Laprascopic Myomectomy

Hi all

I am having a Laprascopic Myomectomy on 11 January 2018. Recovery is 2- 4 weeks I have read but not sure which is correct I would like to know due to work commitments and just wondered if there are any other Ladies on here to advise.

    Take 4 weeks. I would not want to go back any time before I was healed.

    The recovery is 4 weeks but you can go back to work 2 weeks after as long as you dont lift.

    Based upon my own experience, I'd go for four weeks, however I did lose a lot of blood during surgery and was anaemic which held me back the most. I guess it depends what type of work you do as well. If you're sat at a desk all day and no lifting is required, you might feel ok to do it after two weeks, but I wouldn't push it, it's just not worth it.
