I had a hysterectomy by keyhole surgery 2 weeks ago - not for the usual reasons tho. My vagina was fused at the top making smear testing impossible for some years. My surgeon said that usually after having children, all the muscles and ligaments are lax, but in my case everything was taut and rigid, making surgery very difficult! My uterus was also bent back and fused to the wall of the vagina. My question is - could this be anything to do with my RA?? The surgeon mentioned simething about unusuak connective tissues, but he didn't really know. I know it's academic now but I am just curious!
