4 Months Post Op/Back & Bladder Hurt if Sitting Too Long

Anyone out there feel fine until you sit too long. My job sometimes requires me to sit for long periods of time and this week was one of those periods. At first I thought my endometriosis came back, but when I was able to be up and around the pain went away. I think I have severe scar tissue that it pressing on my bladder which causes pain down my thigh and back.

Has anyone experienced this and if so is it scar tissue and what did you do?

4 Months Post Op/Back & Bladder Hurt if Sitting Too Long


I am 5 months post and still have problems when sitting for long periods. It almost feels like a pulled groin muscle or something stretching my bladder. When I spoke to my gyn about it some weeks ago she said it probably was adhesions or scar tissue forming. Unfortunately the only treatment for that is surgical lysis and then there is always the possibility of them reforming and even getting worse. It has lessened somewhat over time, but mostly I just try to avoid things I know cause discomfort. I know this isn't always possible. If it is something that concerns you, it is worth a call to your doctor. Good luck!

Hi, Ladies.

I've experienced bladder pain after sitting too long. Sometimes it feels like a pulling, burning sensation. If I lean forward and rest my elbows on my knees, the area on what I call the top of my bladder hurts.

Anyone with any suggestions?

Hi Monti,

Sorry to hear about your pain. After this surgery, I still had some soreness months after, if I was sitting for long periods of time. The thing that has helped me the most was getting regular exercise. Sometimes I feel really sore and I get that pulling feeling, (I feel like an 80 yr old woman,lol), then I do some stretching and walk a couple of miles, and amazingly the pain goes away (most times). I don't know if this will help but it's worth a try s Remember if pain persists, gets worse, or is concentrated in one area, to check it out with your dr. Hope you feel better!

Thank you ladies for your input. I am sad to hear that other Hysters have the same problem, but at the same time I am glad to be able to go to a place to get real information first before presenting it to my doctor. I have only had this happen to me a couple of times since my surgery and the first time was the first week back at work and now I have found, only after digging real deep to figure out the problem, that it is because I sit too long. I dread another surgery, only because I bruised so bad after my hysterectomy, so I will take all of your suggestions.

Thank you so much!
