Backache 2wks after hysterectomy

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi, 

     Had a hysterectomy and bladder repair on the 13th of December, I’m in so much pain with my back 😥 I’ve been walking as much as I can but it’s not getting any better, I’m taking anti inflammatory and paracetamol, is anyone else suffering back pain ?

    Hysterectomy on December 15. Back pain began 1 week later. Needed more pain meds than post-op. Started improving some on Christmas day but still taking pain med daily. Planning to request physical therapy.

      I was thinking of maybe having that, I have always suffered with a bad back but since this op it’s been terrible, hope yours get’s better soon. 🤗

    Stop walking so much and rest! It's very early days your body is telling you to slow down. Don't lift anything over 5 lbs, accept all offers of help. Good luck.

    Hello!

    I had my hysterectomy Sept. 2016. I always had associated my lower back pain with my periods. Now since i don't have that anymore i dont get what is happening with my lower back? If I stand to long I can hardly bend over or bend down. I am in a lot of pain and my back feels if i bend over its just gonna disconnect from my body. I am having this lower back pain too! Thank You
