Clinical Analysis of Pain After Hysterectomy
Chronic Pain After Hysterectomy, Qualitative Analysis of Pain and Its Impact on Quality of Life

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. The aims of the study are:

  1. to reveal whether the pain is postsurgical in nature, or if there are any other reasons for the pain.
  2. to reveal the type of pain, neuropathic, nociceptive or idiopathic.
  3. to reveal the impact of pain on quality of life.

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.
