Travel Planned 4 Weeks Post-Hysterectomy

From Hysterectomy Recovery (post hysterectomy)

:jump:Hi there, We had planned a trip to Iceland for spring break long before my surgery was scheduled. We will head out at about 4 weeks post-op. Would love to know if anyone has any experience with travel about a month after surgery and what, if any, complications arose. What were your biggest issues? We're not doing anything too strenuous, and I can bow out of anything we deem harmful to recovery. We are taking jeeps out onto glaciers - that might be too bumpy. Thanks in advance for your suggestions! :jump::jump::jump:
