Three years ago I had a hysterectomy - abdominal and not keyhole. I am now starting to get crampy, period type pains very low down in my abdomen just above the pubic bone. Reading online it sounds like adhesions.
Is it worth seeing the GP for? No change in bowel habits, not vomiting, nothing to indicate an obstruction. Just crampy pain. I am als overweight and trying to do something about that, drink more water and eat more fibre.
Don't have any direct experience,but I think if you are concerned enough to be googling,you should see your GP.
Hi, I alos have adhesions and think it sounds like it, especially as it was open not keyhole. (you get more after that). there is not much they can do about it, having more surgery just makes more as it is internal scar tissue. So, they told me would only operate if e.g a bowel obstruction. I have had those before which needed surgery, but it has settled down a bit now. I have some co codomol if it flares up but I try and avoid as it can be addictive and cause constipation.
I find heat can help. and thing like yoga / pilates to strengthen the surrounding area and helps with pain a bit also.
