Recovery from Robotic-Assisted Hysterectomy

Hi all. I had a robotic assisted hysterectomy on December 26. After the first 4 days post-op, I definitely turned the corner. My mother passed away on the 6th, so there was really little downtime for me, but I pushed through and found that I had to listen to my body. If it hurt, I didn't push it. I stopped all pain meds the 5th day - but still am taking an occasional Ibuprofen (600 mg) at night. I tend to swell up at night but each day is definitely better than the day before.

I wish all of you well.

Re: Recovery from Robotic-Assisted Hysterectomy

Good news! sorry about the loss of your mother, I am sure that that is extra hard to deal with on top of surgery, but you need to concentrate on getting better like you are, and you have plenty of quiet/down time to think of her!
