Re: lifting restrictions after hysterectomy

Hi, I was told nothing over 10 pounds for at least 6 weeks and the Dr clears you. Have to remember though you may feel good there's alot of healing still going on inside. We only get one chance at healing properly the right way once. Not worth complications by rushing it.

I was also told no lifting for 2 weeks after hysterectomy (nothing over 10 lb).
due to the fact that it can cause a rupture. Something you certainly don't want.

Also depends on the type of surgery. My wife's restrictions were for only 3-4 weeks but she had straight laparscopic surgery and was actually cleared to drive within a week of her surgery.
