Is it normal to have excessive pain post hysterectomy?
Need more details.
Hi dear and thanks for your query.
I can understand your concern.
In fact you shouldn't be on pain on day 5 after laparoscopic hysterectomy, but please give me some details and I will try to help you.
Where is the pain localisation?
Do you have any other symptoms, like temperature, nausea ect?
Is your tummy tender?!
Did you have any urinary or defecation issue?
Did percocet relive pain?
Kindly provide these details to help me arrive at a diagnosis.
Waiting for your reply.
Pain just seemed to be all over my abdomen, would move as I moved. Just couldn't be comfortable no matter what. Think some of it was gas pain. Pain in vagina would only be there dependent on my position.
Have had no fever, but I almost always get nausea when I have pain or take pain medications & Zofran don't help it much. Yea, I'm still tender over incision sites (especially one that is upper right abdomen) but figure that will decrease as bruising subsides.
The Percocet did help with the pain, I just hadn't had to take any during the daytime for the prior two days (only taking at night as the worst pain I have is moving around in bed trying to sleep).
I haven't taken anything for pain today, and unless something changes will not be.
Hi dear again and I'm glad to read that you feel better.
While you haven't temperature and other signs and symptoms and you feel better ,pain or discomfort should improve over time .
Abdominal pain can be due to gas pain .
Hence in my opinion you should try to :
1.avoid uncomfortable positions or activities
2.support your abdomen with a folded blanket or pillow
3.a high fiber diet may help
All the best
Any other recommendations?
Any recommendations for preventing problems if I ever have to have surgery in future? Time before this (removal of GB) I had an ileus eight days later. This was about 10 days post surgery.

While you have been constipated even if you have used a lot of water ,please considerate these advice:
1.Exercises ,Increasing exercise is also important if you lead a sedentary lifestyle
2.Mild laxatives as lactulose
3.A gentle enema using warm water or mineral oil may also be helpful.
Hemorrhoids can be relived by using Sitz baths adding betadine and put sterile gauze to keep them dry .
