Wearing High heeled shoes

a Friend of mine mentioned to me that I am NOT to wear high heeled shoes until I am 6 months post op.

Have any of you heard of this? My doctor didn't say anything to me and I never heard of such a thing.

I still can't wear heels that much at 7 months post op. You should take your time healing. Remember the inside is still healing so be very careful. I wear heels to church and that's about it. I have some Clark mules that I wear to work almost everday and they are very comfortable. Remember wearing heels can affect your back and you don't need anymore pain than you have already had or will still endure during this healing process. Take your time and find some cute flats to wear, there are tons of them out there.

My doctor didn't say anything to me either about wearing heels....I learned the hard way! I wore heels to school at 6 weeks post-op and regretted it! I had constant pain where my right ovary used to be for most of the day. The pain continued for a couple of hours after I took the shoes off.

At this point, flats are the only way to go for me, and I have a closet FULL of heels!

My Mom told me that I am not supposed to wear heels after a hysterectomy but my Dr. did not say anything about it. Since she is an elderly woman from the South, I thought it was only a old-fashioned, Southern "saying". I am starting to realize that most of the things that she is telling me is turning out to be accurate! Who knew???

I hadn't even thought about this. I am 6+ weeks post-op and I went to church Sunday for the first time. I wore heels and had no problem.

I go back to work next week, but I always wear tennis shoes to work and take heels in case I have a meeting.

My didn't mention it either.

I am 3 week post op and tried to wear heels to work on Wed. As I was walking around the house I could feel a pain on my side. So, I ditched the heels for flats.

I'm tall too. I don't wear heels very often, but then again, I don't get dressed up very often. I've never heard of not wearing heels after a hyst.

Wearing High heeled shoes

My doctor didn't mention a thing about heels and I wear them every day at work. I've been back to work since 4 weeks post op (part time for the first 3 weeks) and have been wearing heels since then. I can't say I've noticed any pain or problems from it.
