In brief: Sometimes

There are various reasons to have a hysterectomy.
Some are fibroids, pain, heavy bleeding, or cancer. It is important to know that there are newer types of hysterectomies that result in much less pain, such as vaginal, laparoscopic and robotic. Consider consultation for these minimally invasive methods if you need a hysterectomy.

In brief: Not too much

It depends somewhat on the way that the hysterectomy is done, but it is not more painful than typical abdominal surgeries.
