Post-Hysterectomy

A hysterectomy is a surgery to remove a woman’s uterus. During the surgery the whole uterus is usually removed. Your doctor may also remove your fallopian tubes and ovaries. After a hysterectomy, you no longer have menstrual periods and cannot become pregnant.

Post Hysterectomy Complications:

  • Abdominal bloating
  • Abdominal pain
  • Scar tissue
  • Hip pain
  • Sacral pain
  • Decreased hip mobility
  • Low back pain
  • Pelvic floor pain

Pelvic floor physical therapy can address all of the above dysfunctions and teach the patient how to strengthen the surrounding structures to compensate for the newly created “space” within the abdominal cavity.
