I have severe back pain immediately after my hysterectomy. Is this normal?

I have severe back pain immediately after my hysterectomy. Is this normal?

It can be: A hysterectomy is a major surgery and pain is expected after surgery. If it was done via an open incision (large incision) then it can be more painful. If done laparoscopically or robotically then much less pain is expected. Severe pain can be normal but many complications can happen after surgery such as infection and bleeding that can also cause this pain and you should call or see your doctor. ...Read more

Seek evaluation.: If you are having persistent back pain, then you should be evaluated by a physician. Hysterectomy and oopherectomy do not normally cause chronic back pain. Also, I commend you for taking vitamin supplementation, but if you are vitamin d deficient then try a vitamin d supplement. ...Read more

Scar tissue create back pain after hysterectomy?

Scar tissue create back pain after hysterectomy?

Back pain: If the surgery is recent, then scar tissue is far from the cause of the back pain. It is most likely the position of the stirups during surgery that can cause some back pain after surgery. Especially if surgery was a long one. Anyone who has their legs in that position will have some back discomfort after surgery. If it persists, and over the counter meds don't help. See your physician for tremet. ...Read more

Why am I having back pain & my legs burning & hurting after a complete hysterectomy 3 weeks later?

Why am I having back pain & my legs burning & hurting after a complete hysterectomy 3 weeks later?

I do not know: It may have nothing do with the TAH, or it may. Possibly lying on the operating table for the time of surgery caused an irritation of the muscle groups in your low back causing an increasing inflammation, which is now irritating the nerves and causing your symptoms, or after the surgery, you were less mobile and the back pain started from that. Either way, get an eval to see what the issue is. ...Read more

I had a partial hysterectomy last year I started to bleed this morning with a horrible back pain is this normal. Just uterus removed?

No: If you had your whole uterus removed this is definitely not normal. You need to be seen immediately either at your doctor's office, an urgent care clinic, or an emergency room. The back ache could be because of a kidney stone or a severe bladder infection. If the bleeding is rectal it could be diverticulitis, colitis, or colon cancer. If it is vaginal that is also very worrisome-nothing left to bleed ...Read more

60 years, she has made hysterectomy 1year ago and she has to do CT scan for control, but she has back pain. What is necessary to do bone scan or CT scan?

Please clarify ques: I'm not understanding exactly what your question is, however, a bone scan is a test of choice when looking for deep-seated infections in the bone called osteomyelitis or the bone density of a person who may have either osteoporosis or osteomalacia. If back pain is being diagnosed with a ct scan then, you are looking for either a compressed nerve or some other bony defect that causes pain. ...Read more

I had a partial hysterectomy. Can I still get pid? I have lower back pain, fishy odor and a discharge and been feeling feverish and run down.

I had a partial hysterectomy. Can I still get pid? I have lower back pain, fishy odor and a discharge and been feeling feverish and run down.

PID is not likely: If your cervix and uterus were removed and your vaginal vault healed well and is closed, a bacterial pelvic inflammatory disease is practically impossible. If your cervix was left in place, you may experience signs and symptoms of vaginitis and cervicitis which may mimic PID. A simple Gyn exam and a careful examination of the "fishy discharge" should answer your question and guide your treatment. ...Read more

I have lower abdominal pain an lower back pain sometimes its unbearable. I had a partial hysterectomy. I also get nauseous what could it be?

See your gyne MD: There are a number of possibilities, depending in part, what the reason was for your partial hysterectomy and when it was done. While possibly not related at all, your gynecologist should evaluate this initially, with a physical exam and ultrasound. This could be a problem with the uterus (recurrence), the ovary, adhesions from surgery, urinary tract infection or a gastrointestinal issue. ...Read more

GI, musculoskeletal: When you say complete hysterectomy, I assume you mean that your ovaries were removed as well. The pain may be coming from your intestines, or from a bladder problem/infection, possibly from deep internal muscle stretching; or a hernia. Could also be some adhesions or scar tissue pulling on nerves in the pelvis causing pain. ...Read more

6 mths post hysterectomy. Lower abdomenal and mid back pain on right side. Pain is horrible. I went to ER and after CT and blood work I have NO answes?

Integrative pain Rx: The ERs job is to rule out emergency. They did. But you still have pain. 1st thing is to go back to your original surgeon, or another surgeon who is recommended, to re-eval and review the scan. They might want another scan. If everything turns up negative, don't despair. It's good not to have a "surgical" problem. There are more subtle approaches to use. Let me know if you're stuck ...Read more
