Re: No 6 week check up, how do I know Im healed?

Over here, there's just the 6 week check-up at the hospital where it was done, but when I was discharged they gave me a handful of useful leaflets/booklets as to what I could do or not do; about the surgery itself; and guidelines as to what I should see my GP about if I had any concerns in the interim. Or when I should contact ER.
The 6 week check-up was with the surgeon, who did an internal exam as well as admiring my scar! .

I think that's the norm here. I felt well cared for... and impressed with the public health system. I had a 5-day hospital stay for a TAH/BSO.

Re: No 6 week check up, how do I know Im healed?

I'm in the US ... I had a two week check up and when I asked about six week check up my doctor told me no, come back in six months ... I kept my cervix so she said she will do pap smear and internal exam at that time and if all us well hi back to yearly visits ... she looked at my incision and said I was healing well ... since I had no bleeding she doesn't expect me to bleed at all ... she told me I can go back to work and resume normal activities including sex at four weeks as long as I'm not in pain ...
