abdominal hysterectomy

How long does it take for abdominal hysterectomy stitches to heal? It is nearly 6 weeks and I am still experiencing pain and discomfort in the area of the stitches. I have inspected the outer cut and it looks healed.The stitches have been removed after 4 weeks but does the internal healing take too long? due to which I am feeling still sore and not entirely normal even to sit or sleep comfortably? Mentally I feel very active but physically I do not feel like doing any work even the basic tasks gets me fedup and tired. Please advise.... Tessie

Hi Tessie, it sounds like you are healing normally! I was so incredibly frustrated after my hysterectomy. I felt mentally ready to be up running around, doing things, but my body healed more slowly than my mind. I didn't have abdominal surgery, I had an LAVH, I appeared healed (even my 3 puncture holes), but even at 2 months I was very tired and could round around and do errands all day.

You need to remember it can take months for your body to finish healing inside. You'll feel better, but you still need to take it carefully.

A hysterectomy is major surgery. They have removed an organ that it at least the size of your fist. Give your body time to heal. You only have one chance to let your body heal correctly.

Take care!
