Recovery time

I had my laproscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy on friday. How much time should I plan on needing to stay home from work?

Re: Recovery time

It really depends on how well you heal, and if you end up with any post op infections. If all goes well, 2-4 weeks. If not, more like 8. I'm hoping things go well for you! Did your dr have an opinion either way? They should recommend a time frame. Ask at your 2 week checkup...

Re: Recovery time

A lot of women seem to manage to go back to work in 2 or 3 weeks. I'm just easing back into things but since we own our own businesses I can do whatever I want whenever I want.

If your job is an office job you will be able to return earlier than someone with a physical job. My dr. would have allowed 6 weeks if I had no complications. It is always easier to take less time than ask for more. You also want to heal properly and not strain yourself too much.
