Re: Back to work post TVH?

I also work in health care, I have requested 6 weeks off and if I can and feel like going back sooner, I can always change it. It has been my experience that it is easier to go back early than it is to request more time off.

Re: Back to work post TVH?

I had a TAH BSO, and a desk job. While I went back after 3 weeks, it was TOUGH. I just did part time (20 hours per week) for several weeks and finally full time by 8 weeks.

The nurses and teachers in my recovery group took 6 or 8 weeks off - some of them with similar surgeries to you. With lots of standing and physical activities, you may want to take more time than just four...

Good luck..

Re: Back to work post TVH?

Thanks for the replies. I go back the week of TGiving, so it is luckily a short week. The docs I work with are men, and eye MDs, so all I will have to say is "uterus" and I can have all the time off I need. LOL

I am 12 weeks post TVH and still having a lot of pain. I work as a clerk at a large hospital. I went back at 8 weeks and did a gradual return to full time. Going back has been very challenging for me but we all heal different.

I waited 7 weeks, and I have an office job. You may have to wait and see how you are feeling.

Best wishes!!

Re: Back to work post TVH?

My dr said I had to wait 6 weeks before I could go back and I had to learn new ways to do my job! I'm a housekeeper at a assisted living community for the elderly and it's alot of work. I just had my tvh the 13th so we will see.
Let us know how things go.

Re: Back to work post TVH?

I will be 8 weeks tomorrow and while I have had a nice recovery, I wouldn't have wanted to go back to a job that strenuous at 4 weeks. I would take a minimum of 6 weeks and then see how you do. Every BODY is different.
