pain and cuff tear post hysterectomy 12 weeks

Well its not good news, after waiting and following all precautions my cuff tore slightly after one round of intercourse, of course that was that!!!

Followed by trip to urgent care/ER for massive pain and visited my surgeon today by Wednesday, I will be under the knife again to repair it
I am devastated to say the least just had my (59th b- day last week)
Pray for me and a speedy recovery.
For someone who had a robust sex life, I may be afraid to ever have sex again, which really saddens me. I will keep you all posted

Oh no!! So sorry!! I am afraid of that too! Was it really gentle sex? Did you go real slow? Did your doctor say its common to tear or why it tore?

Oh no!! My cousin had the same thing happen at 3 months post op. I’m only 7 weeks out but terrified to even think about attempting sex...especially since this seems so common!

1% seems low! I never had children maybe that helps in my favor. I guess the ones we hear about seems like a lot but out of the millions of cuffs, we actually dont hear it a lot. Lets hope for some strong forever holding cuffs!!

Googling is bad but I found this:

Due to the suturing or cutting technique, women are more at risk for this complication if they have undergone a laparoscopic or robotic hysterectomy instead of an abdominal or vaginal hysterectomy.

Factors that increase the risk of a vaginal tear after a hysterectomy include:

weakened pelvic floor muscles
engaging in sexual activity before the vaginal cuff has healed
smoking cigarettes
uncontrolled diabetes
obesity
chronic constipation
any condition that causes chronic or severe coughing
vaginal infections
vaginal atrophy
weakened immune system
history of radiation in the pelvic region

pain and cuff tear post hysterectomy 12 weeks

I'm sorry that happened! I was so afraid of that. I just had sex a few days ago after waiting 4 months. I must say it went rather well. No bleeding or pain afterwards. I was nervous the whole time that something might happen but so far even 2 days later other than sore hips I'm good lol. Does anyone know of it happening later after several times or if you make it through the first time you're good?
