Abdominal Hysterectomy Side Effects

After having an abdominal hysterectomy, many women experience swelling, bruising, and pain in the abdominal area which usually clears up in a few days. Complications from a hysterectomy are not common, but like any operation you should watch for an unexpected reaction to anesthesia, infection, bleeding from the incision site, and blood clot development. If you feel you have signs of complications, you should contact your doctor for follow up.
