Post hysterectomy pelvic pain

I had a hysterectomy 2 years ago which left me with chronic pelvic pain. I have been to 13 doctors, pt, exploratory lap, epidurals, lots of narcotics, interstim implant, etc, etc.

I watched a news video about a woman in Detroit Mich. USA who went for special physical therapy. Turns out she had muscle spasms in her pelvic floor muscles. Her trouble started after her hysterectomy just like me! That will be my next mission to find someone that will do that in my area. Does anyone have any information about this?

  • Did you see this on a US website ? I think i may have been in touch with this person - can you remember her name ?


  • The Pelvic Messenger Online Radio by PelvicMessenger | Blog Talk Radio This is the website I found it on. I will have to do some searching to find the report again.

    It's one more resource for us.

  • The only name I remember is Ruth Love-Jones who is in Southampton I believe, second hand info but I'm sure she has a web site or contact details on internet at least. In the back of my mind two more names are there 1 in Manchester I think and there was talk about Dr Baranowski in London hoping to set up some pelvic physio for patients. Will try and find out who the others are.

    Judy, Elizabeth Oas from mentioned you in an e to me She gets some very good people on her show. Have a few to catch up on tho'.

  • I have been searching her site for the show that spoke about the physical therapist. I will email her. I am going to try it again. I won't give up!

  • A recentish one was Stephanie Predergast (I thought was v good)

    and Amy Stein (haven't listened yet, ooops)

  • I have seen the name Camilla Bouverie at Six Physio.

    Maria Elliott at White Hart clinic in Barnes


  • Thank you all for your input, I live in the USA so it would be difficult to see someone in the UK although I hope to visit your great country some day! At least if the economy here ever gets better!!!

    Thank you all

  • There are quite a lot of pelvic pain phyios in the US - in which part of the states are you based ? We know of Uk patients who have been to the states for physio.

    The radio programmes make some good points but there are a few things I want to check out, thanks Helen. Stephanie talks a bit about the Istanbul meeting - I was there with Julia, one of our trustees and have met Stephanie on a few occasions at other meetings.

  • Atlanta Georgia.

  • I keep asking about Botox for this internal muscle spasm but no-one replies to me. Is there anyone that has had this treatment please let me know.

  • What country do you live in ? I had this in France and don't know of anyone in the UK who is doing it for pain.
