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

Pain: Scar tissue formation is very common after surgery. Sometimes, scar tissue (adhesions) will cause pain and other times will not. If you have no pain, then there is no need to do anything. However, scar tissue is less likely to form after vaginal hysterectomy than abdominal hysterectomy. Please see your doctor if you are having any issues.

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

Pain: Pain with intercourse, pain with bowel movements, etc. The diagnosis of scar tissue can only be made by re-operating and confirming it...This is usually avoided because multiple surgeries can cause more scarring, which are called adhesions.

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.

Look further: Get a urinalysis (dip stick & microscopic) and urine culture to look for infection and tumor. Interstitial cystitis is a condition with symptoms similar to an infection but usually with normal urine. A cystoscopy is needed to diagnose this. Good luck

Help with internal scar tissue from hysterectomy?

Deep tissue massage: More surgery is a last resort. Therefore other options need to be tried first. Deep tissue massage, careful management of digestion and bowels, lots of self care, are all things that need to be tried first. Http://www. Massagetoday. Com/mpacms/mt/article. Php? Id=14020.

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.

Could scar tissue be causing me to have pelvic pain especially when I have a sonagram vaginally, I had a csection in 2010 then a hysterectomy in 2011?

Could scar tissue be causing me to have pelvic pain especially when I have a sonagram vaginally, I had a csection in 2010 then a hysterectomy in 2011?

Possible: Scar tissue could be the problem. If you still have your ovaries, then an ovarian cyst could be the issue. You could have endometriosis - having had a cesarean delivery does increase the risk for endometriosis and that would easily cause he type of pain you describe.

Had a tubal ligation and it was difficult because of all the scar tissue from trauma. They had to use a scope. How dangerous would a hysterectomy be?

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.

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!

Complete hysterectomy 4y ago. W/vaginal cuff revision 1y ago. Scar tissue removed. Painful sex. Spotting. Pain in back & abdomin. Low grade fever.?

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. Then your gynecologist can assess the vaginal cuff. You may have granulation tissue, scar tissue, pelvic adhesions or a number of other issues which can be addressed.

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.

Back pain: Scar tissue, endometriosis and othe problems related to the uterus and ovaries can cause pelvic or back pain. After hysterectomy you should have a gun checkup to assess the health of ovaries, bladder and pelvic floor. Endometriosis can cause pain after hysterectomy, in some cases, even after removal of ovaries.
