Not unusual: during menstruation the engorged uterus contracts to expel the menstrual blood. This is likely putting pressure on the surgical site.

I'm still in a lot of pain after having laproscopic sigmoid colon surgery, then a hematoma. Why, and how long could this go on? I had the surgery for diverticulitis, it's been 2 weeks after surgery and 4 days ago he drained the hematoma, I am in a lot of

In either open or laparoscopic sigmoidectomy, the major complications include: leakage and/or stricture at the anastomosis (connecting the two ends of the colon), abscess, and bleeding (hematoma). The symptoms associated with the hematoma depend on its size and location. It is possible that the hematoma is compressing surrounding tissues or organs causing pressure symptoms, or if pressing on a nerve, can also cause neuralgias or pain. If you are still having symptoms after drainage of the hematoma, you may want to see your surgeon again to have a ct scan done to make sure that the hematoma has been drained and that there are not other reasons (such as infection) for presistent pain or gastrointestinal symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Warm baths ,applications of anusol ointment help ...Read more
