Is painful and swollen back with numb leg common after vaginal hysterectomy?

Hello. I am post op 5 weeks from a vaginal hysterectomy. uterus and cervix removed. I have been feeling great with exception of swelling in my abdomen area. Today something new is happening. Both lower sides of my back are painful even to touch and I m VERY swollen in my back as well. My left leg is also hurting like it wants to go numb. Should I go to the ER because its Saturday? Or is this normal. Help.

Hello,

When was the procedure done? If the symptoms that you have described are immediately after the procedure, please get an X-ray of the back done just to see if there is any collection.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Haleema Yezdani, General & Family Physician
