Hysterectomy after inverted uterus.

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?

Hi there ,,hope to offer some help..for some unknown reason,,trauma of birth casued uterus to go either right or left of bladder instead of on top.

I would definatley not advise a hysterectomy,,,its a very difficult surgery and should be last option...

Perhaps your uterus has shifted again or prolapsed....a friend of mine runs the pelvic prolapse forum...Id suggest you cut and paste your post and see what she says..

sounds like a ultra-sound trans abdominal and trans vaginal shoule be advised.

good luck and I am pretty sure this can be fixed w/o a hysterectomy...
