what causes vaginal pain following a hysterectomy

Please excuse me if it sounds as if I am asking a stupid question. Why does having a hysterectomy cause vaginal pain? Is it because it was done vaginally? I have been told I need reconstructive surgery on my vagina, hysterectomy and bladder sling. Am I in for the painful experience?

Re: what causes vaginal pain following a hysterectomy

My friend just recovered from a vaginal hysterectomy and she complained of vaginal pain. My guess is that it is akin to delivering a baby vaginally. My friend had never done that, but if its the same thing try sitting on bags of frozen peas. It's cheap but helps with the swelling and pain.

Re: what causes vaginal pain following a hysterectomy

I had a TVH but didn't have any vaginal pain and was surprised and relieved - just had a little discomfort. But I didn't have sling or reconstructive surgery so that may make a big difference. I did have major pain following vaginal birth and episiotomy though. The best thing to do is discuss your concerns with your doctor and find out what to expect. That way you can come up with a pain management ahead of time to help ease your fears a tad. Best of luck to you!

I had TVH on 9-14-10 with bladder sling and anterior repair. I have ahd not vaginal pain only slight discomfort. I was on pain meds for only 6 days. I am almost 8 weeks post op and feeling great. Hope this helps.
