Absolutely not!: Any kind of bleeding, more abdominal pain, or things that seem abnormal could be a sign of complications of surgery. When uterus was removed (hysterectomy), top of the vagina was sewn shut. Unless there is a problem, there should be no bleeding from your vagina. Danger signs = weakness, fainting, paleness, fever, or a very tender belly should mean a trip to the er. Call your surgeon asap! ...Read more

Is anal sex ok 3 weeks post op supracervical hysterectomy. Kept both ovaries and cervix. Scared to have vaginal penetration?
Ask the surgeon: The restrictions that your surgeon gave you post op for the length of time that you should not insert anything into the vagina should also apply to anal sex. Typically surgeons recommend 4-6 weeks without intercourse or any foreign objects in the vagina. If your surgeon recommended longer or shorter, then that same length of time applies to anal sex. ...Read more

Definitely not: If your symptoms have been ongoing for the last 5 weeks, then I would think that indeed the surgery is somehow related to these symptoms. I would recommend that you see an infectious diseases doctor who can help figure this out. There are other potential causes for flu like symptoms that may not relate to the hysterectomy- but I would probably start there. ...Read more

8 weeks post op hysterectomy everything but ovaries. Breasts swell and hurt ALL THE TIME. Not just with ovulation. Normal? Permanent? Why??!
Contact your surgeon: Even though your ovaries are still present, the amount of circulating hormone may be disproportionate with estrogen only being secreted. This happens when ovulation is not ongoing and able to produce progesterone to balance the "equation" resulting in breast swelling. Contact your GYN surgeon and find out what is going on in your case. ...Read more

I am 2.5 weeks post op (full hysterectomy except right ovary) - how long do I have to wait to have an orgasm without penetration?
Depends: Have you had a routine 2 week post operative check? If everything was normal at that visit then you can have an orgasm. Typically, doctors like to examine you 2 weeks after surgery to check for any problems (fevers, signs of infection). For a major surgery like you had, I usually recommend waiting 4 weeks before penetration intercourse. Masturbation/orgasm is fine now if you have no problems. ...Read more
I am post op a total hysterectomy and am so bloated that I have gained 10 lbs during the operation. Is this normal? I am about 28 hours post op
Swelling: An operation is a traumatic event. Controlled, but traumatic. The body responds to injury by swelling, and abdominal surgery can affect the whole body even though the actual injury is only in the abdomen. Therefore, all organs if the body can "swell", and that retained fluid can increase you weight. It should better within the next week it so. If you think something is wrong, call your surgeon! ...Read more
