• 6 months post hysterctomy, slight pain vaginia and lower abdomen after using jet swifter.

    Asked by DebbieP on Tuesday, September 25, 2012

    6 months post hysterctomy, slight pain vaginia and lower abdomen after using jet swifter.

    Is it normal to get slight pain 6 months post hysterctomy? I am thinking I am using muscles that I have not been using since procedure. I am hoping this is normal and hoping someone can tell me this is normal because I am using different muscles. It's a little scary hoping I did not do any damage, no bleeding just little discomfort which is not normal for me. Can you can pain for awhile till all muscles are healed . Do you think I could of damaged something?

      I would say it is probably normal because of the activity you are doing. Is this the first time you have done this since your surgery? But if you are really concerned, or the pain gets worse I would call my Dr. I had a hysterectomy about 6 years ago, so I don't quite remember the healing time.

      I had a partail hysterctomy a little shy of 3 years ago and I will tell you things still feel different. No pain anymore but working out and carrying heavy things just feels different if that makes any sense.

      I had pain and would get worn out easily after surgery. Take it slow and just keep pushing little by little, it def. gets better with time and getting back into the swing of things.

      Hope it gets better faster than later =)

      It is probably due to using muscles that you have not used since your hysterectomy. After having an abdominal hysterectomy, I remember it took a while for my abdominal muscles to strengthen.

      Hi, I am an oncology/end of life nurse that specializes in gyne cancers and this a normal post hysterectomy reaction. Try some cool compresses to reduce swelling, not heat as heat draws a blood supply to the sight at a faster rate and that will intensify the throbbing. Good luck!

      Debbie, I agree with the others. You are probably using muscles that have not been used for a while. It takes time to completely heal from a hysterectomy. I still get little pings and aches sometimes after three years. Give it time and if it doesn't improve then call your doctor for your own peace of mind.

      I had some inital aches and twinges. I started an exercise (easy) program, first through a friend who is a rehab PTA and then through our local wellness center that offers exercise 1:1 for cancer patients. Made a big difference for energy and stamina.
