How many postop visits after hysterectomy?

Hi everyone,
I am wondering how many postop appointments there will be after the hysterectomy. I am scheduled to have an LSH on Sept. 16th. Do we have to go to so many postop appointments before being told it's ok for sex? Is an internal vaginal exam done at every appointment?

I also had 2 checkups. One at 1.5 weeks and my other one was at 4.5 weeks. My 4.5 week one had an internal exam. It really didn't hurt and I was cleared for all activities.

I had one to make sure my infection had cleared at 4 weeks, then it was two months later that I saw my GYN, and was released from her care and left to go back to my GP for all my girly stuff.

Was told at 4 weeks that I was ready for sex when i chose to have it, at 2 months she was wellllll and I was like still waiting .. chcukles

Hi there,

I also had a LSH, and would have routinely only been seen at one month out for my first post-op visit. I did run into a slight infection, however, and had a couple visits prior to that.

When I was seen at one month, I was cleared for intercourse at that time. There was an internal exam at the visit, and then I was released for 6-8 months, because I am due for a PAP at that time.

Please take care, and please keep us posted on how you are doing! I wish you the very best for an uneventful surgery and a speedy recovery.

Sincerely, Trish

I had a six week checkup and that was it, although my surgeon called me at the two-week mark to see if I was doing well, and made it absolutely clear to me that I was to call his office if I had any questions or issues, and I'd be fast-tracked for an appointment if I needed one.

Hi Bkh,

I also had a LSH. I had a two week post-op appointment with no internal exam. My Dr. just looked at the progress of my two small hip incisions and my belly button incision. I also had a 6-week exam when I did have an internal. I got a greenlight for sex at the 6-week mark.

Sending best wishes~

Mary

I had three so far and another scheduled in Nov. I went in at 10 days to get staples out and another at 2 weeks to check incision only and go over pathology report. And then had one at 6 weeks for an internal exam. I have another one in NOV. for a follow up.
