Hi thanks for your question.
There could be few reasons for your post hysterectomy
pain abdomen. First reason could be the surgical pain of incision. The second reason could be omentum ( a free fat laden tissue of abdomen) may have got stuck to incision. Since the site of pain is above navel, so third cause could be post operative stress induced hyper-acidity.Vicodin
is combination of acetaminophen
,a very effective pain killer. The first 2 type of pain will responds to vicodine and third type of pain needs antacids and proton pump
blocker. You can discuss the issue with your operating surgeon during your schedule follow up.
Hope this answers your question
