Hi to all, I am new to this but have been reading your posts and have found them very helpful and some of them very entertaining. I had a VH 5 weeks ago and i have ben fine up until yesterday when i started having period like pains and a really sore back, is this normal? I am getting abit worried now because its not easing off.

Call your doctor and let them know of your pain. any pain that you did not feel before needs to be reported.

Are you doing too much?

Maybe it's hormonal, but only your doc can tell you.

Please call them

Wishing you well throughout your recovery.

Definitely give your doctor a call with any new pain you might experience. It could just be your internal stitches dissolving, or if you kept your ovaries, you could be going through ovulation, but it's better to be on the safe side and let your doctor decide what's up.

Hi Lola

Did you keep your ovaries? If so this pain could be related to your ovaries kicking back in. But like the others i sugest you get in contact with your doctor. Good luck.

I am having the same problem. I had a LSO then a TAH/RSO three weeks ago and this past week I have been having the same kind of cramping as well as back pain. I was hoping it was just from over doing it but now I think I will call my doctor to see what he thinks. I sure hope it isn't the endo acting up again...grrrr.
