Cramps after hysterectomy?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Total laparoscopic hysterectomy on 3/1 and I’m having period like cramps with low back pain. Oddly this pain started the day I would have gotten my period 3/15. Is it even possible to still have monthly cramps without ovaries and a uterus or is this likely just post-op pain?

    I’m not sure, I did have slight cramps after surgery that was it. I heard of cramps around the time the cycle is do, my co- worker calls it “fake period” time.

    Despite the fact that your ovaries have been removed, you still have a bit of estrogen in your system.  However, I think what you're experiencing is probably your body trying to knit itself together.  You've had major surgery so please give yourself time to rest and heal.  Best to discuss this with your doctor. xx

    I really don't think it about your cycle.you have no ovaries or uterus.

    You will be still healing, you have a way to go yet. I'm 9 wks from tvh and repair and I still ghost internal stitches coming away. You need to rest.
