Tingly Incision After Hysterectomy

From the Hysterectomy Recovery Articles List

Woman with hands over tingly incision after hysterectomyMy hysterectomy incision feels weird. It's a combination of numb, prickly, and sore. Is my scar normal?


Many women who have had an abdominal surgery report the same kind of feelings surrounding their tummy scar.

Consider that your surgeon had to cut through the top layer of skin, sever some nerves, cut through tissue, and finally stitch your abdomen up. It's no wonder that your incision feels weird, even after it has healed on the outside.

The numbness fades over time, but you may still continue to have odd feelings around the scar area for many years.

One product we can recommend in the HysterSisters Store that may help your scar continue to heal:
Getting back into a sensible exercise program also helps. Exercise improves circulation, which can help the abdominal incision site to continue to heal.

If your scar continues to be a concern to you, discuss it with your physician.
