Did I Overdo it after Hysterectomy?

From the Hysterectomy Recovery Articles List

Did I Overdo It after hysterectomyI have had an incredibly easy hysterectomy recovery, but yesterday I found myself back in bed and back on pain meds. Did I overdo it?

Through the years, many HysterSisters members have shared that they “hit a wall” at about 3–4 weeks post-op in their hysterectomy recovery timeline. One member reported, “I had been doing great. I was out moving around and beginning to do things; then all of a sudden I felt like a truck had hit me. I had sharp pains in my belly and back and no energy. I ended up staying in bed for almost a day and a half.”

In addition to following your doctor's orders “to the letter” concerning resuming your physical activity, it’s important to “listen to your body” and obey the signals it is sending you. If you feel achy and sore, go to bed and rest. All types of hysterectomies are major surgeries. Be smart and invest some time and patience in your recovery. Your good sense in this regard will likely serve you well in the weeks, months, and years to come.
