School drop off and childcare (vaginal cuff concerns)

From Preparing for Hysterectomy (pre hysterectomy)

Hi! I plan on having full-time help with my kids (7 and 5, boys) for two weeks after my surgery. I think I might need help for one or two more weeks after that, but I keep hearing conflicting advice. My doctor said when I'm off pain medication, I can drive. But other people say wait three weeks. I'm also paranoid about tearing my vaginal cuff in dealing with rambunctious boys. Seems like I am always bending or reaching or twisting in trying to keep up with them and prevent accidents. ;) Anyone else with young, energetic children that had DaVinci? What did your recovery period look like? Thanks!
