In brief: 6 to 8 weeks

An abdominal hysterectomy with a large incision requires 6 to 8 weeks to get back to full energy and completely normal exercise and activities.
The recovery is significantly less (2 to 4 weeks) with a vaginal, laparoscopic, or davinci robotic hysterectomy.

Many patient's who have a daVinci robotic hysterectomy can also go home from the hospital the same day.
