Patients undergone either laparoscopic or vaginal hysterectomy will called for a clinical examination 1-3 years after surgery, if they suffer from pain 6 months after surgery. All patients were treated in Pirkanmaa District Hospital and the anesthesia was either propofol-infusion or sevoflurane gas with remifentanil-infusion.
6months after the surgery, questionnaires about pelvic pain were sent to the patients. Patients still having pain at that time, were invited for detailed sensory and gynecological examinations.
