I had a hysterectomy several years ago due to fibroids. I had an abdominal hyst.
My ovaries were left in tact. After the hyst. I have never felt worse. My whole
life has changed. I have abdominal pains, cannot sleep on either of my sides,
sleep with a heating pad on my stomache, feel pain in my abdomen, feel as if
I have a flu most of the time, feel stabbing pains, have no energy, do not feel
like doing anything physical, have no desire to have sex, gag when I brush
my teeth, and just plain hurt in my abdominal area.

Now, before this happened, I was an active person; outside of a nerve disease
I was inflicted with also, but the abdominal pains were not there with this, I
could sleep on either side of my body, I did not gag when I brushed my teeth,
and my husband and I had a great sex life. I have a long story to explain, but
I do know outside of my nerve disease (which I question why the doctor did a
hyst. on me knowing I had this nerve disease/syndrome) there is something
physically wrong after this hyst. in my abdominal area. I also had an open]
wound infection in my left ankle area previously this year. I was put on IV
antibiotics for about 4 weeks daily with a PICC unit. I, for that brief time
being on those antibiotics, felt night and day better in my abdomen area.
I am wondering if I have an infection in my abdomen - maybe leakage or
something - I do not know. Why would I feel so much better when on these
two antibiotics. After I went off of them, I went back to feeling the same -
even worse than before. I need answers and help. Can anyone? Oh, and
another thing - I have lower back pains after the hyst. which I never had
before. If I bend over for very long, I hurt tremendously. All this after the
hyst., but never had this before. I welcome any ideas and help.
