782368 tn?1244858067 it increases the amount of air you swallow and can contribute to gas pain-that was the best advice I've ever gotten after I had my children by c-section as well for my LAVH. Use a pillow to splint your belly in the hospital and at home for when you have to cough, laugh, etc. All you do is hold it against your belly as snug as you can stand it-it helps keep tension of your incisions and will help decrease the pain.

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 pain 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 f tn I had a hysterectomy 8 days ago and i have serious gas pain and pain when i go to the bathroom. i have not been able to sleep more than 2 hours a time. What can I do to make me feel better.
Avatar n tn I would start to feel the pain in my stomach and then I would get SEVERE rectal gas pain. My stomach would be so distended, I couldn't even put a finger on it! It feels like everything stops. Then, after 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 I used the massage to break up my adhesions about a year and a half after my complete hysterectomy. 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.
Avatar f tn You need to go for blood test, urine test, histopathological examination and Ultrasound Pelvis. After hysterectomy, pain is going to persist for some weeks after the procedure but it is due to procedure pain. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
1394194 tn?1282575016 The types of sensations are bound to change and may take some adjustment, but that also occurs after childbirth. Many women still enjoy sex after a hysterectomy, some more so due to the absence of abdominal pain. You sound like you are going through adjustments to having decreased sex hormones. What you might consider is talking to your doctor about hormonal therapy for menopausal women to see if they might manage your symptoms better.
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 after a hysterectomy. 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 after hysterectomy but I too had terrible problems and after 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 after hysterectomy but of course unable to prove anything.
Avatar n tn a growth on my ovary that continued growing over 3 months. After pain for 6 months off and on and a trip to the emergency room, with pain 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 At age 47, I decided to have a my uterus removed via a hysterectomy due to extensive bleeding, anemia, gastro intestinal issue, acid reflux issues and enlarged uterus with extensive fibroids.

368844 tn?1262322947 I am pleasantly surprised at how well I am doing. No extreme pain. I have gas 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 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 after a hysterectomy if you indeed had a hysterectomy. 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!

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.
Avatar m tn I had a total abdomen hysterectomy July 17 2014. After 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 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.
Avatar n tn I had a vaginal hysterectomy two days ago and came home after one night in the hospital. Shouldn't I have been given an antibiotic to come home with?
Avatar n tn I know this is responding to an old post, but I noticed someone said no PMS symptoms after hysterectomy. That is not true at all. Although the symptoms are very different. If one still has two functioning ovaries you will still face the (EMOTIONS, CRAVINGS, HEADACHES, SORE BOOBS ETC). I had a hysterectomy a bit over 6 months ago. For the first 3 months after the hysterectomy I was fine (but I didn't realize my ovaries had been asleep I guess). Oh did they wake up!!
