ME AGAIN - STILL NEED HELP
I am 1 year exactly post-op, Robotic Full Hysterectomy. I started having lower back pain the day after surgery. Since that time, the pain is so severe in my lower back as well as my whole Pelvic area. Some days I am unable to walk or after driving or sitting for any length of time; I am completely locked in an L SHAPE! Sleeping at night is so painful I am usually up most of the night. I have had many follow up visits and referred to a Pelvic specialist that said he believed it was hip and should consult with Ortho..It's my Pelvic for sure and I am at the end of my rope with the constant pain.

Hi jrh89....Unfortunately, during surgeries such as this and when we are already put under, we are lifted and moved around without our helping the staff...Here is where problems happen...I know, I had one happen to me years ago...Took me years to get over the pinched nerve....Take care...
