I am 5 weeks post-op from my hysterectomy, everything was removed with the exception of the ovaries. I have had horrible insomnia since my surgery, and it seems like every night I'm falling asleep later and later. I am already on Ambien and have been for quite some time, prior to my surgery, and it no longer helps me fall asleep. I have even tried over the counter sleeping meds on top of it, and nothing still. Also, I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, and my joint pain has significantly increased since my surgery as well. I finally had the pain under control prior to my hysterectomy, and now its worse than before. Has anyone else had these symptoms?
