Recovery after Vagainal hysterectomy & Prolapse repair

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi I am 37 years old and had vaginal hysterectomy and prolapse repair (posterior and anterior) on 5th Feb. So I am 9 days post op.

so far so good, other than feeling VERY tired and some pain discomfort which I am managing ok with paracetamol and naproxen.

I have done very little since been home but today finally feel like getting ready and possibly going shopping to stock up (with husband who will obviously drive/carry bags ect)

Would this be too much too soon?

Husband suggested hiring a wheelchair so if can't manage been on feet could sit down?? Any advice/suggestions greatly appreciated. I need to start moving to help with bowels but don't want to overdo it.

Was given very little information when I was discharged from hospital other than no lifting.

Thanks. X
