Re: Is it normal to have period-like cramps 3 weeks after a hysterectomy?

I am 3 wks post op - TAH (kept ovaries). I too am definitely having the menstrual-like cramps. My bladder is working fine, but the cramps are kicking butt. Thank you ladies for letting me know i am not alone.

I was beginning to think something was wrong w/me. On 3/26 I had a TAH/BSO and have had period-like cramping.

Re: Is it normal to have period-like cramps 3 weeks after a hysterectomy?

I am 5 weeks post op, and the last few days have felt like that. I just looked at the calender, and I would be on day 4 of my period right now. Yesterday was the worst, and day 3 for me was always my worst day...I am not liking this. I do have one ovary. I am hoping this is just temporary, as I had a large lump of endo removed from my abdominal muscle three years ago. I am scared that even though there was no endo seen when I had my hysterectomy, there could be more inside the ab muscles.

I think the period like cramps they were talking about is just after the hyst. in general, not at a specific time of a period (unless maybe we've overdone it and it's coincidental timing or something, I guess.) I do know that ovulating can cause pain, especially close to surgery, which five weeks still has lots of healing going on in there.

Take care,

I am having the same issue. It is BAD, I hurt so bad, the cramps are horrible. I feel like crying. I feel like there is something hurting horribly in my vagina that i want to die. I do not want to go to the hospital, I called the doc on call the other day and he said that a office visit would be best. This was not my doctor either. I am scared and I feel like I am going to croak. I hurt VERY BADLY

Im 10 days out from DVH/BSO.. foggy still so I think its 10 days. Im having the menstrual cramps as well. not as bad as they were before but noticeable as this week is my period week. my mom had a total hyster when I was 2 (26 yrs ago) she said she continued to have the period feeling monthly for a couple of years.... as long as it doesnt get as bad as an endo period pain Ill manage but not happily

I know this thread is old but, I am too, having severe cramps but they are localized to the old uterine spot on on my sides..
I cannot believe this! I truly though the hysterectomy was my "cure all" This really stinks......

Re: Is it normal to have period-like cramps 3 weeks after a hysterectomy?

I am a week and half out from having my hysterectomy. Thanks to everyone who posted on this topic. My cramps are so bad, I was beginning to think something was wrong. Looking forward to some relief. Cramps and back pains hurt so bad. I am using a heating pad to help with the pain management. Walking seems to help a little. I was told that the cramps could be associated with the swelling. Blessings to all.
