I'm 3 weeks post op a hysterectomy and i'm cramping and bleeding - is this normal?

I'm 3 weeks post op a hysterectomy and i'm cramping and bleeding - is this normal?

8 weeks post op hysterectomy everything but ovaries. Breasts swell and hurt ALL THE TIME. Not just with ovulation. Normal? Permanent? Why??!

Post op: It is not unusual to get hormonal changes after major surgery. I think it would be best to talk to your doctor about this. Most likely it is temporary and will get better. Hope this helps you ...Read more

How long after hysterectomy can it take for vaginal cuff stitches to dissolve? I'm 11 1/2 weeks post op and still have some.

Depends: That can partly depend on the type of suture that was used with your hysterectomy. The most common types are usually pretty much dissolved by 90 days. However, if you are not having any bleeding or irregular discharge, there should be nothing to worry about. ...Read more

Sharp pain after khole s-total hysterectomy 1 week post op...near incision lower mid One. Not constant but double ova a times, have been ok till now?

Prob ok: With that type of hyster you have a deep layer stitch just under the belly button to prevent you getting a hernia. this can cause some irritation until it dissolves, and some blood seeped into the surrounding tissue causes irritation. It will dissolve. be gentle in your activity. you can use a low setting heating pad alternating with some ice if it bothers you, or just some motrin or tylenol. ...Read more
