Stand Up Straight ?

Hello Sisters,

Has anyone has been told by their doctors that following surgery you should try and stand up straight as soon as possible?

A friend of my mom's just told me that after her hysterectomy, one of the nurses told her she needed to try and stand up straight to "put things back in place". Supposedly, after surgery things sag and need some re-adjustment.

I never heard of this before and will ask my doctor before I do ANYTHING. I was just wondering if anyone else had been told this and if it's true.

Thank you all.

Stand Up Straight ?

Never heard this. Would think it's next to impossible holding the belly and shuffling to the bathroom, to even care about posture. The past few days I've tried to pay more attention to my posture because I feel better standing straight now.

I don't believe standing up straight was about posture. She made me believe it was about your "insides" being put back in place.

I saw you had your surgery a month ago and was wondering, how long will I be holding my belly and shuffling to the bathroom?

Hope you're doing well and thanks for the reply.
