Hi

i had a tah and bso in november last year, I returned to work full time 1 month ago. I am still in pain just above my scar , I have a stinging pain and it is very senstitive to touch in one particular spot . I have been told that it is very likely to be nerve pain, and will go with time. The pain is worse when sitting and bending, but best when I am walking and lying down.

Does anyone know if there is anything I can take or do to relieve the pain as it really getting me down.

Caroline

Very very gentle massage such as rubbing coca butter or vitamin e cream on to your belly which will also help the scar to fade and the scar tissue to not pucker.

Hi
Hi caroline,

it's it frustrating and draining to have on-going pain. I'm sure you're limiting your bend etc. I found this website the other day, as i've had on-going pain as well after a hyst (feb 9), maybe you need some further investigation as to the cause of your pain. This site discusses how they do a very detailed assessment. Below is the web address where you can find a provider in the uk

i hope this is helpful and that you recover soon.

Always be extra vigilant finding a doctor or healthcare provider on the net.
Your best option is to ask for a referral from your doctor to a specialist if that is the route you wish to follow.
Or even word of mouth, if you know of someone who has had similar surgury and they recommend a doctor to you.
Always check out any potential health care providers credentials - there are plenty of cowboys out there unfortunately.

Caroline,

i got relief using a tens unit that the doctor loaned me. I'm not sure if it's a good idea if you have nerve pain though. My pain was right above my scar too and was horrible for months. When I started using the tens unit, it went away. It's what finally got me off the pain killers.

A friend of mine had a hysterectomy three months ago and got relief from using something called emu oil that she rubbed on the scar and the area of pain. She swears by it.

Left Side Pain
Hi my name is selena and I was reading that something called emu oil will help with the pain. I just recently had a partial hysterectomy on april 25th. I know it is still fresh but I don't know what else to do about the constapation it is continuous. Or the pain and pulling in the left side. Does anybody still feel this way.Your response will be greatly appreciated. thank you
