  • From the section or the hysterectomy?

    Here's a link about the C-section procedure and recovery. Your recovery will be a little different, in that your bleeding will be greatly reduced (or even eliminated) by the hysterectomy. You may be more sore, since more was taken out of you, and you will probably need lots of help taking care of your new baby and readujusting to life for the first two or three weeks. I don't think recovery or the procedure will be much more complicated than just a C-section.
