Sciatica

Hi
Now, that I have two weeks more to obsess... I was wondering if anyone else suffers from sciatica?
The pain is worse when I have my period and now that it's been over for almost two days, I'm still having pain. Just wondering if it has anything to do with the endo, adeno & fibroids I have.
I guess I'm just hoping for some relief from this pain too!
Thanks
~Laura

Re: Sciatica

My back "went out" several times in the months leading up to my surgery. I had to miss work three times, and was in a lot of discomfort for a lot of the time. Since the surgery, I have occasionally had some tightness, but nothing that made it difficult to get through my day. I just needed to be careful. I think that the fibroid-filled uterus was pressing against things and causing my back pain. I hope you have the same success that I did!

Re: Sciatica

I guess it is a possibility, especially if your uterus is enlarged. I have spinal stenosis, so I know your pain. Physical therapy has done wonders for me. Good luck!

Re: Sciatica

I have sciatica but the hysterectomy/fibroid removal did nothing to improve it. In fact, I had a flare a few weeks into post-op from all the bed rest. It really depends on what is causing your sciatica. Mine is due to a budging disk in my lower spine. If I apply an ice pack to my lower spine a few times, it clears right up until the next flare.

Re: Sciatica

It is very possible that the surgery may help it too. It just depends how the uterus is laying and basically what parts its squishing! I had sciatica and extreme lower back pain upon waking in the mornings, and since my hyst in December I've had neither. I hope the same for you as well because I sure wasn't expecting those to go away! Just another thing to be thankful for and to make the glass half full.

Hi!
I hope that I have the same result! I have those problems in addition to the dull sciatic pain everyday. Not to mention, the excruciating pain during my period.
I'm very nervous about the hyster.
Any advice about sex & the big O??? Weight gain??
Lol!!
Thanks

Re: Sciatica

Sex for me is better than ever. Before, if he went too deep, it put pressure on my cervix, and I felt the discomfort right into my belly-button. Lots of positions were not possible, but now it's no-holds barred. The big O is different, but still very good. Longer lasting and more intense, but it takes a bit more work to get there.

I'm still trying to figure out the weight gain part myself, I haven't actually changed my weight from before the surgery, but if I weren't eating according to strict lifestyle changes (I refuse to say I'm dieting) and exercising 4 or 5 times a week, I think I'd be in a different place. Someone else may be better able to help you there, and I'll be watching for something that might also help me.

Re: Sciatica

I'm 4 1/2 weeks post LAVH and was hoping that it would solve my sciatica problems, but unfortunately I'm in the third day of some serious hip/leg pain. So frustrating. Back to the drawing board on that issue.
