How much can you lift and when after oophorectomy?

I can't remember when it's safe to lift 10 pounds after laparoscopic surgery (had oopherectomy 4 weeks ago). I think it's 4 weeks....? Yes, brain fog.....

Re: How much can you lift and when after oophorectomy?

That depends on your Drs instructions. I could lift 20 lbs after one week, no limits after 2 weeks, but it sounds like you got different instructions that were more restrictive? Might be worth looking at your post op instructions or calling the Drs office to be sure.

Re: How much can you lift and when after oophorectomy?

I think I was told no lifting for 10 days after mine, I don't remember how many pounds but I have a four year old - but don't push it. I did too much too soon and now have an umbilical hernia.

Re: How much can you lift and when after oophorectomy?

I was told 6 weeks before I did anything involving real lifting or core work. But I also had a vertical cut so that may have made my wait longer
