Re: after the hysterectomy what are my retrictions?

Your doctor is the best one to ask since different surgeries have different healing lenghts, also each person is unique so their recovery is unique.

There will be lifting restrictions (including bending, stooping), there will be bathing restrictions (showers are usually ok, but baths, hot tubs, and pools are usually restricted). There will be pelvic rest (ie restrictions on intercourse and/or sexual play). There will also be be driving restrictions.

If your doctor (or the nurse) doesn't give you guidance on those things, you might ask specifically.

Your body only gets one chance to heal.

When is your hyst? What kind are you having?
