Hi Receive,

Thanks for your post!

Complications of a Hysterectomy include:

Reactions to anesthesia
Injured pelvic organs (bowel and/or bladder)
Urinary incontinence (problems controlling your urine)
Loss of ovarian function and early menopause
Sexual dysfunction

Growing breasts are not a complication, however, it is something that can be observed post-hysterectomy, due to the hormones. Some women even have milk come in sometimes.

Even though this is something that women have experienced after a hysterectomy, please call your doctor just to make sure that this is something expected and not something that would require attention.

Best of luck,
