Cramping After Hysterectomies
armywifee posted:
Its been a year since Ive had a partial hysterectomy. They only took out my uterus and left my cervix and ovaries. Is it common to still have menstural cramps and feel like you're going to have a period?

Hi Army, and welcome to the board. Yes, it is very common for you to feel cramps and pain. If you don't mind sharing more info about yourself, we can help with advice a bit more.

Why did you have a hysto?
How old are you?

If you had it removed due to Endometriosis, I'm sorry to say that most women report having pain return within 6months to 1 year of their hysto's. When they leave the ovaries, you are still producing estrogen, which is what Endo feeds off of. It is very important to keep an eye on this, since your uterus is gone, Endo can grow anywhere in the body. Here is a website that you may find useful.

I hope you will keep us posted, and I hope you get some pain relief soon!!!

Best Wishes!!!
