1. when the ligaments which holds the uterus in place are removed during hysterectomy it causes the rib cage to fall forward toward the hip bone,leading to loss of curve of the lower back causing chronic low back ache,hip and rib cage pain along with narrowing of spinal canal.
2. go for an X-ray LS spine and MRI of lumbo sacral spine for any degenerative/ pathological changes.
