Dr. PAUL EUN answered:

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

Pain

Hysterectomy
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.

Pain

Hysterectomy
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.

Scar tissue create back pain after hysterectomy?

Back pain

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

Help with internal scar tissue from hysterectomy?

Deep tissue massage

Hysterectomy
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

Could I have scar tissue on my colon after vaginal hysterectomy; and how would i know?

Adhesions

Scarring
Any intra-abdominal process like a hysterectomy can cause scarring/adhesions within the abdominal cavity. It does not cause actual scarring of the colon unless it was injured intra-op.

I had an hysterectomy, and now have abdominal scar tissue. my stomach is huge. can i work out to make it go down. or use the body wraps.

Yes

Abdomen
Diet and exercise are the best ways to try to reduce the extra abdominal fat. Wraps are not very effective and will only give temporary results if any at all.
