Problems After Hysterectomy: Abdominal Pain & Cramps
I had a total abdominal hysterectomy 3 years ago but now for the past year I have been having bad abdominal pain and cramps I have gone to a gastrointestinal Dr and to my ob and both have said they don't see anything but my gastrointestinal Dr gave me some glycopyrrolate 1mg twice a day before it was every few months now it's more often like after intercourse sometimes I feel so bad the cramps is bad please tell me what could be going on.

I'm actually heading back into my doctor (after months of physical therapy & manual therapy (I think it's been like myofascial release) — it's likely looking like the options would be to continue therapy, live with it or exploratory surgery with the thought that the pain is being caused by scar tissue – maybe adhesions. Has anyone dealt with surgery for scar tissue/adhesions?
So, I have started with cramps but I had a full hysterectomy (due to endometriosis) in 2016 and I also have no ovaries.(due to cysts and ruptures) It literally feels like endometriosis cramping but last time I talked to the doctor he said scar tissue(but did no tests) I do have a slightly prolapsed bladder but this pain doesn't feel like it at all, but who knows. I see a new family doctor this Tuesday should I bring it up to her and if so what questions should I ask. Maybe I'm missing something. I've searched but everything I'm finding is with someone who has their ovaries still. Any thoughts or advice???
@sunflower83 What you described sounds so uncomfortable and awful to me. I'm assuming that after the hysterectomy the pain and cramping you felt prior to surgery had gone away. I think you are wise to talk with another doctor. Since you are starting with a new primary care physician tomorrow (Tuesday, January 24?) this certainly something to bring up. If I were you I would want another opinion as it appears that your first doctor wasn't very responsive to your concerns.
Will you come back and let me know what your new primary care physician says about the cramping?
I had a hysterectomy 8 months ago but having period cramps
Should I worry.
Should I worry having anxiety wondering. My uterus was was attach to my bladder.
I had a hysterectomy because I Couldn't stop bleeding cramping was horrible always having problems so I had a hysterectomy. But know I am cramping like period cramps.
I’m an older female and had a total hysterectomy in 2005, so it’s been some years ago. I have blood in my urine daily and really bad period cramps and so much bloating especially at night. My right side worse than the left side. I also have an artery that had a vein grow into it which happens to be low on my right side. So far nothing has shown up on ultra sounds but the artery and vein. Does anyone have any idea what this might be?

Welcome @delia22, I moved your question about bloating, cramping and pelvic pain along with blood in your urine years after a total yesterectomy to this existing discussion:

I did this so you can read previous posts and connect easily with fellow members of the Women's Health support group like @cherelle @sunflower83 @amyoonlee @patram7 @robinw @cleeper2390 @saranye @goldilocks22 and others.
It sounds like you have seen a doctor. Blood in urine should be investigated. Have you seen your gynecologist?
