Hello Helen.

There are many changes a woman experiences post-hysterectomy, some of which disappear a few days post-op, whereas, a few stay much longer.

This varies from woman to woman and can be considered long-term side effects of the surgery.

Although it is not considered common for women to experience a presentation similar to yours 4 weeks post-op. I would thus recommend you to visit your doctor and get yourself checked, just to be on the safer side.

Hope this helps.

Take care.
