Incision Pain After Hysterectomy
Can u tell me why my right side and incision site hurt when I work 3 months out of a hysterectomy?
Unsure: Depending on how your surgery was done, you could expect to have some pain for up to 4 or 6 months. The only way to get a really good idea of the cause for your pain would be to have a exam. You could call the surgeon who did your surgery. Read more
Never seen my Dr after hysterectomy and was discharged with my incision opening up. Post 5 days now. How do I care for it?
What's the question?: Yes it's possible to get a hematoma in a hysterectomy incision. If it's not enlarging, we usually leave it alone. It will "tamponade" itself off and stop growing, then slowly resorb. If it's enlarging, the incision would be opened and explored to tie off the bleeding vessel. Read more
I know the incision site has healed. But how long does it take for muscles to heal after a hysterectomy cause I still feel pain every so often.
Never the same again: Often a significant wound takes about 4-6 wks to heal, but it will never be the same. Once cut/injured, you will have a scar at the site and this remains and may bother you on/off for life. Some get adhesions and this can cause pain intermittently. Once healed, gentle stretching of the scar area to maintain its elasticity can help with contracture and thus reduce pain. Consult doc. Good luck. Read more

Just had a partial hysterectomy with the davinci. When trying to sit up can a person get a hernia were one of the incision iis? Hurts more.
Yes: Yes, but pain at an incision site is normal. One site may hurtle than the others if that was the extraction site for the uterus, and they sdid extra suturing inside. A hernia is classically associated with a bump that you can push clack in to the abdomen. A hard bump you can't push in under the incision is normal for 6-8 weeks or so. Hope this helps. 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 (acetaminophen). Read more
