Back from my 2 week post op exam

Had my 2 week exam yesterday..........all the doctor did was look at the incision and said it looked fine........

I now have the green light to do just about anything which does not involve heavy straining(he said I can vacuum again--darn--hehe).........and if I feel tired,just rest...

Of course, no sex yet.....and I go back in 4 weeks.........

I am feeling pretty good......Im surprised I feel this good after the way i felt just 2 weeks ago......amazing how the body can bounce back........

wow!
Letting you vacuum at 2 weeks??
I was released at 4 weeks but was told not to vacuum until 6 weeks, and I had no problems with my recovery.
I think 2 weeks is too early, you can still tear your insides.
Of course this is only my opinion.

But glad you were released so early.

Congratulations! Glad to hear that your recovery is going so well!

My doctor did say I could "try" very light vacuuming at 4 weeks, but to stop immediately if I felt pulling or was spotting.

I'm really not sure I ever want my doctor to release me to vacuum...... how about one of you gals who got the green light to vacuum come visit my house!!! Glad to hear folks are healing and moving on with life.

Kathy, did you ask your doc about external stimulation & orgasm? I can't have actual intercourse yet either, but at my 2 week checkup, my doc gave me the green light for playing around & even orgasm. It's certainly worth asking. DH & I have been having lots of fun. Good luck.

I'm 3 months post op from a LAVH and vacuuming still bothers me if I do too much at a time. I think you should hold off a bit. (just my humble opinion)Take Care!

I had my two week post op appt. yesterday, and both doc.s told me no vacuuming yet. I could do light housework, take baths, and they upped my lifting to 20lbs, if I needed. I go back in 4 weeks for a full exam and if that is good, then hubby and i have the okay to resume sex. I feel great, and sometimes I have to tell myself to slow down.

I agree with holding off on the vacuuming...I still had a hard time at 6 weeks and waited another 2....and I only had 4 small, one inch incisions..better safe than sorry

No,I didnt ask him about it.....I figured if I shouldnt strain or anything,having an orgasm,would do that to me....haha.....I can wait.........

My husband insisted on vacuuming yesterday.........I will try not to vacuum much..however,he is on the road alot and I can not stand the dog hairs that accumulate....

I know what you mean there! We have 2 dogs and 3 cats........talk about pet dander!!!

And I agree w/what the others said, I'm not sure I EVER want to be given permission to vacuum again! ha! Actually, vacuuming is the most "pleasant" chore to me....maybe if I'm forever barred from mopping.......
