How long did it take you to recover??

I had a Hysterectomy Monday and came home Tuesday. I had my cervix and uterus removed vaginally. I have had a few friends/relatives tell me their experience with it for recovery and all, but was wanting more input. Thanks!! (btw I am only 28)

  • I've heard to give yourself a good six weeks for recovery. Nothing strenuous.

  • It takes 6 weeks to recover because you have a lot of internal stitching.
