I have constant vaginal pain and pelvic pain.
Besides nerves what else could be broken in me?

Do GYN's fix damaged nerves or is it some other specialist?

Which nerves are involved in a LAVH/RSO? Which specific nerves are tampered with?

Scar Tissue pain, can anyone describe this?

Would an Endometriosis specialist be capable of handling LAVH/RSO complications?

What type of Doctor do you follow-up with for Hysterectomy complications? I would think a GYN but I have been told I am wrong?

So what are your thoughts?

"It is also critical that patients are completely evaluated by psychological, gastrointestinal, urological, gynecological, myofascial and musculoskeletal exams to avoid the risk that they may undergo an unnecessary procedure."

I had adhesions. They were pretty painful, pulling, swelling with a very hard bump, they hurt pretty much all the time whenever I moved. My OB/GYN sent me to a general surgeon who did an ultrasound to see what was causing my pain and I had them removed laprascopically. I feel great now. All back to normal and it's been 7 mos. for me.

How many months post op of your hysterectomy were you when you began seeking help?

I have had this pain since DAY 1 and it is ALWAYS here.

A nurse practioner said I have obviuos nerve "DAMAGE" as a "DIRECT RESULT OF YOUR HYSTERECTOMY" so could I have adhesions from hours after the surgery to date?

I don't t hink adhesions can form in hours. I would start with your internist or gynecologist, not because they can necessarily treat this but because they can probably point you in the right direction for which specialist(s) you do need to see.
If it is nerve damage, you might need to see some kind of pain specialist...but I'm not a doc so I have no idea.

How can they say that? Yes, adhesions can form soon after, but it is really difficult to know exactly when and how they form. Even if the adhesions formed from day 1, how can you know that your pain from day 1 was from adhesions and not from healing and the major surgery you just had? It can take quite some time for those adhesions to form, it is usually where they form and if they attach to any organs that can cause problems. Therefore; I doubt your problem from day 1 was from adhesions. But I am not a doctor or a nurse practioner. I suggest you ask your doctor and not a NP for an educated opinion on what your problem is.

I have nerve damage, but it was not diagnosed until years later. I had to go thru many tests and treatments to get the diagnosis. I did not just walk into my doctor's office and have the NP say "you have nerve damage as a direct result of your hysterectomy". Something just does not sound right with that statement.

Best wishes to you. I hope you find the answers you are seeking.

See I thought the same thing? I have been in every scanning machine and doctors office and if my vagina were a clock... MY right side being 6 - 12 and MY left being 1-6


The GYN says I am fine.

The GP says something is REALLY WRONG.

The NP (Woman to Woman Healthcare) says 7-11 has nerve damage as I mentioned before. How she would know this I do not know but I am wearing down mentally, emotionaly and physically! This is a mess! If the pain is always ion the same spot and NEVER GOES AWAY (even with narcotic use, which I have x-out as of last friday for scary and aggressive thoughts and dreams)It shouldn't be this hard to fix me, there is not much left in there but an ovary covered in cysts?

if you think you have nerve damage, you should see a neurologist. did you have a pelvic emg? have any of your dr's ever prescribed nerve medication like neurontin to see if you got any relief?

a good place to start would be a neurologist that specializes in nerve damage. good luck!
