Horrible cramps : ( ... Is like I had my uterus back.

For days I been feeling down, low energy and mild pelvic pain now today I have horrible cramping ...aaaaaaaaghhh I know I can have still similar pain after a partial hysterectomy but I figure having no uterus it would
Minimize some of the pain I used to have before surgery and today am crampy like crazy. I am not bleeding .... Don't know what to take .... I took 600mg ibuprofen .... Sigh seems like my menstrual pains will never go away. =(

Re: Horrible cramps : ( ... Is like I had my uterus back.

I had my surgery 5 days after yours LVAH both ovaries gone. I get severe cramping if I do anything other than rest. Went to church for the first time today and had 8 bowel movements that were normal, now it's changed to diareaha (sp?). I have horrible cramping even when not having days like this. My 6 week post op appt was changed to this week. I've been in close contact w/ my Primary Doc and they told me not to worry about the bowel issues for a couple more months bc the severity of the endo. Been using the heatpad, but can't find much relief to the cramps. Fellow sisters, look forward to your responses.
PS - sorry wasn't of much help, but you aren't alone

I would call your docs office tonight to tell them what is happening. You shouldn't suddenly be having this much pain. Especially if it is suddenly increasing and the pain meds aren't helping much. I hope that they can give you some good advice and help. Sending tons of

My doctor stated ANY spotting if you haven't been to call...so if you haven't been spotting and have restarted, I would call! Also remember not to strain with you BMs that could rupture your vaginal cuff and abdominal repair as well!

Re: Horrible cramps : ( ... Is like I had my uterus back.

The exact thing happened to me. Went in to ER in severe pain in right pelvic area.
Doctor did a quick check of my abdomen and after viewing the urine and blood test decided I too had either a Bladder Infection or UTI.
So, left the hospital with an antibiotic and rest :s.
That was less than a week ago, and it seems better.
Maybe its possible that the pain was way more severe because of the invasive surgery and bruising of the organs.
Good luck girl.
