Abdominal Pain After Hysterectomy

Hi Loveshoes
Yes, I remember getting those kinds of pains.
I found walking around the house seemed to help move the gas and staying away from gassy foods such as carbonated beverages, broccoli, cabbage, etc. is important for the first while .
Sometimes the intestines get a bit disturbed during a surgery and it takes a while for them to settle down.
Hope this problem clears up for you soon. It sure isn't fun!

I think the gas pains hurt more than anything else.

OMG! Gas Pain!!!

I just got home from the Castle on Thanksgiving. I had a melon-sized fibroid tumor, so I have an unusually large scar; 6 inches verticle. Did I expect abdominal pain? Sure. I believe I have beared up very well with the pain. Difficulty sitting up? Okay, I can deal with that. Post-op dizziness, nausea, lack of appetite, weakness, I try to take it with a smile. GAS PAIN??? I cried like a baby throughout the entire night one night! It was by far the worst part! It seemed so strange, and I couldn't believe that this is what "brought me down." I found myself wandering the hospital halls with my IV pole at 2:30 in the morning wimpering like a puppy and tears streaming down my face with pain shooting all the way up through my shoulder blades. It does pass... as gas always seems to do. Now for that pesky BM that I haven't had yet!

Hang in there!

Abdominal Pain After Hysterectomy

Hey loveshoes, that gas sure is a pain! Try walking around, that helps. Another tip I've read is to lay on one side, then switch to another. (if you can, I couldn't lay on my sides for a couple weeks) THe reason behind swtiching sides is that our intestines around 1 straight line, so of course the gas has to move around a bit before finding it's way "out". lol

Also, if you haven't had a bm yet, the gas will build up until you do. Just keep on walkin hon...it does get better!

Abdominal Pain After Hysterectomy

I think it's really rude that the Docs don't tell us when they do these kinds of surgery ( especially abdominal ) THEY insert air ( GAS ) into us to help move the other organs out of the way so they can get to where they need to go.. So how come they cant let it back out? If we are lucky enough not to have any other complications, the gas pains after surgery seem to be the WORST pain of all. At least it was for me. It takes a good 10 days or so to really get rid of it all. So blame most of your gas pains on the Doctor.. LOL

Abdominal Pain After Hysterectomy

I had severe gas pains yesterday - day 11 after my TAH. Tears streaming down my face, wimpering - you bet it does hurt. I found it difficult to even walk during that time. Things are much better today. I felt like I was getting so much better, so yesterday was a bit of a downer. My husband tells me "Two steps forward, one step back" and to remember that I am getting better. Today I know I am much better. Yesterday, I was wondering.
