Quick question:Has anyone else experienced headaches after a partial hysterectomy?

Hey ladies,

I have a quick question: Has anyone else experienced headaches after a partial or full hysterectomy?

If so, does anyone have ideas on how to cope with them?

Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Michelle F

Hi
Yes I been getting the headache. Just went to the Dr for it. He said it could be that the ovaries is sleeping after surgery. He gave me some pain medicine and a stronger Motrin
I am 10 weeks out from my surgery

Re: Quick question:Has anyone else experienced headaches after a partial hysterectomy?

I'm a long-time sufferer of migraines, and hormones have definitely played a part in mine. I've learned what my triggers are, and it's often getting off schedule with eating and not getting enough sleep. Those two combined are usually a ticket on the Migraine Express for me. The sluggish ovaries many of us experience after surgery are probably contributing to yours.

We've got an article on Treating Hormonal Migraines. For symptoms, a dark quiet room and lying down helps me (ie. no movement), ginger ale for an upset stomach, bland crackers. If your headaches interfere with your day, by all means talk to your doctor. I'm on a prescription sumatriptan - generic Imitrex - and usually 1/3 of a pill will take care of it in 30-45 minutes. A full one makes me feel like I've been hit by a bus within 15 minutes!

Hope that helps.
