Pain

I had a hysterectomy in jan and is still having abdominal pain.i remember that when i left the hospital to come home that she didn't give me any antibiotics.So a week after i left i was really sick and couldn't keep down any liquid.Was she supposed to let me go home like that.

Hello nikki039,

Antibiotics are not normally perscribed after hysterectomy. If  a source of infection was noted at the time of surgery or the surgical field was contaminated then antibiotics may be considered post-op.
