Hysterectomy healing scar

Common Questions and Answers about Hysterectomy healing scar

hysterectomy

I have never been able to lay on my stomach because the pressure hurts too much. The scar and the area around the scar for about an inch or so on each side is hard. This feeling also extends inward. It feels like I'm carrying a weight in my abdomen. I know many women who have had like surgeries and their scars are soft and pliable. Mine is heavy and hard and seems to weigh my abdomen downward. What is my trouble? Adhesions? Abnormal growth?
Hysterectomy wounds can sometimes separate superficially, like yours did. If this happens in my patients, I generally go to once daily wet to dry dressing changes, but some surgeons prefer twice daily changes. The wound slowly heals from the bottom up. Depending on your skin type, the healed scar may be slightly larger (wider) than if your incision healed without the dressing changes. Dr.
Also I still get pain on the incision once in awhile. My gyno told me it could be my scar tissue not healing right inside. And also today and on sunday I bled very little but i'm cramping alot. What does this mean? I stop taking my estrogen pills since the beginning cause the side effects said higher risk of heart attack. My dads family side all his siblings died of heart attacks under the age of 50. So I didnt want to take any chances. Can you plz tell me what could be my problem? Thanks!

I just had hysterectomy 7 weeks ago.
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.
I had a horizontal incision, bikini to belly button only 7 wks ago, this was to remove large oc tumour I am being reopened on the same scar for my full hysterectomy, is this going to be heaps worse?????
Has anyone experienced this? I had a total adominal hysterectomy 8 weeks ago. Recovery went generally well, but about 4th week I began to have sharp needle type pain, tingling, sensitivity to touch on my stomach above the incision. Also, pressure and pain on the lower right side of my stomach. I saw my dr for post op. She pretty much said she had no clue what it was. I've gone back to work now and these symtoms are painful. Any clues?
I am seeing my GYN tomorrow to make an apt to have a partial hysterectomy. I have seen a lot of the posts out there, but I would like to know what I can experiece post up... recovery time... discomforts... how long will it take for my body to get back to my new normal self, how long it will take for me to have sex again (it's been over 5 months)!!!
I had the option of them just taking my ovaries and tubes or doing a total hysterectomy. One of the Dr's. recommended the total hysterectomy as I have several fibroids. The main Dr. (this is a teaching hospital - I've never had so many people in the room!) said it will extend the surgery by an hour and she didn't really offer an opinion other than to say if it is cancer they will take everything and do staging etc.
I had a total abdominal hysterectomy over seven months ago. My incision scar has not healed. It develops "puss pockets" which drain and bleed frequently. Antiobiotics have already been tried.
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.
Im going to send you a private message
You could consider medical therapy such Mirena IUD, Lystedia etc... However hysterectomy is definitive. I am not certain how hysterectomy may or may not effect you gastric bypass being that I am not able to review your operative report. Perhaps this question is better addressed with your prior surgeon.
I had a hysterectomy 3 1/2 weeks ago, removing uterus and right ovary due to very large ovarian cyst. My gyn did not remove my left ovary indicating it was healthy, due to my age (37) and not wanting to put me into menopause. All has been fine until approximately 1 week ago. I began having severe pains on my right side. Questioning my gyn, he felt that due to the work that was performed on my right side, the ovary being remove, it was just normal healing........
Hi , Thought I,d just say I experience similar symptoms when I had my hysterectomy . Like you I had a bikini cut and my ovaries were left intact. I,m not sure if its related to scar tissue and healing which obviously takes a while. Don,t do too much and take it easy .
No help. I just thougt mabe I was still healing from the hyster so kept waiting for it to improve on its on. 9 wks post op the pain was worse. The longer I'm on my feet the worse the pain is . Went back to the gyno who checked my urine and sure enough there was no infection. He suspected IC but gave me URELLE to try. It has seemed to help but still when I'm on my feet constantly (I own a Restarunt!) the pain is back.
I'm starting to think that from all the years of agony it might be best to get a full hysterectomy which might happen anyway depending on what they find when they go in. Just not sure what to think about any of it? My last surgery the doctor knicked a large vein and didnt seal it properly, long story short I had two surgeries and lost all my blood volume, now I cringe at the thought of going back in..
May will be 2 years since I had my hysterectomy with ovary removal. They took everything. I had stage 4 endo. I did 6 months of lupron. Now I'm having lower right cramping, almost stabbing pain at times. I tend to have a little spotting every now and then. I have been to the dr and she told me it was bc they took my ovaries, and thats why i have the cramping. Now I'm not a dr. at all. But does that make any sense what so ever?
I have had two C-Sections, tubal, and now the hysterectomy and they have cut along the same scar each time so my guess is they didnt get it all because of all the scar tissue. Right now I have a cold and when I cough I can actually feel exactly where it is. I am calling my Dr back again tomorrow to get another referral. I am retired military so I have been bounced around from Dr to Dr over the past year.
I've had 3 c-sections; a partial hysterectomy (just my uterus removed); and now a total hysterectomy (my ovaries removed) due to cysts. When I had my ovaries removed, they told me that my intestines were glued together with my ovaries and my scar tissue. They also told me that this may also occur again. I was pain free for a few months after the surgery. But, now the pain has returned and I don't know what to do. I live in Japan on a military base. I feel like I am falling apart.
Ladies I am so glad I am not the only person with this weird pain. I was 4 months preg. (22 yoa) and the Dr removed cysts from my left ovary; I delivered normal birth and had no problems. I formed bigger cysts and in 2005 had a hyster at 35 yoa (one of the best things I did) removing left ovary and uterus. I kept my cervix and right ovary. When seeing my gyne he told me (vaginal ultrasound) I have scar tissue on my right ovary.
I had a partial hysterectomy on 1/13/05..because i was experiencing bleeding that lasted 2-3 weeks at a time..not that it was heavy all the time or that i hurt constantly..but my emotions and moods were one big roller coaster... i couldnt take birth control pills to control it because i have Raynaulds Syndrome.. and auto-immune disease which is increased if you take hormones such as estrogen. I had a thermal ablation surgery done a few months prior to my hyst but it only made things worse.
I've gone for the lipodissolve on my abdomen since my pregnancy, hysterectomy surgery, and scar left me with stubborn fat that diet and exercise won't cure. Hopefully, it will kill the fat cells and not just remove the triglycerides from them.
Hello, I was wondering if any of you all have been put on hormones after a total hysterectomy. My doctor says there are too many risks and I don't need them...I am 38. I don't know what to expect here 2 weeks after surgery, I keep waiting for a hotflash or something weird to happen. :) What can happen if I don't take them? I've had nightmares of growing hair on my face or my voice getting manly. Are my fears real? Can anyone share their experience or knowledge about hormones?
I had a laparoscopic supracerival hysterectomy. The time healing was great, but there was a complication. If you are NOT having your cervix removed, you may still have periods. My cervix is still intact and some of the uterus was left behind resulting in all that area not properly sealed up. So, although the odds are against it, I highly recommend you confirm your doctor has Laparascopic experience, a lot of it at that, and all your questions are answered in terms you can understand.
I had a total hysterectomy in 2001 due to endo.I had hot flashes and other menapause symptoms for about a year.I did not take any HRT and they went away .I recently had to have a kidney removed do to tumor (non cancer)and the hot flashes are now back.Can this be from menapause,or side affect of surgery?How long can these symptoms last?
