Yes, it's very possible to get diseases and/or infections after a hysterectomy.

The vagina is capable of cleaning itself making regular douching unnecessary. Regular vaginal douching can change the delicate chemical balance of the vagina and making a woman more susceptible to infections. Check with your doctor before douching.

I would ask the dr to run a blood test on your thyroid, bad circulation, hair loss and exhaustion are all signs of hypothryrodism. Its an easy fix with a small pill each day.

I think the surgery can cause our thyroid gland to get a little mixed up!

Did she run a full thyroid panel or just TSH? A full panel thyroid panel gives much more detailed info. Your TSH can be fine, but one of the other T hormones can be off and that can cause symptoms. Which hormones were checked?
