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

Hi, in June I underwent partial hysterectomy by assisted robotic method. From last week I am having pelvic pain. Is it a symptom of scar tissue?

Not necessarily scar: Pelvic pain can have many causes. You should document the onset, character (sharp, dull, crampy, etc), and how often you're having the pain as well as if you are having any other symptoms (such as issues with urination or bowel movements). In addition, see if the pain gets better with ibuprofen or Tylenol (acetaminophen). Most importantly, you should call the doctor to set up an appointment to be evaluated. ...Read more

Hysterectomy: Every surgical procedure, including hysterectomy, must be evaluated in terms of risks and benefits. The determination must be made by you, your ob/gyn and your loved ones, on an individual basis.

Internal adhesions (scarring) adds some risk to the procedure; however, if you have uterine cancer, or severe bleeding, the real benefits will still very likely outweigh the potential risks. ...Read more

Had partial vaginal hysterectomy 7 yrs ago. 3 months ago, began wrking w/ personal trainer. Can scar tissue cause gut-ripping pain. Will it bleed inter?

"Gut-ripping" bad!: Scarring or adhesions from surgery can tear with activity, and it can cause pain, although usually not bleeding. However, pain described as "gut-wrenching" sounds pretty bad. If that is continuing, you should be seen so a good history and exam can be done to give you a better answer! ...Read more

Needs follow up: This is a complex situation with lots of possibilities. The fever should be addressed first since that could be caused by so many things.

I had a complete hysterectomy 2004 due to severe endometriosis. No gallbladder (2012) having persistent pain. MRI & CT shows nothing. Can it be scar tissue or endometriosis causing the pain in RUQ?

Adhesions: Post-hysterectomy w. RUQ pain queries cause. Med literature reports common evolution of peritoneal adhesions following any/all abdominal/pelvic invasive/surgical procedures. In my experience, many post-invasive-procedure "endometriosis" patients have IBS-like symptoms. Endometriosis is a theoretical disorder lacking firm pathological proof &, in my opinion, is likely an iatrogenic disorder. ...Read more

Don't wait for symptoms of abdominal distension, vomiting or severe tenderness which are advanced and serious symptoms. ...Read more

Have a cut on a hysterectomy scar that goes across my belly. There is a small fold of fat that keeps air out. What's best to heal it.

Clean and protected: Cuts in this area should heal quickly with local wound care. Keeping the area clean (soap and water) and moist (topical antibiotic ointment) and covered should do it. If not, there maybe a problem. Non healing wounds should be checked by a doctor to prevent further injury. ...Read more
