Re: How long to recover from a hysterectomy
Six weeks is the norm for an abdominal hysterectomy-partial or otherwise. I had a radical abdominal hysterectomy and didn't even start to feel like myself until the 5th week. I got an 8 week leave and took an extra week on top of that. See if you can get a couple more weeks. 4 weeks isn't enough time to recover from an abdominal surgery.
