In brief: Usually 1-2 days
Most ablations require very little recovery & you should be back to normal after 1-2 days.
You need to be at pelvic rest (nothing in the vagina) for 2-4 weeks, but otherwise downtime is minimal. If done under general anesthesia, 1-2 days is usually needed to recover from the anesthetic. Rarely pts may experience severe pain & need up to 2 weeks off to recover. Take the pain meds prescribed!
