my legs hurt

i am 9 months post op from a total hysterectomy done vaginally. My legs hurt. A burning pain down the backs and inside of my thighs. It seems to radiate from the vaginal area. Anyone else had this?

Sorry to hear you are experiencing this. Doesn't sound pleasant, to say the least.

Is this new pain? Have you asked your doctor?

I'd have this looked at and if my doc said "I don't know" then I'd asked to be referred until I got an answer that made sense to me (and hopefully found a resolution).

my legs hurt

hi michelle...thanks for your reply!...this isnt new, its just come on gradually and gotten worse. I havent asked the doctor. Even if something is wrong, whats the doc gonna do? More surgery? nuh uh....not right now anyway. I guess i was wondering if anyone else had this. I've suspected before that i had pelvic floor dysfunction, due to years of bladder pain that was undiagnosed. anyway, thank you!

((((katie))))) I'm so sorry you've been dealing with this on-going pain and that it's getting worse Please, ((((sweetie)))), do mention it to your doctor: you'd be amazed at how simple it might be to deal with situations we see no solution to!! And, often enough, it may not involve additional surgery!!! But you have to ask for the help

Sending lots of s your way. Please keep us posted.

Hi (((Katie)))

Some of the alternatives to additional surgery include physiotherapy, medication and even some non-traditional alternatives, such as accupuncture, have been known to work. There may even be other options that I'm not aware of, since I'm neither a doctor nor a nurse. And sometimes, those solutions are temporary, when the situation resoves itself.
