its ovulation. try to keep a record and see if its every other month cause you alternate the ovary that ovulates every other month. I have to wonder if you may have a cyst, it sounds possible I had ovarian cysts and they do make one have severe pain/vomit sometimes...
I saw the consultant yesterday and he was happy with my progress. Scar healing really nicely and tummy even though sometimes sore is ok. He says I have been through two traumas, firstly the operation and then the removal of the overies, and I had not forget that. I still have to take things easy for another two or three weeks, but otherwise all ok. I have now been given HRT in patch form and will see how that goes.
The tingling, and sensitivity can indicate healing of the incision site, as vascular components reconnect and get back to normal its a bit of a startle to the body, Im not as concerned for you about this as I am the lower abdominal pain.
Hi! Reasons to do a hysterectomy for fibroids include: pain, bleeding. obstruction of the ureters or pressure on other nearby organs, rapid growth suggesting malignancy. If you don't have any of these problems, then it is probably not necessary to have the uterus removed. Certainly there is no indication to take the other ovary. UNLESS there is cancer in the right ovary.
After having a complete hysterectomy my husband and I had a much better sex life because there was no pain 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.
If at all possible try to keep the ovaries or atleast one, this will help prevent you from going into surgical menopause, that hits a woman hard as we are not slowly glided into menopause a nature intends, Im glad you checked your Drs credintals good for you, smart move, If at all possible ask your surgeon if he can do the DaVinci method of hysterectomy, this is the very best, less blood loss, easier healing. About the constipation, are you taking narcotic pain meds?
So my doctor recommended a full hysterectomy. He said I would finally be relieved of all my pain. The pain that I learned to live with and knew how to deal with. I was so not ready for the aftermath of this surgery. I had begged him to keep one ovary but he said that would be a mistake. So naturally when I woke up both were gone:( now my reality has hit me straight on. I am 37 years old and I have to take hormones for the rest of my life. I've been very depressed since my surgery.
I also need to lose about 25 lbs. I was really getting into shape before my hysterectomy, but then was in so much pain before the surgery I couldn't function. It was really bad. Then the healing time. Then I got lazy and didn't want to excersise. lol After a few months I started back up again. Then last month I got really sick and had to stop again. I ended up needing my gallbladder removed, so I'm still recovering from that.
After the initial days of recovery from general anesthesia and healing I felt like I was healing fast. I returned to work and was careful, only dresses, no pants or heavy activity, but at week 3 it seemed as though I was regressing. I was seeing my OBGYN every week and he said I was healing just fine and although I was worried about one of my incisions being infected, he assured me that wasn't the case. Every time he said that it's some fluid from the stitches dissolving.
I have had 3 csections and one hysteretomy with one ovary removal and bladder lift / so a total of 4 abdominal transverse incisions. Hysterectomy was one year ago. Now I have a very large and painful ovarian mass 14cm x 13cm. I am very worried about the it all, my CA 125 was only 5, so hopeful its not cancerous, the other worry is the abdominal incision, this time it will be a large vertical incision. How does that heal? I have always had a belly which grew more after three kids.
I am a 36 year old mom of 5 who Just had a total abdominal hysterectomy on Oct 9th . I still have my ovaries but that is it. I wasn't Planing on having it that way it was hopfully going to be vaginally and laproscopic, but once they got in there I was Missing part of my cervix and things just changed. So instead of losing just the uterus ..I lost all except the ovaries. SO NOW WHAT !!! LOL... I so was not prepared for this long of a healing process ..is it really 6-8 weeks?
I finally did it. I had the hysterectomy. Now I have to deal with the grief of not being able to have children with my husband, but I don't dare cry. To sob right now would surely hurt too much either physically or emotionally. I'll put it off for as long as I can, or maybe I can remain numb long enough to look the other way until the sting has passed me by. The hollowness cancer leaves behind is dwarfed only by the never-ending threat of life ending. Yet, there in is the irony.
