Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hi Peggy. How may I help?
Can you describe it to me? What brings it on, or makes it better or worse? Any other symptoms? Any other medical problems besides the hysterectomy?
Any urinary or stool symptoms/? Any fevers or chills
On a scale of 1 to 10, how severe is it?

Do you have a local emergency room or urgent care center you can get to promptly/?
If your pain is that severe, I would not wait long to get it evaluated. Pain is always a sign of an underlying problem. Do you have other questions?
OK, let me know if I can be of further help.
