What would the symptoms of scar tissue be after vaginal hysterectomy?

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?

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. Most importantly, you should call the doctor to set up an appointment to be evaluated. ...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
