how long were you down and out after having a hysterectomy?

I had a partial hysterectomy 1/8/09. My left ovary, tub, uterus and cervix were removed via laprascopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy. I still have my right ovary. I guess there was a lot of scar tissue and adhessions from the back of my uterus attached to the back of the pelvic wall.

  • I had my uterus and cervix removed abdominally and followed my doctors recovery instructions to the letter for 6 weeks and had no problems.
