How do I prepare for a hysterectomy? What do I need to do before my hysterectomy to get ready for the surgery? .
Can anybody tell me why a hysterectomy is a hard surgery for a woman to recover from. I've had many surgeries but this one is the worse one ever.
What type?: There are minimally invasive hysterectomies and traditional abdominal hysterectomies. I'm thinking that you likely had an abdominal hyst where they made an incision like a cesarean section? If so, as we age, surgery becomes harder to heal from, we don't bounce back as easily. If the surgery was for endometriosis, you could have issues with scar formation that cause pain. Lots of different poss. ...Read more

Depends: It depends on the size of the fibroid and the skill of the surgeon. Some surgeons are very skilled at minimally invasive or robotic surgeries and are comfortable even with very large fibroids. Make sure you are evaluated by someone skilled in advanced laparoscopy/robotics for an opinion if a different doc tells you that you must have an open hysterectomy. That's not always the case! ...Read more
Depends: I depends on how the surgery was done. If you had a large incision on your abdomen then you should not be lifting more than 10-15 pounds for several weeks. If you had it done through the vagina or laparoscopically (small incisions) you don't have to worry about lifting restrictions. I also suggest that nothing go in the vagina for 6 weeks. Talk to your doctor about the specific details. ...Read more
