Post Hysterectomy - some advice if possible

Hi everyone, 

I am 11 days post Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy with Salpingo-Oopherectomy and I just don't feel right.

The gas pain after the surgery was worse than any actual surgery pain, which has been pretty much nothing to be honest. I have a wonderful consultant and my surgery was straightforward.

I am having digestive issues, I feel nauseous and I have a very up and down appetite. I have had digestive issues most of my life which I controlled very well with diet etc but this has exasterbated them again. I am watching what I do eat etc but just wondered if anyone else really suffered with this post surgery.

I do have a telephone consultation booked with a doctor tomorrow but just wanted to ask how long others suffered with this type of pain for. i should say that it is worse in the morning and does ease off after Ive been to the loo but I am just stressed out about it. I feel like its never going to go away or back to normal. I dont feel like I am ever going to feel well again.

I realise Im in surgical menopause too.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hopefully your digestive issues have settled

i had a radical hysterectomy after being diagnosed with 1b cancer at 35. The trapped gas post surgery  was one of the most horrendous things I've experienced. Took about a month before I settled down and lost a stone in weight. I'm a year on now and all check ups have come back clear. I hope you've had no more issues. I can totally empathise with the pain you were having.
