My doctor is recommending a hysterectomy, but I can't take time for a six-week recovery period. What can I do?

In brief: Second opinion
Make sure you understand the reason for the hysterectomy as there may be other options available.
Robotic, vaginal or laparoscopic hysterectomies do not require 6 weeks off of low impact jobs. Find out if you are a cadidate for a minimal invasive option.
