You shouldn't be having pain from the hysterectomy after 8 weeks. Where in the left side is the pain.
Thanks for the additional information. As you proabably know, your uterus and left ovary were no where in that region, so any discomfort would not be associated with scar tissue formation or other fall-out from the hysterectomy.
Pain in that area is most likely a digestive issue. It could be gas. There is little in that area but the stomach, spleen and colon. The possibilites would include things lke ulcer, pancreatitis, biliary colic, constipation, gas, and many other things. If it doesn't improve or gets worse, you would need to see your primary provider.
Gee, that is unusual. While it is common for gas to be better/worse depending on how you move, the pins and needles feeling on the skin isn't something you hear about associated with it. Pins and needles sounds more like nerve pain. On a scale of 0-10 with 0 being no pain, how painful is it?
I think you really need to have a hands-on exam. Your primary provider will be fine since this is unlikely to be from the surgery. I wish I could tell you what is causing it, but someone needs to see you in person and poke around in your upper abdomen (not pleasant, I know), perhaps order an ultrasound and other tests to see what's going on in there.
You're so very welcome. Hope it feels better soon!
