If you want to learn more about the consequences of hysterectomy, contact the HERS Foundation at They are a non profit women's health org that educates the public about the damaging effects of this largely over-utilized, medically unecessary surgery. They have physician and lawyer referrals as well as a wealth of information about different treatment options for various diagnoses and post-hysterectomy coping strategies.

The uterus plays an integral role in your overall well being. Whether or not you decide to have your uterus removed, you should be informed of all treatment options and consequences, before agreeing to proceed with surgery. Some simple facts: The uterus is a hormone responsive sex organ that supports the pelvis, bladder, and bowel. Nerves, ligaments, and blood supply are severed, and the vagina is sutured shut at the top and made into a closed pocket. Loss of sexual feeling, weight gain, heart disease, osteoporosis, bladder and bowel problems are all common. No matter the type of hysterectomy performed, e.g. robotic, the functions of the uterus will be lost.

Get them repaired and sue the doc who did such damage...take second opinion from reputed gynecologists and surgeons to know what best can be done to repiar or correct the damage already done to you.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
The complications you are having due to bladder and sigmoid colon injury during hysterectomy can only be tackled by your operating surgeons as they only know what was the damage done and what will be the remedy now.
