What's comfortable.: At 6 weeks after a hysterectomy, your tissues should be full strength. You can get back to all your usual activities as you feel ready. You should still listen to your body and avoid any activities that are uncomfortable.

Should be: 6 weeks after hysterectomy you should be pretty much back to normal (unless you had a more complicated case). Go slowly returning to exercise. You can pick up whatever you could do before.

Should be fine: You need to be cleared by your doctor but typically you should not have any restrictions of your activity after six weeks. Hope this is helpful.
