      I didn't have the problem, but my surgery was followed by chemo, radiation, chemo. So, I wasn't able to eat during my treatment, so that kept my body pretty well dehydrated. I don't know if drinking more liquids would flush your system.

      I had a hysterectomy (regular, huge scar type) in December 2012. I am just now, 7 months later, starting to see some improvement in the swelling. I'd say a year is a more realistic amount of time. Surgery is a huge trauma to the body, as such the body takes time to heal and recover. But, if you feel your recovery isn't normal and something might be wrong, then listen to your body and contact a doctor. Good luck!

      I am 3 weeks post hysterectomy and also get sharp side lower pain now and again I was told that those ligaments they stitch everything to when uterus is removed is in that exact position so I always call but try not to worry like everyone says it can take 6 weeks to a year to feel right again

      started having sharp pain on my right side above my hip. It is constant. I have been careful not to overdo anything - no heavy lifting, only walking, started driving this week. Has anyone else had this happen? I have been feeling very good the last three days and frustrated now because I am in pain.I have told my Dr but nothing is being done about it. I have a little bleeding sometimes.

      I had the surgery two weeks ago. I cramp on the right side. Can we get blood clots to other parts of the body???

    Procedure or Surgery (Robotic assisted laparoscopic radical hysterectomy): Much better than abdominal surgery but it is still major surgery. I am sore, tired, and swollen.
