Re: Bending after robotic hysterectomy

I had a TAH with a vertical cut and was never told not to bend. I was able to bend a few days after surgery, but slowly and not all the way. I could bend to drop food in the dogs dish etc. I think it really depends on what your body allows. Some women just can't bend at all as their body rebels.

Re: Bending after robotic hysterectomy

and

If you weren't given specific instructions (some are, some aren't), as your body allows. I had laparoscopic surgery, and couldn't bend due to swelling, and it just wasn't comfortable. I'd get down to the floor when needed by kneeling.

Since you've just joined us, you might find these resources helpful in knowing what to expect during these first weeks:I'd also like to invite you to connect with your Recovery Thread for women who had surgery the same week as you at Recovery Progress Reports for July 27-Aug 02. Recovery Threads are wonderful for getting support, comparing notes, encouraging others, and keeping one another company.
