recovery time

I'm scheduled for a TAH/BSO on April 27. July 9 we are going on vacation to Walt Disney World and a Disney cruise. We will be at Disney World for 4 1/2 days. Am I going to be up to all the walking by then?

Hi Carolyn,

You'll probably be okay but you'll have to listen to your body and pace yourself accordingly. I'm 8 weeks post op from a TAH/BSO and repairs. I think I could manage it but would be tired at the end of the day, not to mention have swelly belly.

We all heal differently and hopefully if you have a speedy and uneventful recovery like I have you could manage it so long as your pace yourself.

Wishing you well ..............Karen

Hi, at 10 weeks post op, you should be able to have your vacaction, barring any complications ( & I'll pray that all goes well for you ). Discuss it with your dr and follow his/her advice. I had a tah/bso and was released to resume normal activities at 6 weeks. I did wait an extra week though and then started back slowly.
Pacing yourself and stopping to rest when you need to is a good idea. I'm really jealous about the Disney cruise - I'd love to do that!

You should be perfectly fine, providing you listen to the doctor and allow yourself the proper recovery time afterwards. I felt completely back to normal at 5 to 6 weeks, and I know a lot of that has to do with the fact that I did absolutely NOTHING for the first 2 weeks and very little after that. Listen to the doctor and your body (and all of us LOL). And have a great vacation - sounds wonderful.
