In brief: No

There is not a correlation between joint pain and hysterectomy.
Joint pain should be evaluated though by a primary care provider.

In brief: Yes

Joint aches are a common symptom of lack of estrogen.
This can happen when the ovaries are removed surgically (surgical menopause) or with a natural menopause. It may also occur with medicines that cause estrogen deprivation, like aromatase inhibitors. Symptoms of joint pains generally improve as the other symptoms of menopause improve.
