Re: Cramping..Will it go away after surgery?

Hi! My GYN told me that my cramping will be gone after my surgery, since he's removing my uterus -- which is what is cramping right now. But clarify that with your doctor to be sure . . . and best of luck to you!

Re: Cramping..Will it go away after surgery?

My cramping went away but be aware that sometimes your nerves get caught in a cycle of pain and then cramping continues after surgery. It seems to be rare but it does happen. I was quite worried about this and did ask my surgeon as we were going into the operating room. I got the same answer as TangoRomeo. So I put it in my mind that I would have no cramping and I haven't. No idea if it is the mindset or what, but I am happy to be rid of my monthly cramps.

Interesting . . . I hadn't considered that, but it does make sense. Almost like a phantom pain, like amputees feel? Or are the nerves so used to being irritated that they don't know how to react to stimulus being gone? (sorry, thinking out loud!) thanks for sharing that piece of info. I hope none of us have to deal with it!

Re: Cramping..Will it go away after surgery?

I had terrible cramping and had a TVH on August 22. That cramping is gone for me, completely! Woo-hoo!

However, it's been replaced by soreness and some "cramps" from the surgery. I am sure it would depend on exactly why they are doing the hysterectomy for you, but my doc said I had adenomyosis, so since my uterus was causing pain and it is gone, the pain is gone.

Best of luck to you!

All my pre-op symptoms and pain are gone. They have been since I woke up. Especially my lower back pain!

Good Luck!

TangoRomeo - You pretty well got it right. It could be phantom pain or just simply that the nerves don't know how to react. I have read of times where you can reset the nerves somehow to stop the pain. I hope someone who knows a lot more about it than me comes along to explain it better.

Re: Cramping..Will it go away after surgery?

I actually had menstrual cramping the day of my surgery. I was in so much pain and couldn't take anything. My nurse laughed when I told her and said, "Well you wont have those any more".

I woke up after surgery and the only pain was related to surgery. My cramping now is associated with swelly belly if I do too much.
