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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Right away: There is no danger with external/clitoral stimulation almost immediately if you feel up to it. The precaution is not to insert anything vaginally, and certainly not deep because the cuff where the uterus was removed needs to heal. Placing anything into the vagina can rip open the sutures. Otherwise there are really no issues. ...Read more
Depends: If the method of masturbation is external (clitoral) stimulation, you could do this as soon as you feel up to it. It's generally recommended to not put anything into the vagina for 6-8 weeks. I would certainly discuss with your doctor before putting anything into the vagina. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: Sex so soon after a vaginal hysterectomy might disrupt the sutures at the apex of your vagina, and it also might increase the risk of infection after surgery. Call your doctor if you have any bleeding or discharge. Wait to have sex until you've gotten clearance from your doctor - it can take up to 6 weeks to heal completely. ...Read more
My job I'm required to lift 20 lbs or more plus I stand all day. is it ok to return to this 6 weeks after a vaginal hysterectomy?
Should be okay: Six weeks is a usual amount of time for healing after a surgery like a vaginal hysterectomy. As long as you're not bleeding and not in pain and as long as you have seen your doctor for a postoperative appointment to ensure that there weren't complications, there should be no problem with heavy lifting and standing as needed for work. Hope that helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it safe to masturbate after a vaginal hysterectomy? What will it feel like without uterine contractions?
Masterbation: Masterbation should feel the same. Uterine contraction plays little if any role in the sensory experience of orgasm. Pelvic muscles contract during orgasm to produce the "contractile feel". Less than 3% of all women require the uterus to achieve orgasm as it is clitoral stimulation that "works" . A supracervical hysterectomy may be done if one can only orgasm with vaginal penetration. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No visible scar: A circular incision is made around the cervix through the vaginal wall. The abdominal cavity is entered between the rectum and cervix through the vagina. The bladder is separated from the cervix. The arteries feeding the uterus are tied off and cut. The uterus is delivered through the vagina. The ligaments supporting the uterus and cervix are reattached to the vagina. The vagina is closed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Varies: Many women are essentially fully recovered in less than 2 weeks. Most have resumed normal activity by 2 to 4 weeks. To be safe, you should plan for 4 to 6 weeks for full recovery - but expect to require less than 4 weeks. ...Read more
