Burning pain two weeks after hysterectomy

Hello everyone. I had my hysterectomy on April 20th. I have one spot in my abdomen that is still really painful. It's to the left of my belly button but not at an incision site. It started two days after surgery when I must have moved wrong and it felt like tearing at that spot. Ever since then the pain there has increased. I now get a terrible burning sensation if I lean over, twist, or sit too long. It's also sore to the touch. I contacted my doctor last week and he didn't seem concerned but I feel like I should be able to put on my underwear alone by now, haha. Does this sound normal or do I need to call the doctor again?

Re: Burning pain two weeks after hysterectomy

Sounds very familiar! I had an uber-sensitive spot between two incisions, the skin was oddly numb, I could feel a deep bruise, and when the spot was touched I'd get a tingly, burning/stabbing which could send me through the ceiling. I couldn't lean up against a counter, carry anything against it or wear my phone in my fitness belt on that side when I went walking. After asking here, I figured it was nerve damage from surgery, and it could take longer to heal than other internal incisions.

I didn't feel mine right away either - perhaps other surgical pain made it not noticeable, or perhaps that vicious sneeze at 3 days got me (I've never associated the sneeze with that spot, although it might've been). For me, around 4 months while cooking I realized I was leaning up against the counter and was okay with it. It was another 2 months before I could carry groceries or run with my phone against that spot. Somewhere around 10-1/2 months it was gone.

Your two weeks post-op. Give yourself a chance to heal over the next weeks and months.
