Partial hysterectomy what are precautions after surgery?

Depends. I depends on how the surgery was done. If you had a large incision on your abdomen then you should not be lifting more than 10-15 pounds for several weeks. If you had it done through the vagina or laparoscopically (small incisions) you don't have to worry about lifting restrictions. I also suggest that nothing go in the vagina for 6 weeks. Talk to your doctor about the specific details.
PAP smears. Partial hysterectomy usually means that cervix was not removed , same precautions as who did not have surgery, regular visits to the physician for pap smears for early detection of cancer of cervix.

I was struck with your comment that her gynecologist mentioned that the appendix might have to be removed after surgery if there are any complications with it - did they see any problems with her appendix? If so, then it may well be some appendiceal pathology. Complications related to any abdominal surgery include: adhesions, infection and bleeding. If she has an elevated white count or fever, then this may reflect infection. Other pathologies may include gallbladder, pancreatitis, kidney stones, urinary tract infection, diverticulitis of the colon, infection of the colon related to antibiotics, such as c.
