Re: How long to recover from a hysterectomy

Hi a friend of mine had one and nearly died from it because she nearly bled to death. I think if I remember correctly some of the bleeding was inside.The nurse had tried to get ahold of the doctor for help but there was no reply until nearly too late. Fortunately she made it to tell us. Because there has been 2 weeks, chances are the healing has been enough to avoid this problem but if there is any question a health professional probably should be called. In the years past undone or busted stitching was something others have discussed. Infection could also be a potential to find out about. A temperature maybe aught to be taken at least once a day also. An ordinary laparoscopy may take 6-8 weeks before feeling completely healed up. It can be a similar length of time for healing for a broken toe. Hope this is useful. :smile:
