After a minimally invasive so (robotic or laparoscopic), you will be groggy, and feel the worst incisional and pelvic discomfort
for the first 24 hours.
Motivated women may return to work after 2 to 3 days. You will continue to be achy, possibly bloated, and aware of the incisions with movements for about a week. Avoid heavy lifting and high impact activities for 2 weeks.
