Lower back pain 1 week after da vinci hysterectomy

I am new to this site, and hope someone has experienced this. I had a hysterectomy 1 week ago yesterday by the da vinci robotic equipment, and was feeling great until last night I started having lower back pain, that is severe when I get up from the sitted position. I called my doctor and she prescribed an antibiotic in case it is a UTI. I was wondering if anyone else had this and if it was surgery related or otherwise. Thanks!

I'm sorry you're experiencing this but you did the right thing in contacting your doctor ~ unfortunately, urinary tract infections are common after a hysterectomy.

If you check out our <link> Post-Op Page, you'll find it packed with information including several bladder articles, and a Google Search of HysterSisters (towards the top right of every page) will reveal hundreds of similar experiences for you to read through.

Sending all good wishes for a smooth recovery!

If you don't have a UTI; Also keep in mind. For the Davinci procedure your on the "table" longer; mine was 3.5hrs long; with the hard, steel, table tilted at a steep angle, with your head lowered about 30 degrees. Between the extreme shoulder pain-from the cheep padding on the table stoppers; and the lower bache ache; It was a few days before I noticed the Abdominal pain.
Heating pads, light stretching, and massage to back helps. Especially before bed. Add to that some motrin and hopefully you can get comfortable. I'm a side sleeper so I find having a thick throw pillow between the knees helps decrease the stress on the lower back.
