Doctor insights on:
Hysterectomy Recovery Time Off Work
6 weeks: It can take 6 weeks for you to be back up to speed after a hysterectomy, although many patients are doing well after 2 weeks. It is important to move, but to not over do. Avoid lifting. Eat a nutritious well balanced diet and drink lots of water. If you have any problems, get in to see your surgeon. Take care!
3 to 8 weeks: There is variability depending on the reason for the hysterectomy, the age and health of the patient, and the way the surgery is performed. A vaginal hysterectomy, davinci robot or laparoscopic hysterectomy have the quickest recovery, as short as 3 to 4 weeks for healthy patients. A hysterectomy with an abdominal incision takes more like 6 to 8 weeks.See 1 more doctor answer
Hysterctomy recovery: Please do a full visit where your doctor will explain all the risks and details. Everyone varies with recovery. I tell people to really feel well between three and six weeks.See 3 more doctor answers
I am 36 yrs old & really wanna get a hysterectomy done. What is the average cost, risks & recovery time?
It depends: First you need a thorough evaluation including an exam, ultrasound and endometrial evaluation to decide on type of hysterectomy and who is the best person to do it. If laparoscopic hysterectomy is an option then there is a potential for less pain and shorter recovery. The costs would depend on your insurance plan. Good luck.
Depends on type: The internal healing after hysterectomy, traditionally takes six weeks. However, if you have a vaginal or laparoscopic hysterectomy, you will be up and around very quickly. You can probably go back to work when you feel like it, same for driving, usually within a couple of weeks. No heavy lifting or sex for six weeks, and you may tire easily for a couple of weeks. Abdominal surgery takes longer.
Varies: The recovery can be as quick as a few days or as slow as a few weeks. Most women spend only a few hours or one night in the hospital after the surgery.See 1 more doctor answer
What is the recovery time for a laperscopic hysterectomy for someone with diebetis and no thyroid??
In general which has a longer recovery time a robotic hysterectomy or a bladder sling WITH a recocele repair with out mesh for the recocele?
Pain: Generally, slings and minimally invasive hysterectomies, such as robotic, result in very little pain post-operatively. Rectocele repairs are variable from person to person but this usually results in more pain than either of the 2 above. Usually, after a couple of weeks, this pain will resolve also but initially, rectocele repair is usually more painful than robotic hysterectomy.See 1 more doctor answer
What is the recovery time for laperscopic hysterectomy for someone with type 1 diebetis and no thyroid?
Depends on care: It depends on the type of care you receive for your ancillary medical issues. Is your diabetes under control? If not, it will take longer to heal with a higher risk of infections. Are your taking thyroid replacement meds? If not, the anesthesiologist may not put you to sleep. Finally, the number of cases and level of skill of your GYN surgeon matter. Higher numbers better results.See 2 more doctor answers

Technique: That depends on the technique used (open vs laparoscopic vs robotic. It also depends on the weight, fitness, age and health status of the patient. It also depends on the type of job the patient has. Discuss with your surgeon.
My mom is having a full hysterectomy (davinci) & lives alone. I'm going to need to take time off of work. Generally how long will I need to plan for?
Several days...: At least. Depending on her age and condition, a week may be required. Her surgeon will have suggestions based on her overall condition and the anticipated time required for him/her to complete the procedure. At some point more limited help will probably suffice.See 2 more doctor answers
Same low right side pain. Had complete hysterectomy. Blood work normal. Could it still be appedicitius? Sometimes very painful, hurts to move at times
Possibly: Simply having abdominal surgery puts you at risk for your intestines to adhere to other abdominal tissues. Problems can range from pain caused by the inability of intestines to move properly, constipation, or an intestinal blockage. You may also have abdominal nerve pain because of surgery. If you have fever, nausea/vomiting or feel very i'll then be checked out at an emergency dept immediately.
I am experiencing breast pain. It is really painful and this has happened every few months now. I had a hysterectomy 2 years ago. I have been to the doctor several times for this. All of my blood work comes back ok. Should I try HRT? I have my right
Cut off question: Unfortunately your question was cut off and incomplete.
2 weeks: A total laparoscopic hysterectomy done with the da vinci robot makes for a much easier recovery than a traditional hysterectomy. Usually patients can go home the same day or after an overnight hospital stay. Most can go back to work in 2 weeks unless they have a physically demanding job. No intercourse for 6-8 weeks.See 3 more doctor answers
