I had suregery, a omplete hysterectomy 3 1/2 months ago. I only took off for 2 weeks and I am now having severe pain like bad crampls and a coming and going pain in my back. It actually makes me double over at times. I have a orthpedic appt. on Friday but my husband seems to think it might be scar tissue. I am very type A and not used to being out of commission so I didn't rest likeI should have after my surgery. I am not sure what to do but muscle relaxer don't even touch the pain.
Not resting after a hysterectomy is a big no-no. That said, the pain you are having may not be related to the surgery or lack of rest.
Does the pain feel like it is in your bones, muscles or something else? You mention an ortho appt so that sounds like you think it is skeletal.
