What causes shoulder pain and headache after vaginal hysterectomy?

I had a vaginal hysterectomy on July 16,2014. I kept my ovaries. I am 59, 7 years post menopausal. I felt good 10 days post op and walked up an incline resulting in lower back pain for 5 days. Once better, I returned to work, 2 weeks post op. As of 4 days of work I felt horrible. Lower left back pain, tired, left shoulder pain, and neck and headache pain and burning eyes throughout the day. I ve been resting for 6 days and don t feel much better. Is this common post op set back symptoms or could I have something seriously wrong.

dont worry...

all these symptomps are not due to hysterectomy...

theren can be a possibility that you can have infectionin your body..but this is not serious..
headache can be due to high BP. so check your BP..
ALL THESE CAN OCCUR DUE TO CALCIUM DEFICIENCY AT THESE AGE...

SO START TAKING CALCIUM DAILY...IT MAY IMPROVE YOUR BONY SYMPTOMPS...

IF PROBLEM IS MUCH MORE, THEN CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR FOR CHECK UP.

THANKS
