Vaginal/ tailbone and pelvic pain at 13 weeks post hysterectomy

Hello everyone! I am 13 weeks postop a robotic lap assisted vaginal hysterectomy and at between 8-12 weeks I had been feeling so much better. All my soreness and vaginal pain was gone. I thought I was completely healed but at 13 weeks all my vaginal/pelvic/tailbone pain and tampon stuck feeling have returned. But also I am having low back pain with all this. I've scheduled an appointment to see my Dr. next week for checkup. But I'm starting to worry if somethings wrong. Has anyone else had their pain return this far into their recovery?

Re: Vaginal/ tailbone and pelvic pain at 13 weeks post hysterectomy

One of the hardest things to wrap our brains around is just how long this recovery takes. You'll read that full healing takes 4-6 months, sometimes longer. I didn't fully buy into it either, until I had a few more months in the rear view mirror. Our article How Long Will the Pain Last After Hysterectomy? is not really so much about the pain, but rather the view from 36,000 feet about this recovery.

What have your days been like lately? What have you been doing? Resuming exercise, long days, lots of walking or moving heavy things? I continued to have off and on again pains through 5 months - usually when I didn't something my body wasn't ready to handle yet and I can list specific instances. Last time at the mat with those symptoms was 5 months. With my most recent surgery on March 12th, I still get occasional pain to the left of my incision whenever I engage my abs too much. It's where I had the most bruising post-op.

It's always okay to make an appointment with your doctor if you have concerns, though, to rule out anything like a hematoma or abscess. Update us after your appointment.

Thank you for your reassuring words. Yes, it is shocking how long this recovery truly takes. I wonder sometimes do the doctors truly know? I do know they totally fail to mention that. But I am hoping I get a good report from my doctor this week.

Not knocking doctors because they've got skillsets that few of us have... but very few of them have had the surgery they perform! So no, they don't know what recovery is like. The good ones will listen and pass along what they've from past patients. Few of them see their patients or get progress updates beyond the release dates.

Vaginal/ tailbone and pelvic pain at 13 weeks post hysterectomy

Hi Mel48,

Your post has saved me from feeling like I'm alone. I am 15 weeks post op. I had a lavh on may 19th. I am still on restrictions because Im a slow healer. I went from feeling as good as new to crap again. For about the past 3 weeks I have been having issues that make me feel like I'm never going to heal. It started with what felt like pelvic tendon pain or like I pulled my groin. Then I started like pressure and pain on my tailbone that has not let up. Finally on top of all my new aches and pains I have the sensation of a tampon falling out of me. And my vagina feels irritated and burning a bit. It is the most uncomfortable and scary feeling. I went to the e.r and was told everything is ok and was just given laxatives in case Im constipated which Im not. I took the laxatives anyway just to be safe. And I still have tailbone pain and the sensation like something in the vagina. My pelvic tendon pain is also still there. Im just wondering how you are doing and if you issues finally went away and how long they lasted. Did you ever find out the cause of this? Any info on this is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
