Hi, I'm 32 years old. I have two children (7 & 2) and after delivering my second child there was a really complicated situation where I started bleeding a lot and was told that my uterus was inverted and was taken to the OR so the doctor would "push it back in place". I recovered and was told that it would be very risky to try to have children again. I thought about about an optional hysterectomy (if there is such a thing) a short time after delivery to avoid any problems in the future. However I have found myself thinking about it more often now because I have noted that after this inverted uterus situation I am very prone to abdominal pain every time I lift a heavy object, exercise heavily, and/ or bend down repetitively. Would a Hysterectomy be advisable if in fact this pain is being caused by an uterus that has being permanently damaged due to its inversion after delivery?
