Cleaning lady has lost her mind! You need to rest until your doctor says otherwise! If you don't, you will pay for it later!

Re: Back to cleaning after 1 week??

I am two and a half weeks post-op and even now, there is no way I could get on my hands and knees to scrub a floor. I can dust and do dishes and things like that, but no vacuuming (dr. said) or sweeping. I had a LVH, which is not the same surgery, but my incisions are small, like yours will be.

I have restrictions on lifting and bending, so if it's on the floor, someone else has to pick it up! I was very sore for about a week, and bending to put on socks was hard. I decided it was better to be barefoot and slip on flip flops if I needed to!

Good luck on your surgery and recovery!

Re: Back to cleaning after 1 week??

I'm afraid to tell the lady I clean for that I have to wait until I see the doctor at my 2 week checkup. I even called the nurse and she said how can anyone be so insensitve!! You need to tell her even if you are feeling good and in good shape you can't be on your hands and knees washing and scrubbing floors for 2-3 hours. I would think she would understand I just had my uterus out and need to heal. I have been getting around really good. I don't mind dusting or little things but not on my hands and knees scrubbing floors pushing a big bucket of water around.
