time off from work

What is a reasonable time off from work? I have a sitting job and would like to return part time in 4 weeks. I hopefully will have a vaginal.

Hi. There are many internal stitches to heal. Sitting is still hard on your body and back - so long periods of it is generally not recommended. If you have the time off, take advantage of the opportunity to heal and pamper yourself.


I had a TAH and returned to work VERY early in the recovery. I also work part time, at a desk. There were days emotionally that I didn't think I'd be able to keep it together. When I would come home, I would go straight to bed and was not much use to the family for a few weeks.

I'm just recently getting used to the fact that I'm having this surgery. I have large fibroids as well as an MRI found I had growths on my right ovary. I'm trying to get used to the fact that I'll be down for half the summer

Hi,
I had a vaginal hyst and was back to work in week 4 for 1/2 days. Week 5, I went to full-time. I also have a desk job. I was OK if I got up quite often for walks. Just take it easy. I was quite tired the first week, but went home at noon and took a nap, then was OK to fix dinner and make it to bedtime. Good Luck!
