Thanks for your consult at Please help me with answers to the following -
For what indication was the hysterectomy performed ?
What is the histopathology report of the specimen that would have been sent ?
As such the picture provides no information, as I do not know what was your abdomen like before the surgery.
Well, if the scans are normal, then to a great extent, nothing major can be abnormal.
Try using a hot water bottle.
Mobilize yourself gradually.
Give yourself 6 - 8 weeks to recover completely from the surgery.
Please upload the scans that were done so that even I can have a look.
Look forward to hearing from you, Take care.
