  • I didn't have a full hysterectomy (still have ovaries) but had to be cut from hip to hip since the problem was so bad. I was fully recovered in about 6 weeks but was able to get around without pain in about a week. I am not trying to make it sound bad, but I have had surgeries and the hysterectomy was the worst by far. I wish you luck and a speedy recovery!!!
