I had a hysterectomy in February and the last 2 days I have been passing blot clots with sharp pain on right side. Is this normal?
Maybe: If you've resumed sex then it may be the cause of the bleeding as the cuff of the vagina needs to stretch a bit. It could also be a cuff hematoma, cuff granulation tissue. Another possibility is that you have a supracervical hysterectomy with some residual endometrium tissue in the canal. If it persists see your GYN for an exam. ...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
Broad question: There are surgical risks with any procedure - ie. Bleeding, infection, damage to adjacent organs, failure to cure, etc. There are also usually benefits for the majority of procedures performed. In the case of hysterectomy - we expect resolution of whatever problem prompted the surgery. The specific side effects of hysterectomy include - no more periods, no uterine prolapse, fewer cramps, etc. ...Read more
Depends on: What type of hysterec, the reason it is being done and your body condition, your gyn should discuss all of that with you before hand and have u sign a consent form if you are going to have surgery and your gyn can discuss all of this with you before the surgery as u may not want to have it, after the discussion depending on your circumstances. ...Read more
Many:: Physical risks of surgery: infections, injury to other internal organs (bladder/intestines), bleeding (risk of needing blood transfusion), hernia formation, changes in sexual function, risk of onset of urinary leakage, risk of nerve injuries, risk of changes in hormone function (even if pt keeps their ovaries), scar tissue ; /or pain after surgery. To name a few. These aren't common, but possible. ...Read more

What are the possible side effects or risks associated with having a hysterectomy at the age of 27?
Surgical vs psycholo: Obviously there is risk of surgical complications such as bleeding/blood clot, infections etc. From the surgery, but there is a pyschological component to this. Most likely the ovaries will be left alone, so hormone-wise u will be ok, but u will not be able to have (any more) children. This is probably the biggest concern espcially if u have not had children. Consult your doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Menopause: If by total hysterectomy you mean that the ovaries were removed along with the uterus (which is the usual lay understanding of the term although not the medical definition) then the effect is immediate menopause. Expect hot flashes, mood swings, and possibly insomnia, with vaginal dryness as a delayed effect. ...Read more
Hard to say: Left sided pain can be from many different causes. In that location is the lower bowel that can be a source of pain no matter if there was a hysterectomy or not. Also ovarian issues, musculoskeletal, nerve issues and scar tissue can all cause pain there. Having a thorough evaluation by a gynecologist will help determine cause and best options for relief. ...Read more

I had a hysterectomy 6 months ago everything removed because of endemitriosis have had terrible pain left lower side after scan they find cyst! ?
Red herring?: 40's female post-hysterectomy for endometriosis has "terrible left side" pain. Per med literature, nearly every pelvic invasive procedure leads to bowel adhesions; not discoverable by imaging techniques. My experience is that the series of invasive procedures oft performed in "endometriosis" patients can beget IBS. Also consider SIJ disorder; oft associated with endometriosis. G.I. specialist? ...Read more
Many: In the short term, a small amount of spotting and discharge are normal - as well as some degree of discomfort (pain). In the long term there may be many benefits, but the primary side effect is that you will never have any uterine bleeding - which is good. It is difficult to answer this question without knowing why the vaginal hysterectomy is needed. ...Read more

Its been 3 1/2 yrs since my hysterectomy and now I'm having sharp pain below my waist line on my left side. Is that normal?
I am experiencing side pain below my ribs on the left and right side, more so the left. I also had a hysterectomy almost 2 weeks ago.
Atelectasis?: My assumption here would be something called atelectasis, a lung condition which is temporary and which tends to occur after abdominal operations. Essentially, if it hurts to take a deep breath you tend to take shallow breaths which leads to compression of the lungs which can be painful. A chest x-ray would show it. But this is just an assumption, sight unseen of course. ...Read more
