back/hip pain possibly related to a hysterectomy?



  • The answer is yes. Especially if you had a vaginal or a lap-assisted vag hysterectomy. the problem appears to be the positioning on the operating table in these type of surgeries. If this is the case with you, you may want to google "lithotomy position". I believe that this is the positioning that damages the back. My hysterectomy has wrecked my life as a result of damage to my SI joint. And I feel that the surgeons do not realize this. We all end up in pain management, not back in the ob-gyns office.
