Yoga after total abdominal hysterectomy - how long did you wait?

I'm 32 and did yoga almost every day before my surgery. Today I'm 3 weeks post op I'm doing much better than I thought I would be so that is wonderful. I'm not planning on starting yoga again until 6 weeks out, I don't want to hurt myself in any way. Do any of you practice yoga, how long did you wait? What where some poses that are good to start off with? What where challenges that you had?

Re: Yoga after TAH? how long did you wait?

I waited much longer than that. At least three months, due to the stretching and spine twisting that some of the positions require. I think the easiest things for me were down dog and the sun salute. But Kundalini Yoga was out of the question, with all the twisting and slamming of some of the exercises, and those 5 Tibetans were just too much for me.

Re: Yoga after TAH? how long did you wait?

I love yoga and weight training. I am almost 4 weeks post op. I saw my doc for a 2 week post up and asked about yoga. I am not suppose to do anything involving my core or abs till she clears me. At 2 weeks post op, she gave me permission to do arm exercise in a chair, not lifting more than 20 pounds.
She made it sound like I may be able to do more between 4 and 6 weeks. I miss my yoga!!

I'm curious about this too. Tried a gentle warrior II last night and quickly thought better of it. Mountian and easy tree pose with breathing is helping to keep me centered. Ujjayi breathing helps to warm and relax my stomach. Miss my downward dog!
