I have just read my patient information leaflet properly. Recovering from gynaecological surgery. St George's Healthcare NHS Trust.Its actually very good. Exercise - . First 10-14 days gently move around home. Go out for a walk every day starting with 10 minutes building up as able to 1/2 hour a day by 6 weeks. From 6 to 8 weeks, low impact exercise like swimming or Pilates. Avoid sit ups & other advanced abdominal exercises. Delay high impact exercise for 3-4 months, aerobics running etc. lift nothing heavier than a full kettle for 6 weeks. After that avoid anything that makes you strain. Lots more eg bend at knees, usual manual handling health & safety advice. I will start going out tomorrow I think just a 10 minute walk
hope this is useful
