Hysterectomy: A total abdominal hysterectomy could last 45 minutes to multiple hours depending on how complicated your case is, prior surgeries, your weight, findings intraoperatively, cancer related surgery etc. If it is for a thin patient, with no prior surgeries, no pelvic masses etc, probably around 45 min to 2 hours depending on surgeon experience.

Several weeks: If possible consider a second opinion. If in fact a hysterectomy is needed at this time, look to a minimally invasive procedure such as laparoscopic or robotic. The visualization is better, the ability to remove disease is improved, and with smaller, less painful scars you can often ho home on the same day or the next day after surgery. Recovery for open surgery is typically 6 weeks vs 1-2 weeks. ...Read more

Need good surgeon: A laparoscopic or a robot-assisted total hysterectomy is a complex surgery that requires significant training and experience, especially in complicated cases like large fibroids or significant scarring due to endometriosis.

Usally about 6 weeks: Most of us do not do very many total abdominal hysterectomies anymore, since I do most of mine either laparoscopically, with the robot or vaginally which cause the patient much less pain. And I do a lot of endometrial ablations in my office which can stop heavy or prolonged bleeding so my patients do not even need to do a hysterectomy. ...Read more
