How long should I wait to return to work after a laparoscopy for endometriosis?

Depends. Some can return as early as the next day, but most will wait for at least 2 to 3 days before returning to work. I have my patient not lift anything above 10# nor do any abdominal exercises for 7 days to allow the stitches to heal.
Varies. Some patients return to work 2-3 days after surgery other others take as long as 4 weeks. It depends on how you feel, how difficult the surgery is, and how physically demanding your job is. The more heavy lifting required the longer you should wait.
Depends. It depends on the complexity of the surgery, number and location of your incisions and pain control. The nature of your work is important as well.
