recovery from a TVH is four to six weeks, with full recovery taking anywhere from 6 months to a year.
While everyone heals at different paces, you should really try to take it easy during that initial period of time, as any damage done to your body during that time can cause complications which can sometimes take weeks, months, or even years to manifest.
Walking is one of the best things you can do post-op, but you'll want to start out slowly and only walk 1/2 as far as you feel that you can manage (since you still have to turn around and come back!
) As for digging ditches, that is such streneous work that you'd need to wait at least a couple of months before tackling that one.
One important thing to remember is that you only get one chance to heal properly, and if you overdo it too soon, you can't go back and undo the damage. So plan on being a good
for a couple of months, and you'll be back to normal and feeling great before you know it.
Best wishes and
