|has anyone had pain-pinching/burning type when I am walking or standing.I am 5 wks post abdominal hysterectomy-and my right hand side-near my hip has this pain and swelling when I put pressure on my feet.
My abdomen is still slightly swollen from the op but more so on the right hand side-doctor says its pockets of fluid under the scar?Since then the pain is worse. Surely I should be more mobile now that walking shouldnt affect me.
Any advice would be grateful.
|My doctor told me it is where he attached the ligaments that he took off of the uterus and ovaries etc. Once is all heals up, we should be fine. Meanwhile, its a searing sharp burning pain at times,
My total abdominal hysterectomy was seven days ago.
I hope this helps.
|i had my uterus n cervix removed on june 3, 09 i am 39yrs old never had a child and i was diagnosed with pre-cancer cells here i am going on my 5th week and i feel a horrible pain at the ends of my incision i told my doc she said it was normal my friend says i could be having a hernia i have done nothing since my surgery i pray and wish that my life will be normal soon but the way i feel i think this recovery will take a long long time im so tired of this..god pls give me more patience|
|I had my total hysterectomy and 1 ovary removed April 29/09. I still feel the burning in my lower abdomen and I also have an open area that hasn't healed on my abdomen, 1/2 inch long. My total incision was 13 inches and I had lots of bleeding from the wound lasting days and days. Now the bleeding has stopped and some days I feel great and others I feel a lot of pain. I find I am still weak and can not move the way I use to. I just got back to work last week (I am a nurse) and it is painful trying to do simple things. I was told by my Doctor that the burning sensation and the pain can be the nerves. With a abdominal Hyst. some nerves can be damaged when cutting. I also have no feeling on the top portion of my upper thigh and until last week I could barely feel the lower part of my abdomen. I know that some of my pain on my right side is from where they stitched up my ovary to hold it in place (so it wouldn't be hanging down). I find when I move or stretch on that side it pulls causing a little pain. In response to others talking about having sex before 6 weeks, this can cause the sutures to tear and I wonder if you would be at risk for infection because if there is even a little open area that hasn't healed you could be introducing bacteria. Also like others I have been told it can take up to a year to feel normal again.
Thank-you to all the posts, I have learned a lot from these postings.
