Hi there. I'm 3 months post total laparoscopic hysterectomy and bowel resection. I had sex for the first time since surgery and bled a lot and was in severe pain throughout my whole abdomen. Bad enough that I called the doc on call. She was the nurse practitioner and blamed it on dry vagina. It can't possibly hurt that much and that wide spread from just being dry can it? Has anyone else had pain after surgery caused by sex?
