pain in legs

I don't know if I am posting these right because I can't find my original one. So here it goes again. I had vaginal hysterectomy on the 2nd and I am having severe pain in my legs on the sides right below my hips. I have tried everything to relieve it and nothing is working. Heating pads, not laying on my sides, walking, pain meds. Is this a sign of something serious or is this to be expected? Please Help!!

Well, my guess is that you might have strained muscles from being in stirrups during the surgery. I am also a bit sore in my hips but it isn't severe. If you have severe pain anywhere this close to your surgery date, I think you should call your doctor or get to an ER to be examined, just to be sure it isn't anything serious. I hope you feel better soon.

Thanks so much. I am a very active person and this taking it easy is so hard for me. My stomach is not hurting no where like my legs do. I think I would feel like a million bucks right now if it weren't for my legs. Thanks again for your advice.

I am three months post op and still have pain in my right leg. It aches like a toothache at times. Hubby says I am favoring it from my other leg. It hurts tonight as we speak. I just took some pain meds for it hoping it goes away. How long should it last?

What's DVT? OOOhh.. Deep Vein Thrombosis? yeah, that wouldn't be good. I am terrified of that happening. They say that the risk peaks at 6 weeks. I'm going to be white knuckled with worry that entire week.
