Family Asks Questions
More questions from family members, asking about an upcoming hysterectomy:
Q: Should I plan to take time off from my job when my wife comes home from the hospital?
A: Ideally, the patient should have someone with her for several days upon arriving home. She will tire easily and her movement will be limited in those first days home. Her main focus is on resting and pain control during this time. If there are small children in the home, she will require someone there to look after them, prepare meals, etc.
