How much time off work after total vaginal lap robotic assisted hysterectomy?

I'm just curious. I had a total vaginal lapr with robot assist. I will be off work for 3 weeks. I am a school social worker. What type of surgery and how long did your Dr. excuse you from work?

I had the same surgery. He said two weeks, I took three. Nervous to go back so soon, even though I feel ok. Good luck. I'm a teacher so I'm in a similar situation work wise.

I had davinci with vaginal removal.

I'm a teacher and went back at about 3.5 weeks when school resumed after Christmas break.

I had davinci with vaginal removal also and I went back at five weeks. I should have stayed out another week or two due to fatigue.

Thanks. I had surgery in the 19th of Feb. I am cleared to go back to work in 3/16. I am a little nervous because I still have some pain and fatigue and my job is very busy. I still have 1 more week. Hopefully things will get better.

I had the Davinci Robotic Total Hysterectomy and was out of work for 5 weeks. There was no lifting, excess bending, and or twisting for several weeks after surgery. Healing prayers!

I had dvTH/BSO plus repairs and I went back to work at 3 weeks half time and full time at 4 weeks to a job where I was on my feet all day long.

If you don't feel you will be ready at 3 weeks, talk to your doctor and ask for an extended medical leave. We all heal at different rates and it isn't a sign of weakness if you need more time off.

on your surgery and recovery.

I also had DaVinci with vaginal removal of everything including ovaries. I went back at part time at 3 weeks, full time at 4. I have a desk job. I was tired more than usual, but it was manageable. Good luck!
