If no raw areas: If there are no external wounds that are raw, you may swim. Increase your activity gradually, as you will not be in as good a shape as you were before surgery. It is good that you are getting back to your exercise.

Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

You need to be comfortable with the idea of a hysterectomy, of not having periods any more. Focus on the positive. Make sure you have taken care of details, like food in the house post op. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Generally < 24 hours: I do a lot of robotic surgery. I find that most patients can go home later that day (about 4 to 6 hours after surgery) or the following morning. Once a woman is able to get up and walk around a bit, urinate, and keep a little food and liquid down, she is usually ready for discharge. Because robotic surgery involves only "key-hole" incisions, the majority of patients recover much more quickly. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

So there are definite advantages for robotic or laparoscopic surgery when compared to abdominal hysterectomy. Fortunately, abdominal hysterectomy is not needed very often today. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
