How Much Activity?

I had a vag. hysterectomy with a sub-pubo vaginal bladder sling on July 8th. I stayed until Wed. a.m. (couldn't get out fast enough). I have been up and walking around the house, etc. without any problems, but I want to start walking again. I know it has only been 1 week, but I'm afraid of gaining weight. On the other hand, I don't want to ruin what I had done. The 3 inch incision over the pubic bone is healing nicely and I have no pain. Any suggestions from those who have dealt with this would be appreciated.

How Much Activity?

Hi Sandi

My advice would be to do "baby walks" and slowly increase the distance. I started by going to the end of my truck..... then halfway down my driveway.... and slowly I have made it to the end of my road. Just dont do too much distance at once and when you venture outside for the first time make sure someone is with you in case you start feeling light headed or need to take a rest. Remember our bodies sometimes have a tendency to fool us and make us think we are doing awesome then all of a sudden it says ok, enough of this.......

Take it slow and remember your water!! Hope you do great!

Remember...don't go until you think you are starting to get have to go back!!! Just take it easy!
As far as gaining weight...I'm hoping that the swelling can account for at least 20 lbs!
