surgery day fast approaching

I am having a partial vaginal hysterectomy on the 20th of Jan. Most of the recovery info seems to be on abdominal. I know that it is a better recovery, but I am not sure of the time to be off work and I have a house full of kids and a husband that is not very helpful. My mom is coming for a few days but can't stay that long. I am a little nervous about after my mom leaves and not having that much help, any suggestions.

Hi there!

If you haven't already checked them out, our Hysterectomy Checkpoints has lots of information for you regarding your surgery and recovery time.

I had an abdominal surgery. From what I have been able to gather, the main difference between abdominal and vaginal surgery is that with vaginal surgery there is no EXTERNAL incision. However, you still have dozens (in some cases hundreds) of internal stitches.

Generally speaking, you'll be pretty limited in your activities for 4-6 weeks or more. (One of my employees had a vaginal hysterectomy last year, and even though she insisted she could come back earlier, I made her stay home for six weeks, and after she came back, she thanked me for the extra time. )

Hope this helps. I'm sure other (((sisters))) will be by to give you some additional perspective on this!
