Hello to all. I had my hysterectomy a year ago due to constant bleeeding, cysts, and passing out from heavy bleeding. It wasnt an easy decision however I am glad I did it. I have a question for any of you though. I now have sharp pain around my scar area and have noticed that when I lift heavy items it can be very bad. Have any of you had similiar experiences. I have to schedule an appointment with my doctor soon but I have been putting that off. ( Hate the stirrups routine ya know?) Any who I am glad that I hound this site.

Do schedule an appt with your doctor to have that checked out. In my case, the continued pain was due to nerve damage and adhesions. My incision was also very lumpy and red looking.

I want to welcome you also! I agree with the other sisters, that any new pain needs to be addressed by a doctor. At 16 months post op from a TAH/BSO, my incision area is still very sensitive, some days down-right sore, and it gets worse with certain activities, (or wearing jeans!ugh!). I had a CT scan last month that showed nothing, but it did something to put my mind at ease (somewhat!). So it may just be scar tissue, or a pulled muscle, but, especially if it is a new pain, you need to get it checked out, stirrup phobia or not!!!!!
Good Luck & welcome.
