I see each and every patient back in my clinic at one week and four weeks after any type of hysterectomy. Any patient who calls my office after I have operated on them is seen immediately for any and all complaints. This patient never apprised me of any pain issues after her surgery. She had a perfectly normal recovery and indicated to me at each post operative visit that she was doing well and that she continued to improve and that she was happy with the outcome from her surgery.
