Surgery went well

I had my surgery, and it went well overall - I had a 7 cm left ovarian cyst removed, and my enlarged uterus remove (kept cervix). The pathology report showed that I had adenomysosis also. I am recovering slowly, but recovering.

After my post-op visit last week, I was planning to return to work next Monday (about 2 1/2 week mark, but I called and asked them for another week since I am still swollen and having a decent amount of abdominal pain. I also had bladder problems immediately after surgery, and still do, so I am glad to have the extra time off. What bothers me is that the doctor and his assistants haven't been very clear about anything post-op or able to answer many of my questions. I was told to have intercourse anytime I am ready (once past the initial first 2-week mark) which seems way too soon to me.They gave me no other rules about exercise or anything. I keep asking, but the answers are very vague. I think 6 weeks sound better for both intercourse and exercise.

Thanks for the advice about not doing anything until I am up to it. I do feel like my doctor is expecting alot from me - they make it sound like most people are good to go even after 1 week which I find hard to believe. I think the advice on this forum is much more helpful!!! Thanks.
