Question about COVID-19 vaccine post-hysterectomy

Good morning ladies --

I haven't had the COVID-19 vaccine yet, but would like to. When is it safe to get it after surgery? I don't want to tax my immune system too early.

I have my 2 week post-op appointment tomorrow and plan to ask my doctor, but wanted to maybe get some feedback here as well.

Thanks and I hope everyone is doing well <3.

Re: Question about COVID-19 vaccine post-op

This is a very good question, and I'll be interested in reading what your doctor says. In my state, I'm in the current group eligible to receive the vaccine, and got the initial steps going before I underwent emergency surgery on March 12th. The only thing I need to do is schedule the appointment for the first round, but the provider I'm choosing schedules out a week in advance only, and my follow up is March 31st.

Here's my thought process. Most of us are aware that there can be side effects to the vaccine which can leave you feeling poorly to sick, even if just for a day or two. If I'm having fever, chills, headache, nausea, aches, etc., that could be a complication or setback in recovery from my surgery, and I wouldn't want to dismiss those as side effects from a vaccine when I could have an infection of some sort.

So, I'm going hold off for a bit, but I'll be asking my doctor too.

Excellent points, Cussette. They echo my own concerns as well.

I will post what my doctor says when I ask her tomorrow.

Here's to an uneventful recovery. I hope you continue to feel better every day.

So I had my 2 week follow up today.

My doctor said that since it’s been 2 weeks since surgery and I haven’t had any issues or complications, that it would be fine to schedule the COVID-19 vaccine if I wanted to get it.
