Should I Be Concerned?

Hello It's been a while since I've posted in this site. But I had a TAH on one year ago and I am having cramps like if I was having my period. I don't know if this is normal or not. Please help me get some answers.

Hi Princess

Sorry you are having cramps :-(

If you kept your ovaries it is possible that you now have a cysts..... or you could just have pulled something.

Have the cramps just started or have you had them right along? Did you keep your ovaries? I think it would be a good idea to discuss this with your doctor as s/he knows what would be normal for you.

Ovarian cysts can cause period like cramping. I just went through that (a few months of cramping) and my best friend is too. The ultrasound taken in October showed a cyst with two eggs, a probable hemorrhagic cyst and a 7mm solid area. However, after surgery, my doctor said he only found a follicle cyst and an big deal. That said, there are probably other causes of cramping. When in doubt, call your doctor. Good luck.

Thank you all for all the great answers.
I did keep my ovaries, and I have felt the cramps on and off during the year but this past week they were intense and I worry because I never did have a check up after the surgery and it's been a little over a year now.
I also changed health plans and have to see a new group of DR. I do have an appointment this Friday to see the gyno. I hope everything turns out fine. I am praying.
Thanks and I hope everyone has a great and Happy Thanksgiving.
