Hi, my mother had undergone hysterectomy operation before a year but after 6 months arms ache started in one hand. Slowly it started increasing and now she is not able to lift her hand completely up. The pain is also getting in the other hand as well.

Hi Missie,

Thanks for your prompt reply and your interest in solving others problem. Yes she has seen a doctor but we are not very much convinced with the saying of the doctor as they say she will have to take injection in the bone which will be extremely painful. Apart from this there was a separate incident in which my uncle was given injection in bones and after few years that part of of the bone became senseless.

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. I am sorry to hear about your Mother's pain. After doing some research about your question, I cannot find a coorelation between the arm pain you are questioning and side effects of a hysterectomy. However, the pain in her arms can be associated with some other issues such as rotator cuff (shoulder issues) and she should really be seen by a doctor. Have you seen a doctor for her pain? What has the doctor said?

Good luck,
